The interior is functional industrial, with the brewhouse and its inner working visable through much of the bar. The downstairs houses a long bar that covers 75% of the far right wall with seating for 30 or so patrons. Also downstairs is bar and dinning seating for a large amount. Upstairs houses some visable brewing equipment with a small bar and bunch of tables. Exposed iron and wood highlight the decor.

6-8 in house beers are available at any given time covering a wide range of styles... Triumph trumps many local spots by offering more than just a few rotating styles and variants. They host a cask night each week and also occasionally open their taps to some highly saught after guest beers (had Russian River Registration here). Their beers are all generally good to very good, the craftsmanship is top notch and usually its just a style bias that prevents me from enjoying some selections.

Service can be spotty but the staff are always friendly. The food is quite good, not the best bar food in the area, but using standard ingredients, they can craft something for any taste. The prices are generally good, with happy hour being a steal at $3 a pint.

Even though its a chain, it is still probably the best overall brewpub experience within the city limits of Philadelphia.

Above ratings not really true since I couldn't get in. It does not appear to be open. There was an official note on the door. Bartender at another place said he had heard from someone who worked there that they seemed to have been bought out by a new group? Anyhow, may want to call or check for details before planning on an event here.

The wife and I checked in at our hotel in Penn's Landing and walked to Old City just past I-95. Saturday night, all the preppy kids from the suburbs are out in full force in and around the bars in Chestnut street.

I like Triumph so we went in to check out this branch of the chain. Packed- we get carded. All white people drinking god-knows-what. Good service, though, despite the crowds. Efficient enough. We sat at a high-top table in the bar area.

9 taps, but three are gone (Honey, Amber, Bengal IPA). I had the Imperial Stout on nitro, good stuff, love the creaminess, but nothing to write grandma about. The wife went for El Dorado Pale Ale, alright as well.

Other stuff on tap: Scottish Ale, Belgian Strong, ESB on cask. This is a big place, a bit corporate looking and it suffers from the lame crowd. But at least it wasn't super loud or crazy despite being very busy. At $4-$6 per beer, prices are alright.

I won't revisit, I don't think. Too many good bars around (Eulogy across the street, Khyber Pass around the corner)
