Teresa's has a great vibe that hits you as soon as you walk in the door. A mixed crowd of young hipsters and older people that know how to have fun fills the bar floor and seats. Vibrance radiates throughout the entire bar.

Their tap selection is unmatched, period. They have hard to find beers on tap, and are frequently keeping up with the seasons from what I am told. Their bottle selection is also extensive, their glassware is nothing ever seen before. They literally have a glass for every beer, not style, but beer per style per brewery. Phenomenal.

The service is quick, but you do need to know what you're looking for. Don't rely on recommendations, though there is a larger bearded fellow who knows exactly what he is talking about.

While their bottle selection is extensive, it consists of typically easy to find craft brews with a few stragglers in there. As noted earlier, this a tap bar, as the some of the stuff they get is really wild and out there.

Everybody around was eating mussels, and while I have never tried the part of the sea, they looked fantastic. I settled for fry's with their signature sauce, as I had a budget to adhere to for the trip. Still, it was great barroom snacking food.

You can walk out with your wallet still intact, but watch out as some of the beers (even on tap) can run a little higher then expected. But it's worth it.

People keep making the correlation between this place and Monk's in Philly for a good reason; the food, the beer, the atmosphere, and the beer-savvy servers here would make you swear that this place is an offshoot of Tom Peters' fabled joint.

The one thing I do enjoy immensely about Teresa's is their geographical location and their (lack) of people; whereas Monk's is still my favorite bar on this side of the coast, it's very hard for me to have a relaxed evening where I can kick back and enjoy my beer with some Belgian-inspired finger food and pub fare, because well... everytime I end up going to Monk's it's always a freaking zoo inside -- good luck getting a seat at the bar unless you want to eerily stalk or creep behind one of the tenants until they get uncomfortable enough to move out of their seat.

That being said, the beer choice at Teresa's is almost as phenomenal as Monk's with about half the demand that Monk's gets; Bottles of Cantillon disappear within hours of hitting Monks, whereas I was able to enjoy a nice 75cl bottle of Iris here, followed by a 37.5cl bottle of 100% Lambic Classic Gueuze; the Russian River sours seem to be almost always be in ample supply here, and their rotating tap of harder to find Belgians is almost par with Tom Peters' eclectic weekly offerings.

The food here is absolutely amazing; I love that they have a charcuterie/cheeses option, as well as some dishes harder to come across (my friend tried his first escargot here) -- I would love to come back here to try the Dry-aged Wagyu in lieu of the Duck Confit Salad I had, and maybe try my hand at some of their other hearty entrees.

I'll have to give Teresa's Cafe a try as well since you can reportedly get the same drinks on either side of the establishment.
