The beer list will be uniquely different from the lineup found at Tired Hands’ original location, just blocks away on Ardmore Avenue. Brews on tap currently include Shambolic, a dry hopped spelt saison; I’m Sad, an imperial honey coffee porter; and Rutilant, an IPA brewed with a bit of caramel malt and wheat. Fermentaria will also be pouring cold-brewed Awake Minds, its proprietary coffee roast made for them by Philadelphia’s ReAnimator Coffee, as well as house-made soda.
Head chef Bill Braun has crafted a menu of small and large plates, tacos and desserts. Standout menu offerings are sea scallop ceviche with salsa verde and pickled chili; beer-braised lamb shank with Yukon mash, carrots, beets and onions; crispy maitake tacos with chili-braised eggplant and coconut crema; and banana spring rolls with cilantro-lime whipped cream.
Hours are Wednesday through Sunday from noon til midnight. Fermentaria is closed on Tuesdays. Reservations are available online or by calling the restaurant.
