I've been coming to the Hulmeville for a while now (and always pass by it back when it was Marek's Cafe), and I can tell you, there are some great microbrew here. The micros do get changed a lot, so you can get a choice of what is popular in beers nowadays. you also have the standard beers (Miller Lite, Coors Light, Yuengling Lager, Budweiser) as well.
The food is the standard bar food, which makes it even better. The staff also knows everything about the beers that are served.
There is not a whole lot of parking, but that due to the fact of when The Hulmeville was first built, back in 1803 by John Hulme Jr.

The Hulmeville is my favorite bar in Bucks County. They have about 20 taps, with 15-18 devoted to craft beer. Selection is unbeatable-I've had Russian River(Pliny+), Hill Farmstead, Ballast Point, Cigar City, Deschutes- the list is endless. When you're seated at the bar you're given a full Beer Menu for draft and bottles with descriptions/ABV/glassware for each beer.Prices are pretty consistent at $4.75/pint- can range about a $1 depending on the beer. Mondays are $1.25 off all craft beers.They also do growler fills of almost everything. I've eaten a few times, only tried burger & fry type stuff but food is solid and reasonably priced. Service has always been great. They also have a website that is updated daily with their current tap list, as well as an email list & Twitter account for daily updates. Can't recommend this place enough. One drawback is there is very little parking- often have to park on street or about a block away. Not a big deal but just a heads up.
EDIT: Wanted to update to reflect that as of Oct 2013, the Hulmeville is now smoke-free.

I am a smoker so the fact that I can smoke at the bar is a plus for me.
I have been to this place more times than I can remember over the last 10+ years. There's only been a handful of bartenders over the years and they are all very pleasant and knowledgeable. A couple of them are even home brewers with above average of knowledge of craft beers.
I find that Monday nights are sometimes the best nights with their specials on craft beers. Weekends are usually the mix of patrons but don't let that stop you.
I feel their food is above average for a bar. The wings and cheesesteaks are some of the best in the Philly area.
The beer selection at The Hulmeville Inn cannot be summed up in one visit. The taps rotate constantly. If the owner happens to be around, he is usually talking to a patron as if they were a close friend. He loves to talk beer and is always open to suggestions for beer to put on tap. There's almost always some brewery or special beer event planned.
The owner hosts a monthly meeting of the local home brew club as well.
If you don't like the smoke, go for lunch when it's not as crowded.

Atmosphere: Ranging from younger crowds playing pop on the jukebox --- all the way over to old rednecks slappin knees playin country. So... it's iffy sometimes.
Beer quality has never been in question, lines appear to be cleaned, they even innovate with pumping beer through hops sometimes!
Service is great, Dillon is one of my favorite bartenders.
Selection of Imperial Stouts and Quality IPAs can lack at times, but they have a very diverse selection and the owner is dedicated to keep bringing in new beers.
Food is standard bar food, but it's tasty, made quickly, and inexpensive.
Overall, cheap, quality beer, food, and sometimes, the company can be cheap. Also, sometimes it's hard to get a place to sit!

One of the reasons why I purchased my current home was its proximity to the Hulmeville Inn. This bar is easily the best beer bar in Bucks County. Amazing selection of bottled beer, first class revolving draught beer, and you can still get a $2.50 Lager. The regular bar tenders are excellent, but sometimes their substitutes are not as versed in beer. New menu is fantastic; I love the Brisket, and the deep-fried green beans. Two pool tables and dart board. My only complaint is that it is a smoking establishment.

Great looking bar and I love the beer bottle xmas tree. Enough TV's Nice wood accents. The only drawback is the smoking.
Always friendly service and attentive.
The food is good. But it is basic pub food. Burgers, BLT, Chili, Soup.
The draft beer selection is the best north of Center City. I have had Russian River, Weyebacher 15, Dogfish Head Bitches Brew, Olde School, and Worldwide Stout, etc. Jeff always tries to get the unusual.
Some bottles can be expensive but they are expensive outside the bar.

Good beer selection, whether you are looking for draught or bottle. They have a beer menu available which tells you when the keg was tapped, the name/type and place of origin, alcohol %, and price. The menu is also updated constantly with new arrivals. Food is pretty decent for bar food, especially their sandwich selection. The building has an old colonial look to it, and probably is from that time. I've been there many times and never experienced any "rift raft" causing problems. Definitely a place to check out.
