Was showing some friends from San Diego around Independence Hall, Liberty Bell, etc. On the way back from the Betsy Ross house I took them to Eulogy, a place I've wanted to try for quite sometime.

It was around 4 in the afternoon on a Tuesday when we arrived. The bar was just about full, there were some tables open though. Upstairs didn't appear to be open and it looked like they had a different tap list up there.

First thought was how tiny it was. Second was how hot it was. It was in the 80's outside and it felt like a little hotter inside. The window fridge I was sitting in front of was blowing hot air out the bottom of it.

The first two beers I asked for were unavailable. One being Russian River Damnation. The bartender suggested Lost Abbey Inferno instead. I had a bottle sitting at home (gift from my San Diego friends) so I went for the Jolly Pumpkin La Roja (15.99) which was good.

I chatted it up with the bartender a bit. He seemed to be really knowledgeable of all the beers. Wouldn't be surprised if he frequents this site.

Didn't eat, but it smelled very good. They had a very large selection of beers. Didn't seem as big as Monks, but I may be wrong.

Would definitely go back here again, but I'd make sure to keep away from the busy times since it would most likely be tight fit. Also, Triumph brewpub is across the street which is a plus.

A lot like it's stablemate, Bierstube, this place is pretty noisy and draws a young (and on Saturday nights, wasted) crowd. Definitely a place devoted to beer but not really a Belgian beer standout. Head to Monk's.

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 :)
