Fishtown Brewpub, 1101 Frankford Ave.; 4-7 p.m. Tuesday-Friday
You're headed to the Fillmore or the Punchline and need to eat, have a beer or two, and park once. Bingo. Got your place. Happy hours are also a good deal at Jack Lyons' cozy corner brewpub in Fishtown, which offers 11 of its own beers plus a guest draft or cider. (Enjoy rosé wine? Brewer TJ Kaplan has come up with Brosé, a beer take that melds a classic saison with pilsner and Munich malt.)
Chef Dan “Choux” Clemens and crew turn out elevated food, including a fine burger — Hereford beef, Cooper sharp, roasted tomato mayo, mesclun, and house-made pickles on a toasted brioche bun — that for happy hour is deeply discounted from $13 to just five bucks. Also priced at $5 are two hot dogs, prosciutto flatbread, wings, roasted beet hummus, and Whiz wit fries.
