This low-key, living room-like locale is the rare craft bar that isn’t overrun with odious beer dorks. (Thank its undercover coordinates, cloistered above a West Philly Ethiopian restaurant, for that.) Lower traffic translates to better chances at landing limited-edition bottles, which appear or disappear at the whim of management.
