Visited this spot during a bachelor party recently. Earlier on and I wasnt the bachelor so memory serves well methinks. Walking in there are several booths and table chair combos and a long rectangular bar. Decor is fairly stereotypical brewpub, dark wood metal and fairly hip actually. I like the aesthetics here, even if it wasnt very "pubby" feeling.

up some stairs is another bar and small dining area. We went upstairs since the DS was still being used for dining mostly, we were on the liquid part of the trip.
Upstairs bar is smaller and maybe 8 stools, 6-8 house beers on tap, honey wheat, irish stout, IPA, Vienna Lager, are the ones I remember. I wont be reviewing any beers from here though I enjoyed the ones I tasted. No food sampling either. Service was very friendly and the bartender even got a flower from the bachelor for her troubles. The upstairs bar is also slate/chalkboard and they let folks draw on teh table later in the evening. I drew some cool pictures. Gone at 2:00 Im sure. The bathrooms were a little weird, all one man/woman stalls. Lights out in some lights out in others, sink didnt work in one that I did go to, so if later in nite, this could be a bit of a confusion point.
Overall, this was a nice visit and I would go here again to try the food and take some notes on the beers. A nice new addition to Philly.

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)
