A couple of weeks ago, Giancarlo and I went to Philadelphia to visit Giancarlo’s cousin (and BeerUnion contributor) Katie. After a day of touring the historical sites, we went to Triumph Brewery on Chestnut Street for dinner and brews. The atmosphere was hip and trendy; the food was excellent.
As for the beers, I had the Munich Dunkel (pictured here), which was smooth and delicious with a roasted flavor. Others we sampled were the Honey Blonde, the Double IPA, the Nuit de Folie (Night of Madness) and the Oatmeal Stout. While the dunkel was my favorite, the Honey Blonde was light and malty and “the madness” was thick and fruity. The only one I wasn’t too thrilled about was the IPA.
Overall a fun way to start the evening!
