From the outside, Earth Bread is nothing fancy. The downstairs bar is somewhat cold in appearance, but when you head up to the main dining area, this place really hits its charm. Almost loft-like, original art hanging on the walls, pew-like bench seats, mismatched steel railings separating the room areas, it had a cool atmosphere and hopping vibe.
Friday night, the place was pretty packed. Nice trendy crowd. There is a smaller upstairs bar too with a couple of couches and pub tables.
Simple menu, which is part of the charm. The main item: artisan pizzas. We shared the traditional and the Mexician (really tasty). The menu at this time was pizza, salads, a handlful of appetizers and deserts from the Night Kitchen. Simple and works well, don't expect more or you will be disappointed.
4 house beers on tap, their ESB, Mild, Gruit and Porter (a version of the old Heavyweight Brewing standard). You can order 13oz or 20oz glasses as well, which is a good thing. All of the beers are fresh and good, but you won't find any Buds, Coors or other macros.
A good 20 bottled beers and a good 6 or 7 guest taps. Mostly Belgians or locals PA breweries (Weyerbacher, Sly Fox, etc).
A unique dining experience. If you are with anyone who wants a standard macro beer, they won't find anything that pops out at them. They will either need to branch out and try a similiar micro or European version or have a glass of wine!

Fairly unassuming exterior. Upon entering, your a greeted with a staircase to the upstairs bar and dining area or an entry way to the main floor. The main downstairs has a bar with some hightop seating around the perimeter and a big brick and stone pizza oven in the rear corner. Upstairs has another small bar and significantly more seating. Overall vibe is okay, lots of recycled and reclaimed wood and industrial scraps, local art hangs on the walls.
Only 4 of their house beers available, none ever repeated. Four feels like too little for frequent visits and long drinking sessions. A dozen or so guest taps also available, mostly local or regional with a few larger domestic craft offerings. Most house beers showcased a nice cereal grain quality, but hops were lacking.
After visiting American Flatbread in Burlington, VT, we were excited to visit a place inspired by there. Flatbreads are good with unique combinations of minimal ingredients on most. Some were too cheesy and bready and lacking in particular ingredients to get all the subtle nuances of flavor. The crusts are good, but a little thicker than I prefer for a flatbread.
Service friendly and knowledgeable and the prices were okay. If it wasn't for the location and limited house taps, id be back more frequently.

Not your typical brewery or beer bar, but Tom(owner/brewer) knows his beer and is a top notch brewer. If i was reviewing just Tom's beer this review would be an A+
Chances are you won't find the same (in house) beer here on a recurring basis but you will find something you like. Most offerings tend to be on and then gone, but there is a good selection of in house brewed beers along with "guest" taps and bottles
No tv's and could use some more bar seating (has a second bar, but it is not always open and is on the second floor away from the other) Food is basically just flat bread and on the pricier side for the size. Would be nice to see a more expanded menu on the food side. No daytime hours during the week is disappointing as it would be a great place for lunch.

A great neighborhood brewpub. They usually only have 3 of their own beers on tap, but the rotate them quickly so there's always something new. I get the impression they don't repeat much. Guest taps are quality craft beers. On my two visits, their IPA, Kolsch, and Berlinerweisse were all great.
Service was excellent on one trip, 'merely' good on the other. The seed pizza is creative and delicious. Non-flatbread food is okay, but I'd stick with the flatbreads. Looks to be family friendly and solo friendly - a good casual option for any occasion.

In town on business and had some time to kill Sunday so I stopped by for dinner. Got there before they opened, but they opened the doors promptly at 4:30pm. Kitchen didn't open until 5:00pm, but that was ok I was not in a hurry and was willing (twist my arm) to have a few of their beers first. Liked the "Deter" amber lager the best of all their beers. The handpulled 1492 pale ale had a phenolic funk too it (maybe the beer engine was not clean). Ended up at the bartenders recommendation having the fresh mozzarella salad (cheese made fresh daily) and a small flatbread, perfect amount of food. It was slow at the bar so the service was attentive. Did notice a lot of couples with kids heading to the upstairs seating area. List of "guest" beers was impressive, although already having consumed their 5 offerings, only tried the Mahr Hell Lager (OMG was it good). Nice place, will be back if I am ever in Philly again.
