Beer fans: Zot to get new life

To those who mourned the loss of Zot in Society Hill, there's hope and hops.

Bruce Nichols of Museum Catering, a founder of Philly Beer Week, is taking over the place (122 Lombard St.) with a beer-focused restaurant/bar called The Headhouse. (Pun! It's off Head House Square.)

He's looking at early March, in a partnership with landlord Madame Saito Ai.

Nichols also will run his catering commissary from the building after five years in Manayunk.

Menu will be global comfort food. He has 20 taps on two floors and promises many brews by the bottle.
