The HeadHouse Is Now Open in Society Hill

The craft beer bar features 100 bottles, 20 drafts, and a pub-inspired menu

No need to mourn the end of Philly Beer Week — there’s still craft beer stuff happening left and right. The HeadHouse in Society Hill, which had an under-the-radar opening in the middle of Beer Week, opened its doors on Thursday, June 10. The café — which is owned by Philly Beer Week founder Bruce Nichols and established restaurateur Madame Saito — features more than 100 bottled beers and 20 draught beers, as well as a moderately-priced menu by executive chef Jimmy Chiu, designed to pair with the pints.

The extensive beer list focuses on Philly-area craft brews; beer-based cocktails, sangria on draft, and classic cocktails and wines are also available. Nab a seat at the distressed copper bar, order an unusual pour, and nosh on spicy pork carnitas with pineapple, cilantro, and line or classic beer-battered fish with HeadHouse fries. Dinner and bar menus are served Sunday to Thursday from 5:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m and Friday and Saturday from 5:30 p.m. to 1:00 a.m. The HeadHouse will start serving lunch on Monday, June 21 — it will be served Monday to Saturday from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Sunday brunch starts on June 27 from 11:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Download the current HeadHouse tap list and menu here:
