Monks Cafe - 16th & spruce - THE place to go for beer, particularly Belgians. Food is great, but be prepared to wait a long time for a table.
Nodding Head - Sansom St between 15th and 16th. Good food, good home made beer.
Good Dog - 15th Street somewhere between Chestnut and Pine. Lots of regional beer, food is good too.
Eulogy - Chestnut and 2nd. Sorta like Monks, but food isn't as good.
North Third - 3rd and Brown.
The Abbaye - 3rd and Fairmount
The Standard Tap - 2nd and Poplar
McGillians - 1310 Drury Street - Oldest operational bar in Philadelphia, a bit of a college atmosphere, but they have good beer on tap.
Other ones that I've heard are good bars but have not been to: Silk City, South Philadelphia Tap Room, Side Car Cafe, Atlantis Bar.
If you're in town on a saturday between 12 and 3, head over to Philadelphia Brewing Company and/or Yards Brewing Company for free tastings.
