While not located in Philly, or really even near Philly, Troegs is a good ending point to a day at Hershey Park, located a mere 5 minutes from the park on the same street. They have great beer (and if you are lucky they will have an interesting beer from the scratch series on tap), and really really really good food. The tasting room/dining area is impressive and big. The bar is huge. They fill growlers and crowlers of anything on tap to take home. towards the left side of the bar is the ordering for the kitchen. You place your order, they give you a pager, you find a table, get drinks and wait for the food. I had the lamb falafel, served on naan, which was really interesting, served with a harissa chutney and tahina. It was one large "falafel", which was a mixture of lamb, and perhaps chickpeas and a side of thick hand cut fresh fries. It all worked well together. My wife got the seafood roll, which was chock full of shrimp and crawfish in a light mayo sauce--think lobster roll, also served with a side of fries. The highlight of the night though was the grilled cheese, which was made with 4 types of cheese, sandwiched between two huge/thick slices of brioche, served in a bowl with tomato soup on the bottom. Cheese oozed out the edges with a caramelized crispy cheese on the cut side of the sandwich. Top the food off with a nice beer, and it is a great cap to a really fun day at the park.
Tried Amor y Amargo last night (Friday). Yes, it's very small, and I'm glad I was there early when it wasn't crowded. It's a narrow space with only about 6, 7? (not sure exactly how many) seats at the bar plus standing room. I got there soon after it opened at 5pm, and I thought I was too early, but by 5:20pm, the bar seats were all taken and a couple of people were standing. I enjoyed the Diamonds and Guns (going by the menu online: Atsby Armadillo Cake vermouth, chartreuse, genever, white rum, celery bitters). Boozy but balanced so you weren't overwhelmed. Based on the menu, the cocktails seem to be pretty strong in alcohol so I only had one cocktail (pacing myself because I was going to Booker and Dax and Pouring Ribbons next
Although not food (google Monk's diet), it is important to note that Flying Dog Brewery now can serve pints for consumption on site, and they have built a really nice outdoor beer garden.
A buddy just opened a new package brewery (no restaurant) in Lorton after a very long journey and many hurdles overcome. The team here is making some amazing craft brews and I'm really pulling for them to succeed. Great people. http://www.fairwindsbrewing.com/?test=1
