So, you've finished the USMLE step 2 CS exam and after 8hrs of seeing pretend patients you don't feel like any more sightseeing.

So you take up on wandering through the city and towards the easternmost part of chestnut what sign do you spot?

"Drink Good Beer ---->"

Celestial, I know.

So I went in and grabbed a table right by the window. it was closed and had some heavy curtains right by it, making the place quite scarcely lit. not very full at 5pm I'll say. Long bar, not too noisy, music was moderate. a stairway leads somewhere. It looks dusty and old but in a comforting sort of way. this place is probably similar to In de Wildeman or maybe Poechenellekelder for a comparison. Very à la Belge.

Was instantly served by the waitress, a nice young girl who devoted her attention essentially to serving me and another couple of folks. she had a friend sit by her and they chatted at times but never in detriment of service. She also knew her menu well and was frank in saying "we really don't have many locals- this is a belgian bar- but this is good...." and gave frank and seemingly knowledgeable advice: she told me to have this or that if I prefer sweeter than bitter, etc.

The menu is beautiful. several pages of a phone book-like menu probably ranging in the 200-300s. Of course mostly belgian but a fair share of local and american crafts pop out of there. They used a rating scale on the menu-chart for each beer on a 1-5 scale so I assumed it was the BA ratings, but I may be wrong.

I don't know if i'm overrating the place. It felt pleasant and adequate, beer focused enough and laid back, relaxed environment to taste beer and to clear my head post-stress. I'll definetly hit it again when back in Philly.

Eulogy was my first foray into the craft beer scene in Philly and let me say if you haven't been you really need to put it on your list.

The beer selection is enormous and well selected they have many, especially many Belgian, beers that are must tries. They also have a pretty varied and long tap list. When I was there years ago I had my first encounter with St. Bernardus and it really opened my eyes.

There food is fairly good as pub grub goes. I remember enjoying a few sandwiches that I had there.

The service has always been good. They did a great job of accommodating us when we had a large party and when I have been there in smaller groups they have always been attentive.

The price depending in the beers can be a tad expensive but they do have several good low budget drinks.

In a nutshell, Eulogy Belgian Tavern's wide variety of beers (and other alcohols) makes this must-stop for those in the Philly. True to the architecture of the state, the bar itself is...cozy. It's split over two floors, and although we brought a large (8+top) and were able to be seated quickly and in comfort.
The drink selections spanned the palate and price range, there's definitely something for everyone, and the food was hearty, and well-prepared. Our server was the low point of our experience, whom I audibly heard curse at our entering (during a non-rush hour...). I'd still go back nonethless!Try the Malheur 12 :)
