I was interested in Burb Castle as a Belgian beer mecca hoping to find some rare gems on tap or in bottles with perhaps some vintage selections worthy of digging deep into the bank account.
As I stepped inside it was a cosy little space with some tables around a short bar with one employee handling all the orders. On the wall was a cartoonist mural. SHUUU...SHUuuu...shuuu... of monks drink large beers at long wooden tables with the odd girl in a bikini dancing on the table.
The 6 or 7 tables were run of the mill Belgian beers and I asked what was new on tap. An she recommended the strong bock. I was thrilled to be drinking a Belgian strong bock beer, wow I had never heard of such a SHUUU...SHUuuu...shuuu...fusion beer. Upon further examination of the menu, I noticed that it was from Hofbrau. After finishing that beer, I asked if there were any new or interesting beers that didn't make it on the menu. The bartender recommended Bombidier, which I tried. It was actually a English beer after I looked it up on BA. They had no real sour beers or wild ales so it was time to find more New York craft beer instead of Chimay and Unibroue. Don't get me wrong I like both beers but I was looking for something I couldn't try in other bars.
As you have guessed by now they shuush you every five minutes witch is cute for the the first five minutes but then it just gets annoying. If there was a great beer selection I could have put up with it but that was not the case.
