Stopped by on a Sunday afternoon during the Phila. Marathon and found 5 seats at the bar for my crew. The bar is cool with a lot of Euro beer signs and touches that would remind one of a trip to the region. The bartender (Dave-? sorry, I forgot) was cool; right on us with menus and helpful suggestions based on our tastes. Good selection of beers on tap; the menu I received had some beers that were out, but I still had many great choices to look at. I did not get much to eat, did have the fries with a spicy sauce that I enjoyed. The beers were not cheap, but the value is having beers that I do not normally have a chance to try. I enjoyed visiting here and would like to swing by again next time I do a crawl.

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.
