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.

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.

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.

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.

This place was really slick and urban, which didn’t make it the most appealing and warm. The bartenders were a little smug, but the food was good. There was quite the selection and range of styles and prices seem fair for the upscale quisine and quantities they were offering. I felt a little out of place and the bar was poorly designed (too high). I had the Duck Confit Nachos, which didn’t have nearly enough cheese. Otherwise, this place wasn’t too bad, but I’d mostly focus on the beers.

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.

Stopped in here on the way to a late night reservation at Morimoto (incredibly good, and worth every penny). The place itself is gorgeous, lovely dark wood, large open spaces, nice modern lighting and fixtures. Of particular note is the bathroom area. Itís a unisex bathroom area, and theyíre all individual little bathrooms like fitting rooms, with individual sinks and such in there as well. Super cool. The beers ranged from drinkable to pretty good, nothing stands out as incredible, just decent brew pub beer. Nothing wrong with that. We ordered three apps to split (one each, split the third). She got the tuna tar-tar, I got risotto cakes (yummy, but the basil sauce was a bit acrid), and we split the mushroom spring rolls. Given how much food we had at Morimoto a scant hour and a half later, it might have been best to skip the apps, but we were hungry and they were really good.

Triumph did an excellent job designing the interior of this place. Two levels with a cool contemporary design and lighting, using rustic materials (iron and rough wood). The rest rooms are very interesting, about a dozen or so private unisex stalls, complete with sink. This location has a separate bar menu in case you want a lighter dinner. Food is excellent, perhaps a little pricey for a brewbub, but this is a more upscale place. The two bartenders were very sociable, which I greatly appreciate because I travel alone on business. I had two beers on my visit, and they were solid. However, I was hoping for something more interesting, like the offerings at Princeton (Coffee Cream Stout, Roggenbach, etc.) They did just open a few weeks earlier, so I suspect that they are going conservative on the beer list. The bartender informed me that each location has itís own brewer, with a head brewer overseeing the entire operation. The great thing about this Old City location is that you are right across the street from Eulogy. If you need a reasonable hotel in the area, I recommend the Comfort Inn on Penns Landing because itís a 10 minute walk to Triump and Eulogy. They also offer a free shuttle if you are lazy.
