Visited on a saturday night with reservations, though it looked like that may not have been needed.
A - nicely appointed brewpub with a great adaptation of an old warehouse look, with the use of reclaimed woods, brick and metals. Very nicely appointed, again.
Q - I never know to rate beer qualityor overall. Overall, the beer actually brought this experience down. That, and the prices. (more later)
S - FAST service. The number of servers really let the server be attentive to anything you needed, a number of times. Also, the manager on duty did make a perfectly concerened, uninterruptive, unobtrusive visit to the table to make sure that everything was to our liking and satisfaction. That was a nice touch, as he went casually to a few tables around us.
F - everything we had was good. a nice sushi plate appetizer to share, a nice fish special and a noodle bowl for my friends, vegan dumplings for my wife, and veal saltimbocca for me. All was good. However, VERY overpriced in terms of the food.
V - I have to say very expensive...the beers wewre $5 a pop, which is to be expected, as they were 20 once pours. Ok, par for the course, but: $17 for vegan dumplings without ANY accompanyment. Just six dumplings. $25 for a non-rare fsh special, etc.. I could go on.
Overall - I know it is a tourist trap due to it's size, as compared to some other places in New Hope, but it is also a craft beer destination that falls a bit short for a couplle of reasons mentioned above. I will praise the service level again. That is welcoming.

Tucked away from the main streets of New Hope, making it so that the modern sports bar/lounge feel doesn't clash with New Hope's quaint and charming vibe.
The place is huge, with a nice, warm, wood-paneled aesthetic. Live music and pool tables were a definite plus for my husband. There is an outdoor area with tidy, comfy couches and picnic tables, but the crowd makes it feel like the patio at a rich kid's high school party.
And with that said, the crowd is mainly white bread tourists and the young, preppy suburban set. Not really a place for meeting people unless you're in the Greek scene and looking to exchange phone numbers.
As for the beer. I remember thinking the prices were a bit outrageous, even for an East Coast brewery. But maybe that's because the service was so poor and everything I tried was absolutely sub-par.
The bartender couldn't tell me a thing about any of the beers. Couldn't even tell me the styles. "Um...I think it's a dark beer..." was the most I could get out of her. I opted for a flight, and Every. Single. Beer. Disappointed. Honestly, they were practically drain pours. The tastes ranged from metallic to dishwater. We were out of there in no time.

I stopped by last week for a late lunch with the family. I was surprised that they had a band in the middle of the afternoon. The band was a little too loud for me, but the kids enjoyed the show. For lunch we all had burgers, and all were satisfactory. The menu featured alot of locally sourced food, but I was not in the mood for anything too eclectic. On to the beer, I enjoyed a rasberry chocolate stout and a best bitter(on cask). Both were very enjoyable. Our service was very prompt, and he was very attentive to our table. I felt the beer and food were reasonabley priced for the area. I did pick up a few bottles to take home, and they were abit pricey. I definitely would go back if I were in the area.

Had lunch there today with the Mrs. and the baby. They set us up at a nice table to accomodate a 3 month old.
We started with banana guacamole, and it was very different... and yet very tasty. They used plantains instead of corn chips to dip in the guac.
I followed up with a tasty pulled pork with jalapeno sauce. The pork was very good, but the sauce was entirely too spicy enough that they invaded my tasting of the beer.
I had a tasting of the taps with my meal... sorry I was too indecisive. Some were good, some were lacking. I liked the oatmeal cookie stout, the strong IPA, and the Wee Heavy. I thought the Wee Heavy was pretty gutsy to offer as it was served at cellaring temperature on a hand pump. The ABV and body on this is a killer for the summer. I would pick up a growler, but I don't know too many that would enjoy this with me. The tasting came out with a presentation and explanation of each little glass. The waiter was still learning, but he recited the offering really well.
They offered bombers of some select beers. I enjoyed the IPA, so the double IPA sounded good... except that they run $18 a bottle. I just don't understand why you would pay that much considering that most domestic bombers usually run $12-15 in most liquor stores.

I got the chance to have a few pints while in New Hope at Triumph after a quick trip across the river to visit River Horse in Lambertvile, NJ. The place was not hard to find, in the center of the shopping center and they have a large sign out on York rd. They greeted us in a friendly way and were pretty up on the service at the bar, I didn't eat since we had reservations elsewhere but I enjoyed a couple of the draft offerings and my wife tried one. They were able to answer all my questions about the growler fills and new 750 ml that were available. I liked the atmospher- it has a modern slant and the open bar area is nice with a stage for bands to play at the end of the bar near the kitchen.
The quality of the beers and the selection were both good. They had a nice variety-IPA, stout, raspberry wheat and Scotch ale on the handpump. I enjoyed the IPA and had the Oatmeal cookie stout on Nitro. They also had a Pils and amber for nice summer styles. I reocmmend coming here even if the price was slightly high -I was told when the bill came after I ordered 1 half pint that since the full pint was cheaper that is what I was charged for, but I was not treated to the other 1/2 (?)

atmosphere is cool, with the bar downstairs with some pool tables and stage for bands, with tables for dinner upstairs. Rustic or industrial type architecture, with exposed beams and brick, lots of metal and wood. Outdoor seating as well.
Our service for dinner, and then at the bar later (we were there to see a band) was okay. server and bartenders could have been friendlier.
Had 7 beers on tap, including one on nitro and one on hand pump. I had the Stout, Pale Ale, Amber, and Pils. Only the stout was memorable. The food was good, but expensive. $14 for a burger and fries. And the beer and mixed drinks seems a bit overpriced as well. $5 for a middle of the road 4% pilsner seems a bit steep.
Also, watch out for the electronic parking meters. Which seems like a total ripoff for a suburban shopping center.

I would have to say that out of all the bars in New Hope, Triumph is definitely my favorite place to visit (next to John & Peters). They have the best beer selection in New Hope that I've come across, and that's not just because they brew their own (it's because the local bars don't have much to offer). The place is really nice inside. It can get a bit cramped at times, but overall has a great atmosphere, especially if there is a good live band on the stage. There are a couple of pool tables and a dart board off to the side, and back deck which they open in the summer. I would say that most of the beer is good, not great, but as I said before, this is probably the spot to come if you like beer and are visiting New Hope (or cross the bridge and visit the River Horse tasting room). Overall, I would say that if you are in the area, Triumph is a solid place to grab a beer, but I wouldn't necessarily go out of my way to pay a visit.
