The Drink Program for Petruce et al


We gave you a look inside Petruce et al earlier this week as they were preparing for tonight’s opening. And now we have Petruce’s opening drink list. A list that is particularly interesting with the dynamic duo of Tim Kweeder and George Costa.

The list includes classic cocktails as well as some interesting “new school” versions as well. A small but interesting wine selection is available by glass and bottle. Beers are available on draft as well as beer and bottle.


Looking for the menu, there’s a pre-opening version on Petruce’s web site.

  • Philly’s Best BYOBs

    Enjoyed the Ponchos’ Lament:

  • Really?

    Weak beer list. I know George is a cocktail man, but this selection sucks…not sure who is asleep at the wheel here…

    • tijuana

      explain. I would prefer more drafts but whatever. A lot of styles are covered, local guys and good nationals. Where was the ball dropped?

      • Really?

        a good beer (or wine) list is like a movie cast…the best ones have established super stars, some up and comers, and some fresh faces. the average non-beer nerd won’t recognize any of these brands, a cast of all off-Broadway talent (except Ballast Point who are top rank). maybe George did this on purpose to sell more cocktails?

        • really? douchechill

          the above is a perfect example of how douchey the food world has become.

          • Really?

            just sharing thoughts. i’m not gonna avoid the establishment based on my dislike for their beer selection…just probably gonna drink wine. i bet more than a few guests looked at these selections with a confused look this weekend.

          • Art from Foobooz

            Do you recognize the wines by name? Or do you pick a style you like? I haven’t had all the beers being offered but plenty of well-regarded brewers and recognizable styles.

          • Really?

            i, and i think most beer fans, either buy by style or try something from a brewery they trust. just don’t think being different for the sake of being different flys anymore…as far as local its only N.Creek (who i hear good things of). Voodoo may be PA but is significantly closer to Cleveland & Buffalo (and Canada for that matter) thank Philly…hardly “local”

          • Art from Foobooz

            Branch out. You won’t be disappointed by N. Creek, Voodoo or Oxbow. And if the Hommelbier is anything like Popering Hommel from Belgium, it’ll be great. This isn’t different for different sake, it’s five beers on tap that’s cover the spectrum of beer.

          • tijuana

            number one, there are a thousand bars in the city that have dogfish head 60 minute, stone arrogant bastard and yards pale ale on draft, how many more do need?
            number 2, ballast point is as relatively unknown to non beer geeks as stillwater, evil twin and alesmith, all of which are boss breweries. Maybe one of the most trusted bar men in the city has a good sense of what will make a good beer list, or not….
            number 3, if you buy by style the styles covered here are
            cream ale
            pale ale
            nut brown
            blonde ale

            the identifiable missing styles are belgian, lager and barleywine, I would say you would have to be a beer nerd ( guilty ) to take those missing 3 as a sign of a shitty beer list. If you are just trying to stir the pot, fine but your argument is chock full of holes.
