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, don’t forget to look up.

My wife and I walked across the street from Eulogy to try a beer here on a chilly evening. I’d 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 I’d 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 didn’t 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)

I’d been to Triumph in New Hope 5 years ago and was really looking forward to renewing acquaintance with Triumph’s 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, I’m not a big fan of the place. It’s 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. What’s with signing the national anthem in a bar? Of course, the singer’s (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. I’m still quite young myself, but felt I did not fit. It’s 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 I’ve had from a brewpub that doesn’t 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 I’ve 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.

Located in the center of Philadelphia. Very modern furniture and long dark bar. Beer were mediocre and did not feel a strong beer culture.

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.

Our trip here was one of the worst brewpub experiences I’ve ever had... but I can’t 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 I’ve seen in a brewpub in quite some time... I assume it was the unseasonably warm day that brought out the college aged cleavage. I don’t mind looking at some cleavage, but when it’s attached to slurring drunken chicks drinking apple-tinis at a brewpub I’m 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.

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. It’s a unisex bathroom area, and they’re 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.

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 didn’t try anything. A place I’d revisit.
