BOP Spotlight: Beer Bar

The Taproom is a welcoming island of excellent beer, great food and good times in a sea of bare-bones South Philly watering holes. Thirteen taps and more than 60 bottles offer a rotating hit parade of local brews, like Sly Fox's Saison Vos, and international icons, like Westmalle Trappist Tripel, tempting even cheap lager junkies to turn to premium ales in record numbers. (We love SPT's jukebox, too — see Best of Philly 2006 Jukebox for more.) 1509 Mifflin Street, Philadelphia, 215-271-7787;
