Hint: it’s beer. Must be why they’re acting all friendly.
Get ready to welcome City Tap House, a Philadelphia import with 40 taps to its name, opening Monday in the space of the short-lived 901.
This place isn’t far from the Verizon Center, which is convenient now that the Wizards’ season is getting interesting. And the place takes on a bit of a ski-lodge vibe—barn wood from Lancaster County, stone walls, built-in fireplaces behind the bar—which is convenient now that winter’s about here.
Head for the elevated lounge on the far side of the bar, and start on some four-ounce (or larger) tastes of some familiar beers (Sierra Nevada) and less familiar beers (Pennsylvania’s Yards Brewing). And while you’re at it, maybe some shishito peppers and double-smoked-bacon popcorn.
Finally, you’ll mosey over to the game. But you’ll keep thinking about that mysterious Aventinus Weizen-Eisbock tap handle. You’ll even Google Aventinus Weizen-Eisbock at halftime. So you’ll return for some of that, and newly hungry for beer-friendly dishes like honey goat-cheese pizza and rabbit Bolognese.
Just tell everyone the 76ers won.
