On the 18th–Kensington edition!

Like beer? Beer gardens? Exploring Philly?


(Look at their adorable little beer garden! Don’t worry–to beat the heat, there will be indoor and outdoor seating.)

  Tonight! We’re doing a very special On the 18th in the neighborhood of new board member, Lola Arellano-Fryer, Kensington!

5pm start, but feel free to come later.


From their website:

What kind of beer do you serve?
We have an ever shifting beer list of selections that either move us currently or we are simply rekindling a romance with. While it seems dizzying to select what to serve in such an overcrowded market we tend to stick with great beer made by even better people. We try desperately to stay away from trends, but revel in relying on craftsmanship and good business practices to help us make our decisions. While rare beer is a lot of fun to serve and drink we tend to pour the most sought after offerings on a Monday afternoon as opposed to squirreling away one keg and centering a whole event around it. No, quite frankly we would rather be good hosts and allow our guests to sit back, relax, and enjoy their beer unmolested by the hordes.

What if I hate beer? Am I still allowed in?
We offer wine by the glass and by the bottle. No fancy foolery, it’s a wine list Jonathan Richman would approve: accessible, and meant to be enjoyed, not dicussed. We also have a full bar.

How do I get to the Memphis Taproom?
You can find us at the intersection of Memphis Street and E. Cumberland Street on the border of the Port Richmond and Fishtown neighborhoods of Philly, in the Kensington section of the city.
