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.

One of the more established and long running places in Old City. This place was hip before the hipsters came into town. Great Imports, can get crowded quick, worth a stop.

Overwhelming bottle list, impressive taps, Belgian food specialties. Dark and mysterious atmosphere adds to the vibe. When in Philly, a must stop, right in the heart of town.

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.
