Glad I took some notes last night when I stopped in for a bite post-Extreme Beer Fest (session 1), otherwise, I probably wouldn't be able to recall much about the experience. Arrived at about 4:45PM. The bar had not yet filled up (thank God) so I was able to belly up no problem. Then I realized that I was sitting right next to the front door which meant a blast of cold arctic air everytime someone came in. The barkeep was fine with me moving to the other bar (which must be the "Monks Cell") away from the door. Loved the hanging Einstein-esque bare lightbulbs in the first bar and the more intimate feeling in the Cell area. The hanging wrought iron cathedral style lamp in the first bar also caught my eye. Anyway, the Belgian list was very extensive, but I wasn't bowled over by the comparatively minimal selection of Belgian browns. Maybe that's nitpicking since the remaining selection was massive. Started with a Urthel Samaranth (bottle) in a gorgeous Urthel stemmed glass. Loved the hanging Belgian glasses. In my simple mind, it's not just about the beer, it's the glassware that also makes Belgian Belgian, so nice job in that respect. Ordered the mac and cheese with sausage and shrimp. Hot and spectacular on this cold New England night. Truly hit the spot. This is a wonderful place to enjoy special beer. Not cheap, mind you, but Belgian never is no matter where you may find it, but the price is worth it. Great atmosphere, efficient service and a wonderful pub in one of my favorite cities. I will likely return when I go to NERAX this spring.
