After a tour at the state capital and a brief record store excursion, it was time to enjoy a nice craft beer.

As you walk in, you'll notice tables & chairs to the left and right with a nice wooden bar in the center.

The Cheeky Monk showcases about 30 drafts with highlights that include Chimay Tripel, Kwak, Tripel Karmaliet, Houblon Chouffe, Delirium Tremens, St. Bernardus Abt. 12, La Chouffe, Piraat, Avery Dugana, DFH 90 Minute IPA, Victory Headwaters, Great Divide Grand Cru and Lindemans Faro (super rare). Expect about 25 solid Belgian bottle options too.

I had a Kasteel Rouge that was delicious. Served in appropriate glassware and a flavorful beer showcasing flavors of tart cherries and wooden oak.

Service was engaging, friendly and kind enough to provide a tasty sample of Lindemans Faro.

Stopped by while in Denver because it was the only bar I could track down Pliny on tap. It was empty on a Sunday afternoon. I have to say I was pretty astonished by the price of some of the regular trappist beers, and unimpressed by the tap and bottle selection. The bartender was really friendly though, and it is a bright and pleasant place for a beer. On my way out there was a street brawl on Colfax with about 20 high schoolers (half fighting, half recording on their phones).
