Dock Street Brewing Co. is located in an old firehouse right around University City, and it has some of the best personal pies in the area, as well as a pretty big bar food menu and a rotating tap list. Come here during the summer and post up at one of their outdoor tables before bar-hopping to a bunch of spots that clear out as soon as classes end for the year.
