April 06, 2007 - Triumph Philadelphia Finally Opens
"I feel like I got run over by a train and plan to just sit on the beach today and recover," Triumph Brewing's Jay Misson told the Beer Yard when he announced that the company's long awaited Philadelphia location on Chestnut Street in Olde City would officially open its doors on Thursday, April 5.

"We did a series of soft openings this weekend, one for VIPs on Friday night and one for friends and family Saturday and will do another friends and family thing tonight," Misson said on April 2. "We'll take a couple of days to evaluate things and then open officially."

There are currently eight beers on draught: Honey Wheat, Amber, IPA, Oatmeal Stout, Keller Pils, Dunkel, Chico Ale and Porter. Former New Hope brewer Patrick Jones, who has garnered several GABF medals, is the Philadelphia brewer.

Misson is director of brewing operations for Triumph, which currently has pubs in Princeton, NJ and New Hope, PA and is developing a second New Jersey location in Red Bank. The Philadelphia location was originally schedule to be ready this past January. --JACK CURTIN
