Was showing some friends from San Diego around Independence Hall, Liberty Bell, etc. On the way back from the Betsy Ross house I took them to Eulogy, a place I've wanted to try for quite sometime.

It was around 4 in the afternoon on a Tuesday when we arrived. The bar was just about full, there were some tables open though. Upstairs didn't appear to be open and it looked like they had a different tap list up there.

First thought was how tiny it was. Second was how hot it was. It was in the 80's outside and it felt like a little hotter inside. The window fridge I was sitting in front of was blowing hot air out the bottom of it.

The first two beers I asked for were unavailable. One being Russian River Damnation. The bartender suggested Lost Abbey Inferno instead. I had a bottle sitting at home (gift from my San Diego friends) so I went for the Jolly Pumpkin La Roja (15.99) which was good.

I chatted it up with the bartender a bit. He seemed to be really knowledgeable of all the beers. Wouldn't be surprised if he frequents this site.

Didn't eat, but it smelled very good. They had a very large selection of beers. Didn't seem as big as Monks, but I may be wrong.

Would definitely go back here again, but I'd make sure to keep away from the busy times since it would most likely be tight fit. Also, Triumph brewpub is across the street which is a plus.

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.
