Any time i think of Triumph brewing company, I thin of this location. They are located in the Old City section of Philadelphia.

The bar itself is a nice looking long wooden bar that has 8 tap placed at different points of the bar. Right behing the bar is a chalkboard that has the current beers on tap listed on there. the bartenders also knows their stuff about each beer they serve.

Above the bar, you can see the fermetting tanks that has the upcoming beers that will be served later.

This is a place that I will visit over and over again.

Above ratings not really true since I couldn't get in. It does not appear to be open. There was an official note on the door. Bartender at another place said he had heard from someone who worked there that they seemed to have been bought out by a new group? Anyhow, may want to call or check for details before planning on an event here.

The wife and I checked in at our hotel in Penn's Landing and walked to Old City just past I-95. Saturday night, all the preppy kids from the suburbs are out in full force in and around the bars in Chestnut street.

I like Triumph so we went in to check out this branch of the chain. Packed- we get carded. All white people drinking god-knows-what. Good service, though, despite the crowds. Efficient enough. We sat at a high-top table in the bar area.

9 taps, but three are gone (Honey, Amber, Bengal IPA). I had the Imperial Stout on nitro, good stuff, love the creaminess, but nothing to write grandma about. The wife went for El Dorado Pale Ale, alright as well.

Other stuff on tap: Scottish Ale, Belgian Strong, ESB on cask. This is a big place, a bit corporate looking and it suffers from the lame crowd. But at least it wasn't super loud or crazy despite being very busy. At $4-$6 per beer, prices are alright.

I won't revisit, I don't think. Too many good bars around (Eulogy across the street, Khyber Pass around the corner)
