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.

Ok so I finally checked this place out and left very unimpressed. To start off they had Pliny the Elder listed at $8 which I thought was a little expensive until they brought it in a 25cl glass, super expensive seeing as how Falling Rock has pints for $7. If they are selling short pours it should be noted on the menu. We were also seated in a side room that has terrible ambience. The service was good but the good was mediocre. I ordered mussels ($13) and not only were there not very many but they were way to salty. There is a French restaurant her (le central) that not only has much better mussels but they are only $10 and you get a huge bucket. Between the overpriced beer and mediocre food I won't be back and is advise others to avoid unless you really need Belgian beer. They did have Cantillon gueuze on the menu for $22 per 375ml.

A place of elegance within one of the harsher areas of town. Beer line up was impressive and tap list superb. I did think though in some instances they were overpriced but that might go with the territory as places downtown seem to run a little more quite often. Server was very knowledgeable about beer. This is definitely worth a stop if you're into Belgians and want a wide range of good craft from one source. I myself though will probably go to other alternatives in town with some many other less expensive choices.
