Brendan Hartranft and Leigh Maida - who have worked the outskirts of town with West Philly's Local 44, Kensington's Memphis Taproom, and Grays Ferry's Resurrection Ale House - are heading into Center City.

With Local 44 partner Brendan Kelly, they have inked the lease at 216 S. 11th St. - which was Doc Watson's for many years and later (for five minutes each) Blue Bear Tavern, The Boilermaker and The Butcher & The Brewer.

"We always bring our 'A game,'" she told me. "Now we really have to."

Maida said they hoped to deliver the unnamed beer bar before the birth of the couple's second child in mid-March.
