South Philadelphia Taproom and Brew Beer Boutique are co-owned and located just across the street from each another. SPTR is a craft beer bar, and @Brew is a combination coffee house and craft beer boutique. The neighborhood is rather sparse of hot spots and off the beaten path, so I wouldn't foresee myself walking to this area. However, after hearing enough good things about this duo, I decided to drive over for a visit. Overall, I thought it was worth the trip this binary store/bar.

Brew is both a beer emporium and coffee cafe (Ultimo Coffee Bar), which is rare concept business model. It is not a bar, there are no beers on tap, but beer bottles can be purchased to go, or consumed on the premises. There are 12 refrigerator cases full of national craft beers. It is a good selection, and the staff is friendly. There are several small tables inside and a retractable garage door that opens to sidewalk seating. Large windows create a bright, inviting atmosphere, which is nice for cappuccino and pastries, but detracts from the beer hunter's experience. Unless you're enjoying a coffee stout or a Russian imperial, the overwhelming roasted coffee aroma conflicts on the palate while sampling more subtle craft beers. For this reason, I'm giving a lower than average score for atmosphere. My advice is to drink over at SPTR.
