I used to love Eulogy, then dislike them, now I'm really coming around to liking them again. Always a few interesting taps, plus an expansive bottle selection that I'm told gets turned over weekly. The stained glass behind the bar is a 200 year old window from a Philadelphia church. The food is excellent, you get a very different sort of pommes frites here than at other places. These are much thicker. The sauces served with them are awesome. The dijon mussels are incredible and at a better price than some other places in town. The crispy crab is cool to look at and damn tasty as well.

It's usually pretty full, which can make it harder to get a seat, but it's hard to fault them for that. The service can be brusque at times but has usually been pretty helpful. Prices are a bit on the high side, but it's Center City, get used to it, they're high everywhere.

Pubcrawl notes: Right around the khorner is the Khyber. Brownies is a couple of doors down from that. A block or so from there is Sugar Mom's. Wild, unfounded rumor has it that Triumph is opening a brewpub at Chestnut and Front, keep your ears open.

About as good as it gets...for example: several days post BCBS craziness, they were still selling bottles of both the original and barley wine to bar customers for enjoyment on-site or to-go.

Their rotating tap list is what makes this place awesome - just a great mix of beers from all over the world (with an expected focus on Belgian beers). Their bottle list is also the stuff dreams are made of - Cantillon is often on the list (for a price, but hey, it's an option).

All of the staff are super knowledgeable and actually love their craft.

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 :)
