I visited Eulogy with my wife on a Saturday to get some lunch before touring some of the new structures in Independence National Park. Eulogy is located in the Olde City portion of Philadelphia. There are many trendy and some old-line restaurtants within a couple blocks. The historic district is within easy walking distance.
The establishment is small with about a dozen or so bar stools and four or five tables in the bar room. There are two dining areas upstairs, including the now famous coffin room, which has two real coffins in use as tables. We sat at the bar and had an enjoyable visit with Chris, a knowledgeable beer server.
There were about 20 beers on tap. I sampled enough that I can't remember exactly how many. Luckily, we had planned this as a walking day. The bar has a "trilogy" tap, stocked with Interbrew favorites, Hoegarrden, Leffe Brune (sometimes it is the Blonde), and Stella. The main beer engine has an assortment of Belgiums, including Chimay, La Chouffe, Kwak (try the champagne glass), Piraat, Maredsous, and at least two others. There were a couple German beers, including the Ayinger Oktoberfest-Marzen. Finally, there were three or four microbrews such as Arrogant Bastard and Allagash White. They have slightly less than two hundred bottled beers, including many of the Trappists.
The food was very good with a nice selection. We shared a bucket of mussels (two pounds). I had the Andouille Sausage sandwich, and my wife had a raw salmon sandwich that she said was awesome. They also had salads, soups, stews, and some more elaborate entrees. Prices were reasonable.
Everyone is the place is friendly, and the service was quick. It was not real crowded, which helps. It's the reason that I end up here now instead of Monk's, which tends to be crowded and hurried at all times.

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.
