Clearly catering to the beer aficionado, the beer selection at Eulogy is quite large and well represented with an obvious focus on all things Belgian, to which this establishment deserves credit. Hundreds to choose from couldn’t possibly be a bad dilemma. Beers are presented well in their appropriate glassware and are paired with a menu that favors Belgian fare though is not terribly adventurous. Service varies depending on the person and the night. The bar staff is always highly knowledgeable and quite amicable, but I’ve also encountered wait staff that seem to be ignorant of your presence. Avoid Friday and Saturday nights as this is a very busy part of the city and real estate for your rear end is limited at best. A better experience is had during the week when you can cozy up to the bar and peruse their beer selection. Not a bad place to enjoy a beer and wither away the evening hours, but not my first recommendation in the city.

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 :)
