Swank, kind of enthusiasts place. I don’t think it’s for the run of the mill beer guy, but that’s also part of the appeal. You can go inside and just enjoy what it’s advertised as a great Belgian style place. It’s amazing. Pricey, but you get what you pay for. The food is amazing, I had a burger w/ Ardenne Ham. It was fantastic. Can find very rare brews.
Nice quaint pub with great beer and great food. I had some sausage and beans while my fiance had mussels. She raved about the food. The beers on tap were a tad pricey, but every one but 3 where from Belgium and were fresh and delicious. The bartender has lots of knowledge of the beers and help pair the beers with the food.
A very crowded restaurant/pub with a good selection of belgians and american beers. Service was pretty slow but fairly knowleadgable. Food was OK, but nothing to fancy if you don’t feel like eating mussels and fries. A very nice bar nonetheless.
nice cozy pub atmosphere more upscale than your standard beer bar. in the nice historic distric. good belgian beer selection. not the best. great servers. belgian fries are just regular fries with mayonaise.

Eulogy is an oddity amongst the trendy bars in old city Philadelphia. The bar downstairs is very crowded and sometimes ther is a long wait for a table on the weekend but the wait is worth it. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. Technically they have a great selection of beer but often they are out of many beers that are listed on their menu. this can become frustrating when you ask for five beers in a row and are told that they don’t have them. They do however, have around twenty beers on tap at all times and the food is excellent.
Pre-dinner visit on a cold November night. Place was fairly empty, which offered us a relaxed environment in which to examine the expansive beer menu plenty of quality Belgians plus a couple other odds and ends on tap, plus pages of Belgian, other European and American craft beers available in bottles. There was a crowd of guys yapping it up in the kitchen right at the end of the cozy bar area, which was a detractor. But the bartender was really friendly, knowledgeable of the beers, and even gave us a list of other places to check out that we may not have otherwise known about. Enjoyed my visit, and definitely worth a stop especially for those who prefer the Belgian varietals.
A nice, rather small 2 story bar in old city philadelphia. Ambiance was pretty cool downstairs, with a stained glass window behind the bar with a chalice in the middle of it- very nice touch. Was a bit crowded but we were able to get a spot at the bar- which would have never happened at Monks considering we were there at 7 pm on a Saturday evening. Service was very good- knowledgable, helpful, and pretty quick. The beer selection while outstanding, is not to the ridiculous level that Monks is. I had a great time here and I am sure to be back sometime in the future.
A bit crowded, a bit overpiced. The service was really good, and the clientele friendly. A HUGE selection of brews. There was the occasional oddball, but the taps were dominated by easily-found varieties. I was a little miffed that the barkeep charged me for the Victory pint glass after I’d talked beer with him and his buddy for an hour, however he was very good about scampering up the stairs to draw beer for me from the other bar when needed.

Just realized that I hadn’t 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 Monk’s. Food is pretty good, the staff is friendly and helpful (unlike Monk’s), 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 can’t find anywhere. Its really easy to get wrapped into conversations with other patrons and exchange rounds all nite. Defiantly worth a trip!!
