The Best Bars for Local Taps

Cooper’s Brick Oven Wine Bar
Dock Street’s Bubbly Wit appears in the house sangria-such is this wine bar’s devotion to local breweries. Also look for Sly Fox taps.
4367 Main Street, Manayunk, 215-483-2750,

McGillin’s Old Ale House
The 150-year-old pub’s draft list reads like a who’s who of regional breweries-Flying Fish, Dogfish Head, Yards, Tröegs-not to mention Adamstown-based Stoudt’s, which brews McGillin’s three house beers.
1310 Drury Street, 215-735-5562,

Standard Tap
With its draft-only, local-breweries-only philosophy, the Tap (along with sister bar Johnny Brenda’s) is one of the city’s fiercest proponents of PA, NJ and DE beers.
901 North 2nd Street, 215-238-0630,

Stone Rose Restaurant
All six taps at this congenial Conshy newcomer are of the local variety.
822 Fayette Street, Conshohocken, 484-532-7300,

Swift Half Pub
Selections of PBC, Flying Fish and Sly Fox are regularly on tap at this bar in the Piazza at Schmidts, and there are plenty of local bottles and outdoor seating to boot.
1001 North 2nd Street, 215-923-4600,
