Live music on a Tuesday afteroon, whoa. I guess it was Philly beer week after all. The beers were OK, service was fine. Funky metal gargoyles, donít forget to look up.

My wife and I walked across the street from Eulogy to try a beer here on a chilly evening. Iíd been to the Princeton brewpub a couple times and had enjoyed it. Unfortunately I was immediately put off by the environment of this place. It comes across as a yuppie happy hour joint, with low light and reflective surfaces, and a crowd dominated by after-work 20-somethings. The impressive brewhouse looms on the level above the bar, but otherwise Iíd never have pegged this as a brewpub in a blind walk-in. We shared two pints which were good enough. We were headed to the Standard Tap for dinner, so we didnít even look at the menu. Not a fan of the modern decor but otherwise this was a decent enough place worth the stop. (Brewery #453, 11/8/2007)

Iíd been to Triumph in New Hope 5 years ago and was really looking forward to renewing acquaintance with Triumphís beers, especially their fine lagers. Well the pils and dunkel were nice enough, perhaps less than I hoped, but certainly above average. On the other hand, Iím not a big fan of the place. Itís actually relatively pretty and surprisingly big considering the almost separated restaurant area. We hung at the bar though and they had this open for all talent show going on that was pretty bad. Whatís with signing the national anthem in a bar? Of course, the singerís (poor) prestation was followed by a standing ovation. The bar section is well decorated, but very dark and kinda yawny. Other patrons were surprisingly very young on average, some of questionable age actually. Iím still quite young myself, but felt I did not fit. Itís too trendy I suppose. Fortunately, the beer is good, so I recommend popping in anyway, but I could never spend an evening here.

Very fun place in Philly with live bands some nights, a very modern interior, wide bar, and lots of open space. The beer here is wildly underrated and consistently some the best beers Iíve had from a brewpub that doesnít bottle or attempts to enter into the beer geek hype world. Lots of solid German and Czech styles. Food has been very good both times Iíve been here. Prices are very reasonable. Service is quick. Probably my favorite beer bar in Philly besides Monks Cafe, and Triumph is in a much better location so easier to drag your friends along with you over here.

Our trip here was one of the worst brewpub experiences Iíve ever had... but I canít even say I was pissed because it was so bad that it almost descended into satire. Loud obnoxious music, a shitty dj playing shittier music and more tank top toppling titties than Iíve seen in a brewpub in quite some time... I assume it was the unseasonably warm day that brought out the college aged cleavage. I donít mind looking at some cleavage, but when itís attached to slurring drunken chicks drinking apple-tinis at a brewpub Iím less enamoured with it. The beer itself was a bit of a mixed bag. I ordered a full pint of the Jewish Rye since that stiff is normally incredible, but here it was thin-bodied and lacking in complexity. They did have a few solid takes on other styles however, particularly a Dry Stout. I suspect we just got unlucky with our timing, but man, on this night, this place sucked.

Triumph Philly... A nice brewpub on two floors with a modern feel, TV, wooden feel. Decent food menu with upscale pub menu. Had the poor boy with kielbasa. Beer is decent. Sampler is 12$ for 8 4 on. sample. OK.

I preferred their dark beers, particularly the Imperial Pumpkin Stout. Atmosphere and prices a bit corporate. Food good but overpriced.

Stopped here for a few beers on a Friday night. Atmosphere: At first it was ok. But then a bunch of youngins (they were clearly under 21) came in and were ordering a "shot with a chaser" and "your lightest beer." And there was screeching and screaming and crowdedness. That detracted from the experience. At the end of the night there was a live DJ and the music was pretty good. So it was a little more boisterous atmosphere than I prefer in a good beer bar. Quality: Beers were quite good, definitely an above average brewery. Service: Service was pretty good, especially for a Friday night. I have no complaints. Selection: They had 8 beers on tap with a good variety of styles Food: Small portions for slightly expensive prices. I got the mushroom ravioli but it was just ok. Value: Good value for the beer (I think it was $4-5 per pint), but the food was overpriced. Overall: A nice bar and good beer to boot. They had the best rye beer Iíve ever had.

Visited this place when I was staying down the street. It was a nice looking brewpub with some fairly interesting beers. The food looked pretty solid, though I didnít try anything. A place Iíd revisit.

Finally stopped by this place while showing some friends around the city. Very trendy decor. Had the sampler which was one of each of their offerings currently on tap. Pretty solid brews top to bottom but the IPA and Keller were the best two, I thought. The food was quite nice- pretzels rocked. The server ws good but a bit of a pusher, which I didnít enjoy too much. Overall it was a fun and tasty experience. Beer was good but not great. Probably not gonna be a regular stop for me but might be a place to show out of towners a good meal.
