Anxiously awaited the opening of Eulogy which, given that it was a Monday (last week), didn't open 'til 5. Once it did, we opened the joint. Can't say I was dissappointed. It's a toss up as to wether Eulogy or Monks ranks above the other. Monks claims 200 bottles in their "beer bible" and a dozen or so taps while Eulogy professes 300 bottles and 21 taps. Nevertheless, Eulogy is an iteresting and special place. Located in a historic and narrow brick structure, the bar is immediately to your left as you enter and very cramped (see "Monks"). Regardless, the tap selection was splendid and the bottle list special indeed. We were there for quite a while and ordered a number of rounds. I'm somewhat ashamed to say that time (albeit only one week hence) and perhaps the experience itself has made the memory fade, but I do recall ending with two Avery Salvation bombers. 'Nough said. We ended up ordering frittes which were quite good. I enjoyed the service and the friendliness of the bar keep. Didn't like the barstools so much after sitting on what were like mini-recliners (I'm embellising somewhat here) across the street at Triumph. One caveat to this glowing review is you will end up with a somewhat nominal selection of proper glassware here and at Monks. I say this since some of our rounds were served in small tulip glasses though my colleague enjoyed one round in a particularly exquisite Grottenbier goblet, but only after first receiving the puny tulip and asking for the goblet. Nevertheless, the Bottom line is if its top quality micro and Belgian in particular that you seek, you cannot miss with Eulogy (or Monks).

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 :)
