vibe: 4 | quality: 4.5 | service: 4 | selection: 4.5 | food: 5

Atmosphere: The atmosphere fits well with Princeton. It feels like a cool place to be. A little dark in there, but you can still clearly see your beer to accurately review the color. A little cramped due to it being narrow. Feels like a good place to get beer.

Quality: Outstanding. High quality food, high quality beer, high quality service, what more could you ask for?

Service: Very good, the server comes around often enough, but isn't asking if you need something every 5 seconds.

Selection: Good with what I expect from a brew pub. They have 7 beers available, which should be enough to please anybody. There are 2 to 3 beers that are always there, the Honey Blonde, the Amber Ale, and usually the Bengal Gold IPA (this may get rotated with other IPAs). They have 2 more rotating regular taps with some good stuff out of the ordinary. There is one rotating Nitro-tap with some kind of stout, which the Irish stout is seen most often. The seventh beer is a rotating cask on hand pump which is usually the most unusual. So everybody should be happy with the beer, and if you really can't decide, you can get a sampler. Food selection is good too, a decent sized menu, but not too extensive.

Food: Excellent high quality gourmet food. The Triumph Burger is the best burger I've ever had. If you're looking for regular entrees, there is a decent selection that isn't over involved. Plenty of sandwich/wrap selections, salads, soups, appetizers, and desserts. It is all high quality and delicious.

Value: Not cheap, but still reasonable prices. Sandwiches are about $9-15 and entrees are about $15-30. Appetizers are pretty much less than $10. Beer I'm pretty sure is all $5.50 regardless of what you order (size varies though, all served in proper glasses). Growlers used to be $15 for a new one filled, and $12 for refills, but that has gone up to $17 and $13. Not that big of a deal, and still a reasonable price. They now offer some 750ml bottles, but I didn't get one to go because of the price (don't remember, but it was between $10 and $20).

Overall I love this place, and I haven't gotten to go here as often as I used to. I would highly recommend it if you are in the Princeton area.

I've been going to Triumph for the better part of the last 15 years.

The beer selection hasn't changed much (Bengal Gold, Honey Blonde, Amber Ale, a rotating Stout) and the quality is steadfast.

The food is now geared towards the Princeton U. Hipsters with a more "farm to table" vibe... although I doubt very much of it is sourced locally.

Prices have gone up over the years... mostly as a reflection of the locale.

If hanging out, grabbing an expensive app, and an okay beer is your goal... Triumph-Princeton is your spot.

If you want great beer and locally farmed foods at a bargain of a price... Triumph-New Hope is the better bet.

When in Princeton, this brewery pub is a great watering hole. A pioneer.

Nice architecture, friendly people and staff, high ceilings, pleasant and reasonable food and beer selection. Easy to do small plates as well as dinner. Recommended. Their beers are very good, not great, a bit tame, but their stouts and IPAs rock into the 4+ category.

Try their generous 6 taste sampler flight!
