Located in the east village is Burp Castle.
The bar is not an incredibly large one, but an interestingly decorated one with murals of monks on the walls.
They have 10-12 taps I recall, they had Samichlaus, Tripel Karmeliet, Youngs Double Chocolate Stout, Corsendonk Brown, and Allagash White, among others when I was there. Bottles from Belgium, the U.K. and Germany are also available, Sam Smith, Kwak & Rodenbach are some that they carry. As mentioned by other reviewers, the bar promotes a theme of not raising your voice or yelling, so it is nice for a mellow conversation with a chum. I did enjoy my brief stop here, in which I enjoyed a Delierium Tremens, which was pleasant as always. If you find yourself in the East Village, this is a good spot to check out.

Gone are the days when the bartender wore a monk's robe, much like the Gregorian chants. Still this little bar is a nice place to venture for a quiet drink. The bartender will shush you when you get loud.
This little hole in the has a dozen beers on tap (mostly Belgian ales). I don't know if they still have a bottle selection as I usually drink from the tap.
The atmosphere is laid back and quiet. There's no television to watch 'the game.' THis place is meant to be an escape from the city and it does a good job with this.
Definitely worth a visit.
