This place is an absolute institution in not only the Philadelphia beer world but in history of craft beer in the United States. As with any institution, they kind of have the attitude that they don’t need "your" business because someone else will always be behind you to take your stool. However, it is absolutely worth a visit. Monk’s Cafe is responsible for bringing Russian River to Philadelphia. They also have great food (think mussels and fries).

Amazing place and a must when in Philly. There may be some better places to get a beer in town (Eulogy, Tria) but Monk's is a classic and usually has some amazing stuff on tap. Went there last week and had Lost Abbey Deliverance - rocked my world. Monk's has an epic reputation and is well worth the visit.

Also the mussels are incredible :)
