Another great evening at Fork and Barrel in Philly's East Falls. There is no other place like it!!!! Rare draft and gravity European craft beer(not an oxymoron) downstairs. Entirely candle lit. No TVs just great music, mostly Blue Note and other quality jazz and lots of conversation Feels like you have gone back in time and across a pond.
Upstairs is an "American Cask Saloon". Two gravity pour firkins on the bar at 50°, great bottle selection and they do 'flights' of beer from their bottle collection. Even a small salon type space screened off with comfy chairs. Food upstairs is currently just hot dogs done 1000 diff ways. They had a beer from Florida dry hopped with lemon leaves :)
Has anyone else been?? They have two other places, one in Emmaus, Tap and Table, and one in Bethlehem, the Bookstore....
Located on Ridge Avenue, just north of Midvale, across from the fire house.: 4213 Ridge Ave
dinner Tues- Sun at 4. Serve food till 11, drinks until 2am
