My fiancee and I are doing the same.

temple, we probably sat near each other. We were in the room to the right for 7pm reservations. Terrific dinner and beers.

We got in at 8:30 and sat in the same room. We went to Tired Hands on Saturday and both agreed that we prefer Forest and Main.

hello philly area brewers! i'm from telford, so just north of PA and just moved here about a year ago. Only spots i've been able to find decent craft selections has been wegmans and whole foods. Should i venture down into the city to get a better selection? I'm looking to expand my variety, and am really interested in the russian river selections. I noted some spots that have them from their distro list but i seem to strike out. Is pliny the elder available anywhere at the time?

Thanks all!

I've seen the Elder only on tap (and pretty often, too), but their sour selection in the city is pretty decent.

Welcome to the area!

Are you looking for bottle selection or draft? In Southampton (15 minute or so drive for you) there's the Beer Store. Biggest selection of bottled beer you'll find anywhere, possibly the world. It'll make your head spin! They do have Russian River.

If you go downtown and want to know what's on tap where, use Philly Tap Finder. Lots of places get Pliney the Elder and Younger on tap but you have to wait in line usually and early. Go to Monk's Café sometime, you won't regret it (but it does get crowded as people on this thread have mentioned).

I've seen facebook posts about this place and each time I see pictures I need to change my shorts. Really decent selection.

My parents live a mile from the Beer Store so I go there fairly often. It's almost too big a selection. When you walk in it's hard to focus because it's so overwhelming. And that's not counting the 12 or so taps they have for a pint in store or take away growler. If there's heaven on earth it's probably the Beer Store!

That's awesome info I appreciate it. That's not too far frommy work so I might take a trip one day. I didn't know about the tap list site either, will have to start keeping tabs on it! Thanks again!

No problem! You'll find that the Philly area is one of the best places for beer in the country. Another suggestion is Capones on Germantown Pike in East Norriton. They have around 40 taps and their selection is always incredible. So worth a visit and they get the Plineys from time to time.
