After attending Monk's many times I decided to review the place. This place hold up to its reputation. It is certainly one of the greatest places to find and enjoy beer. From beer enthusiasts to first timers, there is a beer for anyone. The beer selection is vast. Tons of bottles and superb draughts. You can find anything from mild session beers to rare vintage gems. Ontop of the phenomenal beer selection, the food is awesome too. Ive tried just about everything there and it has always been good. The portions are plentiful and the food is prepared well. This is the type of place where you can tell the people there care about whats inside. A very low key chill spot with a fancy 5 star selection. Always a favorite.

At the suggestion of my local bottleshop owner in Washington, I made a stop in Philly specifically for this place on a trip to the East Coast. I wanted to stay for the last 7 days.
The front section has the restaurant and main bar, but it also has a smaller, almost "exclusive" room in back with handles and plain wooden seating. Busy, fun, bit loud but that is a sign of a good business and happy customers.
Huge Belgian selection of both taps and bottles. Friendly, witty staff that know just about every beer they offer. Served in correct glasses of course. Overall a Belgian "Mecca" that, if you are in Phily, you need to try. Slightly expensive but Belgians usually are anyways and sadly didn't try the food. Go forth!!
