I had been meaning to make it to Eulogy for a couple years now and finally made it in this past weekend. It was bright and sunny outside, but dim and cool inside Eulogy (a little too dim). In the late afternoon/early evening on a Friday, there was a good sized crowd on the first floor. They have a second floor as other reviews mentioned below, but I did not make it up there. The beer list includes 15 taps downstairs, 6 taps upstairs and a bottle list that I believe is north of 100 selections. They seem to always have Hoegaarden, Rodenbach, Leffe, Stella and Kwak on tap and rotate the others. My experience was "the others" are a couple more beers from Belgium and then a couple belgian style beers from U.S. brewers. I was lucky enough to come in when they had Russian River Damnation golden ale on draft. And a couple months back, they were pouring Brooklyn Savoir Faire. Long review short, Eulogy is a great beer bar with an informed and friendly staff. I place it as one of the must stop beer bars in Philadelphia.

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.
