Default Triumph Brewery, New Hope PA

Got a gift card to this place from a competition. Forgot, maybe $20. So last night the wife and I go to see the fireworks (Excellent!) in town and then walk up to have a couple of beers. Sleazy dude with lots of piercing and ink say there's a $10 cover. No mention of this on their website or Facebook. Walked out. Did I make a mistake? Was this dude just scamming me? Or trying to keep the old folks out?

They have bands that play there sometimes, thats prob why there was a cover. The beer is good tho.

I've been to the Triumph in Old City Philadelphia, it was awesome! Great beer and great food. We went on a Friday night, no cover, though perhaps if there was live entertainment? Who knows.

Yeah. I'm sure it was a live band thing. I was just whining because I agreed to let my wife dragged me around Lambertville and New Hope with the promise of trying some new beers afterwards. Could have stayed home and drank homebrew (but would have missed the fireworks.)

Further than I like to drive after a few beers. New Hope's about a 10 minute drive. Any advantage to the Princeton location?

No, I just saw your location was "NJ" and wanted to make sure you were not overlooking a potentially closer location.

I am a big Triumph fan - give them another shot.

How is the New Hope compared to Old City? I love the Old City one...

My swmbo and I went to this one for Halloween last year... it was fun.
There was a $5 cover charge, but that was because there was a live band.

Tasty food, and their beers are pretty good, although for some reason my stomach feels bloaty and "carbonated" after two pints of their beer.
I'm not sure what causes that.

I prefer the olde city, they tend to have different better beers. I think they aim to please the New Hope crowd with fruitier beers and such. Although theres a couple beers that are supposed to be the same at all locations. There was just a change over of the headbrewer at olde city last week and the new guy seems excited and ready to go with some new brews. He'll be going back and forth between new hope and olde city.
