It was like heaven on earth. The food was great, the samples were great and the service was top notch. Was also my first time to a belgian beer cafe and since my favorite beers are belgians I am very bias, but it was a great time and can't wait to go back next time I am in Denver.

Although I rated this a bit pricey (because it is most of the time).. The best deal in town is lunch at the Monk. (11am to 2pm)
$6.99 for food, and almost every beer is 1/2 off.. When many beers are $8-$9 this is a smoking deal. Even stuff from Russian River ends up costing $3-4 during lunch. I typically hit the rotating beer list (which is separate from the regular menu loaded with beers you don't see anywhere else in the state from Belgium).
Can't say that I've ever been there for dinner but if your value minded and want great beer/food (and great service because not many people know about this deal) I'll see you there at lunch..
It's always a good time for a beer,

Pt. 2 of beerandraiderfan's foray into enemy territory. While my lady and her hot aunt were still out shopping, I jettisoned myself from the Rock Bottom next door, over into the second Cheeky Monk I'd been to in 48 hours (the other one on the hipster side of Denver).
I went to the back bar for some reason. Actually, I don't know if the front one was open. The place was virtually empty. My favorite time to be in a bar. Bartender was a really cool black dude, from Atlanta originally I think, we watched lots of handball, talked beer. Place is big, like the other (butt) Cheeky Monk, it has plenty of Belgian paraphrenalia all over the place. Samples were doled out for the 1 or 2 beers I was interested in.
Selection was real close to getting a five from me. Lots of Russian Rivers (I had a Consecration on tap to finish me off). Lots of Avery stuff (I splurged on a $25 bottle of Uncle Jacobs, they also had Muscat D'Mour or whatever its called, but since Avery's sours have yet to really impress me, I went with the closest thing I've ever had to Black Tuesday). Of course, it wouldn't be Cheeky Monk without a ton of Belgians either.
Ordered like a french dip I think. Fries were great. The girls had come back and ate a late lunch with me, they liked their stuff. What a great few hours. Girls shop, I drink. Check it out, another winner in Westminster, this place gets my vote as one of the best suburb type drinking spots around. Its not quite the OC or Bay Area, but its damn fine nonetheless.

The Cheeky Monk will always hold a special place in my heart as my first true experience with real craft beer. I have had the luck of being exposed to very many great different beers while visiting the Monk. Everything from Avery's Beast to Pliny the Elder has been on tap, not to mention all of the regular Belgians that are served year round.
The food is tasty, and definitely serves a niche in my community. I've had everything from beans and mash to fish and chips, soups and salads, or simply a BLT and fries.
The atmosphere is outstanding. It is a very comfortable environment to spend the better part of an evening. The staff is very knowledgeable and willing to share with you and make you feel welcome.
Overall, I would highly recommend anybody to stop in and give Cheeky Monk a shot. I don't think you'd walk away unhappy.

I'm glad we found this place! A great place to try many Belgian beers. They have one of the greatest selections of Belgian beers I've seen. They always have a few other great choices on tap as well....i.e. Russian River, Dogfish Head! A huge variety in bottles also. The staff is very knowledgeable about all of their products. This is where I found the Duchesse De Bourgogne!
The food and service is great. Great mussels and frites. Their sandwiches are delicious and very filling.The beer isn't cheap, but Belgian never is.

Well, it took me a while to find this place. It's in one of those new 'city center' type developments where all the shops are on a residential-like grid. Hard to find something in the dark with all the foot and car traffic...especially if you've never been there before. A fake small town downtown feel...but anyway...
A medium sized front patio area overlooks...nothing, really. But at least it's outside. Inside is has the money. It all looks very nice and formal, kind of like the wine bar across the street. Fireplace in the middle, which is kind of cool. I don't get "Belgium" feel here, but I'm all about the beer.
Sat at the bar. Pretty good selection of Belgian beers on tap and in bottles. Pricey, but as I work in the industry I think I give more attention than most. They were out of a few things on the menu, which included some American craft beers from Stone, Great Divide, DFH. Glassware matched the beers.
I didn't mark food b/c I only had some appetizers (which were spicy hot...and I was not informed of this). Service was ok, nothing special.
I wouldn't go here again for the simple fact that I live in Denver. If I live closer, yes I'd go again (if I had the money, too).
