Visited on 2/23/08 with my wife, brewslut, during a beer outing to Philly.
This place is one of the more architecturally unique and aesthetically interesting brewpubs I've visited in my travels thus far. Triumph Philly boasts a long, wooden bar with about twenty comfortable, padded stools. You'll find lots of wood decor with a brick backsplash behind the bar with several wine racks. The ceiling is pretty high and you can view the seating on the second floor between the rustic iron beams. The bathrooms are unisex and feature individual private compartments, each with its own toilet, sink and mirror. I was also happy to find out that Triumph is non-smoking.
We sat at the bar and received prompt, friendly service. There was a beer menu right at our seat, as well as behind the bar on a large chalkboard. We opted to split the sampler, which featured all eight of their offerings for $8. The selection was quite varied, with the following brews on tap during our visit: honey wheat, kellerbier, amber, schwarzbier, scotch ale, roggenbock, IPA and an imperial stout. Quite a diverse line-up, if I must say so.
We found all of the beers to be solid and well-done, with my favorites being the kellerbier and schwarzbier, both of which I ordered seperately after the contents of the sampler were depleted. We didn't order any food during our visit, so I can't comment on the food. But from what I saw, the food looked and smelled outstanding. The presentation of the menu items were extremely well-done and pretty classy, which was nice to see.
Overall, we had a great experience here. Servers were talkative and jovial, and the selection was solid and diverse. We'll be back next time we're in Philly.
