Hey all, found a gem of a brew-pub today. It's called Nodding Head Brewery on 1516 Samson Street. I'm writing this review/recommendation from the pub right now. The place is very cozy yet big enough to spread out with a few friends. The beer... right now they have five beers on tap, a rye ipa, a wee heavier, a German wheat beer, a pale lager, and an english brown ale. The rye IPA is one of the best IPA's I've ever had in my beer drinking days. The grog is also amazing but, I would only try it once, it's heavy for my taste. About to try the lager next.
Gordon Grubb is the brewer here and he is a real cool guy. He showed me how he brews here and actually sat down with me for a bit to have a drink. Very cool place, great staff, and great beer. Gordon seems very willing to answer any questions also.
I give it four out of five beers!!!!

Oh yea, Nodding Head is good stuff. Also check out South Philly Taproom. I was there for a Philly Beer Week event, the manager is a beer geek, they have EXCELLENT stuff on tap.

Plus always have some Troegs on, so I'm a little partial

The food at Nodding Head ain't too shabby either. Can't wait for them to get their Berliner Weisse back on tap!!

Kooky names but they are usually tasty beers. I'd love to see their hoptimus prime return.

I work in the neighborhood so I stop in there every now and then - great beers but those steps can be a bit tricky on the way out!
