16. Manayunk Brewing Co.
Address: 4120 Main St.
While young post-grad douchers frequent most of the bars on Manayunk's main drag, their older siblings can be seen at this brew pub. This is where you go when Nickelback gets too loud, when it's time to mel-bro out with some Jimmy Buffett or late-period Bruce Springsteen ("The Rising is such a good record for relaxing.") A former employee offered the following: “There's always a group of power suits who act like they just had the roughest day in the office and it's all they could do to get to the brew pub to drink their strain away.” [S]he also informed us that the MBC boasts an in-house magician. That is not a typo or a mistake. Well, it is a mistake, just not on our part.
