South Philadelphia Tap Room & Philadelphia Eagles
If Saturday was about music and beer, then Sunday was about football and beer. What an end to the weekend! Scott and I made a trip to the Philadelphia Eagles Carnival & Auction at Lincoln Financial Field. So, after an afternoon in South Philly, what to do for dinner and drink but head over to South Philadelphia Tap Room, of course! A burger and a wild boar burrito paired with Sly Fox O'Reilly Stout, Troegs Hopback Amber, and Rogue Brutal Bitter was just what we needed for nourishment before hitting the road back home. The joint was a bit dead on this particular Sunday evening. But, chalk it up to a late summer Sunday evening in the city. Because, after everyone returns from The Shore where they've no doubt read up on their Philadelphia Magazine Best of Philly issue, they'll be back in the fall to find SPTR nestled away in South Philly as the recipient of two 2006 Best of Philly awards...Best Beer Bar & Best Jukebox categories. My last visit to SPTR was earlier this year, and they continue to not disappoint. Be sure to check them out when you're in Philadelphia, especially if you are at a game or event at the stadium complex in South Philly.
