The Shoestring Catch

Philadelphia Beers

After Cheesesteaks at Pat’s, Greg took us to a South Philly bar called the Tap Room.  We were stuffed from our cheesesteaks, but Greg says their food is phenomenal.  The Tap Room was very nice and sort of reminded me of a bar we frequent in Austin called the Gingerman.  They had about 20 beers on tap and a good bottle selection that included the nearly sacred Brooklyn Local 2.  This is supposed to be one of the beers in the country, but it also costs over $20 a bottle.  I would like to bring one or two back home to Texas, but we will have to play that one by ear.

I had two beers at the Tap Room: The Philadelphia Brewing Company Walt Wit and the Flying Fish Farmhouse Ale.  The Walt Wit was a cleverly named wit bier that was very refreshing without being too sweet.  I also enjoyed the Farmhouse Ale, which is brewed in Cherry Hill, New Jersey.  I had never had this style of beer before, and I can’t really think of a way to describe it, so I will borrow some words of wisdom from Eric, who also ordered one: “it tastes like a beer”.
