After reading about all the beer and wine hubbub- that Jack Curtin would not refer to as hilarious hilarity- I decided to venture to Main St. Manayunk myself and check out the scene.
(I also had to drop of Sly Fox oktoberfest stickers.)
It was at an odd time of day- around 3:45- so no one was there. There were no young twentysomethings. Except my roommate and she was drinking beer. And they had a great beer list. The bartender had mentioned that he was personally excited that Coors Light wasn't even on the menu.
So-what did they have?
Atomium Grand Cru
Sly Fox Royal Weisse (Now Oktoberfest)
Boulder Mojo IPA
Troegs Rugged Trail Brown Ale
and PBC's Walt Wit
Dogfish Indian Brown
Eel River Organic Pale
Hitachino Nest (couldn't see which style)
Stoudts Fat Dog Stout
Not too shabby. Maybe some of their neighbors can even take some pointers.
I checked out their menu before heading west and I had already decided I would get the short rib pizza. $13
I also ordered the beets and goat cheese. The beets were HUGE. The goat cheese portion was not. But I still enjoyed. And felt healthier for it.
The service and the food were great. It's definitely worth heading down.
Just make sure you stop at Old Eagle, Dawson St. or the Ugly Moose while your in the
19127 zip code.
