Just realized that I hadnít rated these guys. Nice place with a good selection of Belgians and a few good American micros on draft, plus a load of good bottles. As far as selection goes, its good but not quite Monkís. Food is pretty good, the staff is friendly and helpful (unlike Monkís), and its Old City location is rather nice, especially since the new Triumph brewpub is right across the street. Worth the trip for locals and visitors to Philly alike.

This is an exellent bar and is well worth the trip. The environment is perfect for old city in Philadelphia. This is a small bar with lots of character and full of employees who really know what their talking about. Lighting is dark, and set up is inviting.
Eulogy has a top notch beer and wine selection with excellent Belgian style food as well. Feel free to ask the bartenders what would go with your meal and be prepared for an excellent recommendation.
Be prepared to drop a average to large amount of money on a trip here if your a beer snob, or just want to experience items you canít find anywhere. Its really easy to get wrapped into conversations with other patrons and exchange rounds all nite. Defiantly worth a trip!!

This place is AWESOME!!! the best bar Iíve ever been to in philadelphia. the upstairs bar was closed and kind of grubby looking so I canít comment on that. Yes it was busy and hard to find a place to stand and sit as some of the negative comments before me have suggested but this place is awesome. the beer selection - 100s of bottles and like 15 or so awesome beers on tap served in beautiful glasses, i.e. snifters. bartender was friendly and knowledgeable and all the beers were fantastic. me and my possee only planned to stay for one round. we ordered 3 different beers and sort of passed them around but the beers were so good we stayed for a second round. the bar is just a narrow rectangle one-room with stools at the long bar and a few tall tables with tall stools along the wall and windowfront. its in a great location of the city, near the old town tourist attractions, i.e. independence hall and the liberty bell and around great restaurants. beers on tap were delirium, piraat, allagash, lots of leffe, the eulogy specials, la chouffe. we really enjoyed ourselves and I know you will too. go for a way to chill for a good hour or two in the middle of your touring or to start off your evening. cheers!

Super packed, no room to sit downstairs, and no real standing room downstairs so I headed upstairs where a few seats at the bar were available. Trendy type of crowd, bartender was definitely enthusiastic about beer and fairly knowledgable. Fairly pricy, good selection, particularly of the Belgians. Did not eat, but the food I saw looked good, and definitely smelled good. Iíd return.

Over 300 beers and everything I asked for was in stock and perfect. Most knowlegble bartenders I ever met in all my beer travels. Food was fantastic, we started at Eulogy, went to another Belgian joint and returned to Eulogy which is by far the best in Philadelphia

really cramped but a pretty sweet environment. Thereís a table on the second floor that that has a glass top with a skeleton under it. Beer prices are exorbitant. Selection is good, but nothing that you cant find at, say, the Foodery. At least for me, all of these beers can be found in Chicago for at least 50% of the price. The only beers that werenít a rip were...i guess only arrogant bastard on tap for $4.99. Service was respectable, but i didnít test their knowledge.

Disenchanted, unaffected snobish hipster servers, greqt beers selection ( I did not run into te same problem as ejcat, but can see how this would happen. Thereís only so much room in an Old City Philadelphia place like this, so the 1000 beers they advertise is a stretch. With this said, the selction of beers from around the world (as long as they are in stock) is what will bring me nback here. I hope there is a better connect between the ownership/advertising and the service staff.

I have been here numerous times and the running joke is that they never have the beers i ask for off the list. i go through about 5 selections before they get something i ask for. i donít eat here either because the first time i did the mussels werenít cooked and it was a big mess. they are always touting how great they are but i have yet to be impressed.

I met up with Phillymonksbeer and Whaleman for a few beers. Very nice selection of Belgians and Domestic Micros. The beer list is not always current, so be sure to have a second choice in the queue. The place is very nice, somewhat upscale and trendy. There are two levels, each with different beers on Tap. Rather small, but not as tight as Monkís Cafe. I stayed downstairs and drank at the bar. The bartender was very nice, and the beers were served in the proper glass. I did not try the food, but it looked and smelled great. Another plus is that they have one of beer coolers outside the bar, so you can browse for beers, as oppposed to poking your head over the bar. As others said, everything listed is not always available, but I expect that in beer bars with this type of selection. Overall, I enjoyed my visit. I prefer this place over Monkís Cafe for two reasons. One, itís not as packed. Two, better service at the bar. Monkís has the edge for rarities.

Visited April 15 2006, a hopping Saturday night. No room on the 2nd floor, and thus no Prima Pils on tap for me, sigh....but that was of little consequence, as the service, atmosphere and selection were all top-notch. Half a dozen beers I hadnít had (rare for me), very cool and knowldedgeable bartenders, and surprisingly relaxed given the business level. Iím not going to rate the food as I only had fries, but they were among the best Iíve had. Top recommendation, wish Iíd visited Monks on this trip for a direct comparison but I suspect this would hold its own.
