I have been here a few times, but the first was the most memorable for me. Hard cold heavy rain night, staggering from a light meal and pint at Monks all the way over to Eulogy with very poor and often made more complicated directions by asking strangers for clarification. Massive downpour in the spring, really cats and dogs stuff, something they called a Nor'Easter? Anyway, I am from Arizona and anything more than what your windshield washer puts out amazes me, and I stomp through puddles in the alleys and cobblestone streets and finally see the door to Eulogy. The place inside is barely wider than the door, and there are 600 steaming people in there on the first floor. I imagine it was like being in a horse barn during the Middle Ages, everyone was wearing wool and was soaked and speaking in some incomprehensible dialect with a few English words thrown in I recognized.

The casket over the bar freaked me out, was not prepared for that, but somehow pushed my way to the back where I found the bottle beer fridge. Never left that spot again that night until last call, but at least a $100 left my wallet for that fine selection of Belgians. Incredible selection of beers, and that has taken me back there every time I am in town.

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.
