Philadelphia was the brewing hub of the American Colonies. That tradition is carried on at Brownie’s Irish Pub, which has, perhaps, the city's freshest pint.

This is a great little irish pub except for that they still allow smoking inside. I would come back and spend more time at this little dive if it wasn't for the smoking. I believe it is also the oldest Irish pub in the city, country? I don't know, but the drinks were stiff and the bartender was friendly.

We stopped by this Irish Pub but could hardly get in the door. The smell of smoke is ver strong and we had to leave just based on this.

Popped in when other neighborhood establishments filled up with children. Thankfully children are not allowed in this old-school Irish pub, where smoking is allowed and there are ashtrays in the bathrooms. Good beer selection and pleasant, effective, non-intrusive service. A treat and glad we found it.

This pub has a great beer selection and even better service. The crowd is always friendly and thirsty!!! Not a huge place but it serves its purpose.
