One of several stops on a Philly crawl, it helps to be in the same neighborhood as Eulogy. The inside was cool, but is not all that different than a lot of brewpubs I have been in recently. The bartender was right on us and served us fairly quickly. It was not too busy, but that is one long bar and most of the business was on it watching an awful Eagles game. I had the Ipa and was not disappointed. My friend had the imp. stout and also found it to his liking. There were 7 beers on tap that I could see and they covered the spectrum of tastes with several other in the works (Rye IPA). The food was limited to appetizers and they were perfect for the beers. Humus and calamari hit the spot. The value, as stated in my other Philly reviews, is rooted in the fact that you are moving in one of the pricey areas in the city and that has to be factored in.

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)
