Legendary meat purveyor Pat LaFrieda crafts a custom grind just for The Pour House. Stationed just a few hours from Exton in North Bergen, New Jersey, the Pat LaFrieda company ships out the freshly ground dry-aged sirloin and, before long, The Pour House chefs have it in-hand. They mold it into several popular burgers, including the popular Pour House Deluxe. The Second Coming burger, however, has been crowned the favorite among Philly-area eaters. Chefs load gruyere, tomatoes, and roasted garlic aioli atop the carefully crafted patty, then add a pile of shoestring fries and a pickle to the side.
The hefty burger epitomizes the American pub fare that chefs create at Exton's The Pour House, which would be worth a visit all on its own, according to regulars. Yet the food served here isn't the main draw at all; it's the impressive collection of beers on tap and by the bottle that bring patrons from near and far. The draft beers change regularly, but always incorporate local brews from companies such as Victory Brewing and Brew Works, in addition to craft breweries around the country. Then there's the list of bottles, which encompasses a whopping 105 options from all over the world and ranges from heavy stouts to organic ciders.
