I've been coming to the Hulmeville for a while now (and always pass by it back when it was Marek's Cafe), and I can tell you, there are some great microbrew here. The micros do get changed a lot, so you can get a choice of what is popular in beers nowadays. you also have the standard beers (Miller Lite, Coors Light, Yuengling Lager, Budweiser) as well.
The food is the standard bar food, which makes it even better. The staff also knows everything about the beers that are served.
There is not a whole lot of parking, but that due to the fact of when The Hulmeville was first built, back in 1803 by John Hulme Jr.

I am a smoker so the fact that I can smoke at the bar is a plus for me.
I have been to this place more times than I can remember over the last 10+ years. There's only been a handful of bartenders over the years and they are all very pleasant and knowledgeable. A couple of them are even home brewers with above average of knowledge of craft beers.
I find that Monday nights are sometimes the best nights with their specials on craft beers. Weekends are usually the mix of patrons but don't let that stop you.
I feel their food is above average for a bar. The wings and cheesesteaks are some of the best in the Philly area.
The beer selection at The Hulmeville Inn cannot be summed up in one visit. The taps rotate constantly. If the owner happens to be around, he is usually talking to a patron as if they were a close friend. He loves to talk beer and is always open to suggestions for beer to put on tap. There's almost always some brewery or special beer event planned.
The owner hosts a monthly meeting of the local home brew club as well.
If you don't like the smoke, go for lunch when it's not as crowded.

Atmosphere: Ranging from younger crowds playing pop on the jukebox --- all the way over to old rednecks slappin knees playin country. So... it's iffy sometimes.
Beer quality has never been in question, lines appear to be cleaned, they even innovate with pumping beer through hops sometimes!
Service is great, Dillon is one of my favorite bartenders.
Selection of Imperial Stouts and Quality IPAs can lack at times, but they have a very diverse selection and the owner is dedicated to keep bringing in new beers.
Food is standard bar food, but it's tasty, made quickly, and inexpensive.
Overall, cheap, quality beer, food, and sometimes, the company can be cheap. Also, sometimes it's hard to get a place to sit!

One of the reasons why I purchased my current home was its proximity to the Hulmeville Inn. This bar is easily the best beer bar in Bucks County. Amazing selection of bottled beer, first class revolving draught beer, and you can still get a $2.50 Lager. The regular bar tenders are excellent, but sometimes their substitutes are not as versed in beer. New menu is fantastic; I love the Brisket, and the deep-fried green beans. Two pool tables and dart board. My only complaint is that it is a smoking establishment.

Great looking bar and I love the beer bottle xmas tree. Enough TV's Nice wood accents. The only drawback is the smoking.
Always friendly service and attentive.
The food is good. But it is basic pub food. Burgers, BLT, Chili, Soup.
The draft beer selection is the best north of Center City. I have had Russian River, Weyebacher 15, Dogfish Head Bitches Brew, Olde School, and Worldwide Stout, etc. Jeff always tries to get the unusual.
Some bottles can be expensive but they are expensive outside the bar.

Good beer selection, whether you are looking for draught or bottle. They have a beer menu available which tells you when the keg was tapped, the name/type and place of origin, alcohol %, and price. The menu is also updated constantly with new arrivals. Food is pretty decent for bar food, especially their sandwich selection. The building has an old colonial look to it, and probably is from that time. I've been there many times and never experienced any "rift raft" causing problems. Definitely a place to check out.

A: This bar definitely seems to be in transition; from the corner "pop pops" bar, to a craft beer bar. It'll be interesting to see if they go all of the way (I sure hope so, I only live 2 minutes away). Just a little too smokey for my taste, but the draft selection definitely off sets it.
Q: Get there early to find a parking spot. Pretty roomy, and plenty of TV's.
Ser: Great staff. Friendly, helpful, and nice. They were quick to answer any questions, offer suggestions and some were wearing different brewery t-shirts (I thought that was kinda cool). And they filled a growler for me.
Sel: They offer a nice variety, Flying Fish, Troegs, Weyerbacher, DFH, Sly Fox, Stone and Victory.
Food: Yummy!!! Usual bar food, but oh so yummy!
V: Pretty decent.
ASK ABOUT THE DEAD MAN WALKING!!!
On a side note, they have a couple of bottles of Utopias. I've never asked for a glass, but I'm sure if you're paying their pouring :)

I found this place in philly beer week.org for the Weyebacher night.I knew about it but never went in. Parking is a little tight we had to park by another building that was closed. You first walk in and it seems a very tight fit. Decent size bar area.A little crowded when we went I guess do to beer - week and the weekend. (Then all of a sudden some big guy stumbles grabs hold of a chair the chair goes down then he stumbles some more trying to regain balance then boom falls flat on his ass). Small room when you walk in to your right with pool table's. If you walk straight there is a dining area that stretches the length of the bar.
Was very impressed with the selection of brew on tap probably right around 15-20 taps. I seen Founder's Breakfast Stout, Dogfish head, Troegs, Weyebacher and free tasting but none of us had any. My first beer was Palo Santo, second was Manage a Frog, Third was an Allaghdash white I believe. All served into the proper glassware which was a plus. A new hot spot for me.

The Hulmeville Inn is a gem of a beer bar right in between Bensalem and Langhorne. The rotating selection is always great and fresh. They've recently started having weekly Firkin Thursdays which is always a great treat. Plus they have an email list which alerts you do what is on and off tap. This feature allowed me to head over during lunch to grab a PtY. The food is exceptionally good for bar food. If you like spice try the Firehouse Burger.
My complaints are of course the smoking but also the service can be a little slow too during busy times. Usually when I've been there they only have one bartender (who does a good job trying to get to everyone) but it would be nice if they had someone else helping out. Also, the parking is very limited and most times you're parked along the road. But it's a small price to pay for a bar that brings excellent beer to the community.

This is a great beer bar in a city known for great beer bars so the stakes are high. They have 20 taps that can range from Moylaner IIPA to Russian River Pliney the Elder and Younger. The day I was there they had a great selection of beers from New Holland to Russian River to Yards and Weyerbacher etc. Great selection on the juke box and they had the Phillies game on the large screen TV. They have a great outside patio but it wasn't open yet they have 40+ micro brewer in cans out there so if it's the summer give it a try they also have a separate food menu for the patio. The food is decent bar food the wings are good the Firehouse burger is one of the best I've had. Overall a solid bar the only negative is it's a smoking bar.
