Beer Heaven in South Philly
Posted by:  Allison Lowrey

I don't cross over to the west side of Broad Street in South Philly very often. I mean, who needs to go to the library, anyway? It's a self-admitted mental block. I like to compare the side of Broad that I live on with neighborhoods like the Huxtable's. And across the street, I see the burning, rioting city from The Crow. When I finally mustered the energy to cross Broad and set off to find the South Philly Tap Room, it came at me like an oasis in the desert: a hip joint jutting out from a sparse, litter-lined street. With one of the best beer menus in the city, it's no wonder people flock to this cozy establishment that they recently had to expand to the space next door. The bartenders and servers are polite, but not overly friendly--so don't look for unsolicited beer recommendations. Except for the random experience of sitting at the bar next to an incredibly inebriated prostitute who kept lighting cigarettes and falling off her stool while angrily slurring at her friend, the SPTR has been nothing other than a quaint delight.
