Bottle Bar East, the long-awaited bar and beer-to-go joint on Frankford Ave., opened to the public Friday. The self-appointed “community of beer enthusiasts and imbibers” offers a deep, deep stock of bottled and canned craft beers (they claim the largest in the area) from all over the world, as well as a six-tap draught system for on-site drinking, and growler fill-ups. Upstairs on the new spot’s mezzanine (we’re pretty sure this is the first time this word has been employed in Fishtown) there’s also darts and a Foosball table. Keep an ear out for in-store beer events, and brewery field trips to come. [Bottle Bar East/Facebook]
