One year ago, on November 8, 2013, current owners Michael Strauss and Pete Fry took over ownership of Taproom on 19th and revamped the South Philadelphia staple into a top destination for local and seasonal upscale pub fare, 14 rotating taps of craft beer (including a cask engine), a classic cocktail menu, a knowledgeable staff and a warm vibe.

“What a long and strange trip is has been,” said Strauss. “Pete and I are grateful for all the people that have supported us. We truly love South Philadelphia and our neighborhood. We are also honored to be part of the city’s thriving food and beer scene.”
