I usually don't venture out of the city past Northern Liberties, but if you want to go to a PHENOMENAL beer bar head north to the Port Richmond/Kensington area and step into the Memphis Taproom. The bar looks like a modern gastro-pub but has a more light, energy, or something about it that makes it feel much less pub-ish, and more of a bar. There are 10 or so taps but they are never the same from what I hear and they are hand-selected by real beer pros. When I was in they featured seasonals by Yards, Allagash, Stone, and a few other west coast breweries I can't remember. Servers know their beers and told us that the owners are always finding the best beers from the best breweries and putting it on tap until it gets finished then moving on to the next beer. I know there are a lot of beer bar/gastro-pubs all over now, but I would put Memphis Taproom in my top 5 in the city and maybe even my top 4. The food is also top notch - I went with suicide onion rings and the roasted pork sandwich and they were both great...my friend got the burger and said it was awesome (Also, everyone I have talked to has raved about the menu and the the food). It isn't cheap, but it also isn't expensive and based on the quality of the food and BEER it is beyond worth the moderate prices. If you are in the area or really like great beer bars make it a point to stop by Memphis Taproom.
PROS:The same ownership that runs Grace Tavern and Local 44 - I live southwest of the city so Local 44 is a place that I have been to several times and love as well.

Excellent beer that represents breweries from around the state, country, and world. Ownership does a great job of tap management with new, fresh beers on tap that fit the season perfectly.
CONS:It's to far from me. Otherwise I would be a frequent visitor.

I agree with this review.
