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.

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 :)
