Attention all beer fanatics: We’ve found your new happy place. On New Year’s Eve, Philadelphia-based beer bar City Tap House softly opened its doors in Fort Point—a neighborhood that’s quickly becoming a haven for craft-beer buffs (see: CBC and Trillium). With a 60-tap draft system, three nitro offerings, and a bottle-and-can lineup of 40 different brews, their selection of pours promises to be wide, varied, and always-dynamic: The gastropub reserves half its list for seasonal specialties, limited barrel runs, collaborations, and new releases. As for those looking to imbibe something a little stronger, a full line of spirits with an assembly of signature cocktails and a focus on sophisticated brown liquors is available. Better yet? There’s something for the foodies, too. Dishes like Sriracha-roasted cauliflower, wood-fired pizzas, and maple-brined pork chops make up a menu of classic American pub fare with an elevated twist. Oh, and lest that’s all not enough—come spring, you can expect to find a seasonal patio laced with fire pits.
Location: 10 Boston Wharf Road, at the corner of Congress Street
