Nodding Head Brewery
Granted, there are other microbreweries around the city, but we will still miss Nodding Hill's diverse selection of beers made in-house. In particular, owner Curt Decker's Ich Bin Ein Berliner Weisse, which has placed a few times in the few World Beer Cup. Luckily, rumor has a re-imagined Nodding Head is opening somewhere in the Philly area in the next year.
Blue Belly BBQ
Despite the pedigree of owner/husband-wife team Gene and Annie Giuffi (who also own nearby pork-centric Cochon) and generally positive reviews, BB BBQ closed this year, taking some drool worthy brisket that we'll definitely miss with it.
