I was so happy to stumble upon Jose Pistola's when taking my wife to see Lion King. I thought to myself "Mexican food AND craft beer, I must be dreaming!" And on the night I happened to be there they had Houblon Chouffee (Belgian IPA) on tap! So awesome!
Anyways... out here in the burbs we have some good spots: Blue Dog (Lansdale and Chalfont), Via Marconi Pizza Pub in Hatfield (last I was there they had Stone RIS, 21st Amendment Hop Crisis, Ballast Point Big Eye and several others on tap), and Muggs in Doylestown.
If you are ever in the SE or Central Bucks County areas, Isaac Newton's in Newtown is a great option for the craft beer lover. They have an ever-changing selection of brews on tap, usually with every style being represented with at least one quality option. They usually also host nights showcasing a particular brewer about once a month.
The Iron Abbey in Horsham is another good bet in this area.
