Truth. I’ve never been to Triumph Brewing Company in Old City, Philadelphia. I love beer and I honestly have no answer why I’ve never gone. My new job has put me up in Princeton, where Triumph’s original brewpub is located. Last week, I finally made it out for some brews and dinner.
Their burger, named the Triumph Burger, sounded good. It’s made up of a Pineland Farms grass-fed beef patty topped with romaine lettuce, tomato, and red onion. I paid $0.75 for the addition of cheddar.
It was cooked medium rare and was the perfect size for the fresh bun, which held together through consumption. There were no bites without a good balance of burger and bread. The burger wasn’t super juicy, but it had a great charcoal grilled taste. Accompanying the burger are fries (not house-cut), pickles, a side of ketchup, and a side of a special sauce/aioli. My friend ordered the pastrami sandwich and his didn’t come with the aioli, so I assumed it may be used to accompany the burger. I put some on the burger and definitely took the flavor up a notch.
Triumph Princeton has a pretty relaxed atmosphere in downtown Princeton. The burger was good as well as the beers. I’ll definitely be returning here after work sometime.
