June 2021 Update

With the restrictions lifted by the city, we now offer regular bar seating with limited indoor tables. Outdoor dining and online to-go ordering are here to stay. We have discontinued beer delivery for the time being.

Masks are no longer required for staff or customers – all of our coworkers are fully vaccinated and we are allowing them to choose what makes them most comfortable. For patrons, we strongly recommend masks if unvaccinated.

We are currently still operating under limited hours posted below, with a limited food menu until we’re able to fully staff the kitchen (hopefully sooner than later!)

We appreciate all of the continued support and look forward to getting back to some semblance of normalcy! See you soon.

Much love,
Your 2D Fam

Bancroft Beer

Our daily drinker, named after the street our humble brewery rests on. Brewed with Pilsner and Maris Otter malt. Singularly hopped with Mosaic. Punchy notes of Satsuma orange rind, lychee flesh, and fresh blueberry muffin with a clean and crisp finish. 4.2% abv
Available on draft and 16oz 4-packs

Estimated Antler

Pale ale brewed with Simcoe and then dry hopped with a heap of one of the (if not THE) highest esteemed hop varieties on the block, Nelson Sauvin. It’s been four years since we’ve gotten our hands on this beautiful variety and as usual, it does NOT disappoint. Crisp with a huge bouquet of Sour Diesel infused Sauvignon Blanc layered on a toasty malt base. 5% abv.
Available on draft and in 32 oz crowlers.

Anger Quake

Brewed entirely with Citra, and a dash of rye. New and improved this year with a healthy portion of oat malt for that thicc thicc. Layers upon layers of tropical fruit smoothies, fweaky pineapple punch, and daydreams of citrus sorbet snowball fights. Clean as a whistle, immensely drinkable, and all too frisky at 8.25% abv
Available in 16 oz single cans and 4-packs

Cerveza al Vapor

A fun Mexican dark lager/steam beer mashup. Wort concocted with some toastier malts, brown sugar, and lots of Green Meadow Farm roasted heirloom grits. Then fermented at slightly warmer temperatures with classic Mexican lager yeast. The result is a highly quaffable copper colored beer with both lager and ale traits. Hints of toasted pumpernickel with spring harvest honey, Cheerios, and a dry crisp finish. 4.8% abv.

Bicyle Tour

Dry hopped mix fermentation sour ale brewed entirely with Sabro. Bursting with ripe notes of pink Starburst, fragrant Meyer lemon, wild grown passionfruit, and beachside sunsets with a coconut concoction in hand. A tropical delight at 5.5% abv. 
Available on draft and in 32oz crowlers

Cold Cut

Pils szn is here! A little while back our friends from Double Nickel crossed over the Betsy Ross with a couple sixtels of lager yeast from our brew day in Pennsauken, which we then added to wort concocted with Czech pilsner malt, a dash of German wheat, and a bunch of spicy Tettnang hops. The result is Cold Cut, an über refreshing keller crusher here to slice right through this heat. Crackery malt with layers of straw, herbal spice, and freshly mowed grass. 4.8% abv
Available on draft and in 32oz crowlers

Blond IPA hopped judiciously with Cashmere and NZ Rakau. Notes of white grape juice, lime zest, dried apricot, freshly mixed dough, marihuanas, and Kiwi Sundance. 6% abv

Machete on the Nightstand

Spooky Mild brewed with lactose sugar, 2-row, Vienna, Oat, and Chocolate malts. Fermented with traditional English ale yeast and then conditioned on vanilla, single estate roasted cocoa nibs, and a dash of secret spice. Hauntingly smooth and delicious with eerie notes of booze infused Tootsie Rolls, Ghoulish delights, tricks and treats. 4.5% abv (served on NITRO for onsite consumption).
Available in 16oz 4-packs

The Glass is Always Greener

The bottle conditioned version of our Ghosts of Antiquity. A harvest Grisette of sorts featuring a multi grain base of barley, wheat, and oats. Expanded upon with Estate grown Cascade from our Northern PA outpost, Second District Vineyard, and vintage Styrian Goldings. Fermented with a spicy farmhouse ale yeast that is quickly becoming one of our favorites before dry hopping carefully with East Kent Goldings. In true Saison style, bottle conditioning lends this ale an even drier profile due to refermention in the bottle up to 3 volumes of c02. The result is an extremely bubbly quaffable beer with a dense rocky head, fitting for everyday sipping and special occasions alike. Prickly notes of lemon grass, black pepper, and picnics with freshly baked bread on a verdant countryside. Feel free to leave this one out on a sunny window sill before serving. 750 mL bottle, 5% abv.
Available in 750ml bottles


Vietnamese Coffee Stout – starts with a heavy base of specialty dark malts. Infused twice with classic chicory coffee, and sweetened up with a touch of lactose sugar. To achieve that creamy velvety mouthfeel you’ve come to know and enjoy, each can was dosed with food grade liquid nitrogen. For best results we recommend cracking open and pouring hard down the center of your favorite pint glass or mug to release the nitrogen gas for maximum cascading and that thiccc creamy head. 6% abv
Available in 16 oz single cans and 4-packs


English Style Olde Ale brewed with copious amounts of malty malts and aged for 6 cool months. Deep, dark, and lush with notes of toffee, Black Strap molasses, dried foraged herbs, and faint wisps of the unknown. Originally brewed to celebrate our 4th anniversary. 9.2% abv.
Available on draft and in 32oz crowlers

Uncle Ale

A throwback to classic West Coast IPA’s, ripping with pine resin, some hints of caramel, fresh cut trees, sticky marmalade, and Northern Cali breezes. Wafts of whatever is going on out in the shed during family gatherings. Hopped generously with Simcoe, Amarillo, and Mosaic. Perfect uncle strength at 7% abv. Here’s to all the unsung heroes.

“When the former owner of Nodding Head teams up with a former Dogfish Head brewer, you get some really fantastic beer. Most of it is in classic, non-crazy styles, but with slight variations that make them interesting — this is a brewpub, so all batches are small.” – BillyPenn

“Head brewer Ben Potts’ seasoned background features three local mainstays in Dock Street, Dogfish Head and Tired Hands, so rest assured the beer will be great. The taplist features a diverse blend of mostly sessionable, straightforward and good, honest beers that everyone is sure to enjoy” – Breweries In PA
