A shrine to Belgian beer (the 'temple of beer worship'), so heavy on Belgians and Belgian styles on the tap and bottle lists. There’s an incredible mural stretching over the walls depicting shipwrecked monks. Free pomme frites Sundays, Mondays, and Wednesdays which generally appear sometime between 1730 and 1900. Otherwise you can bring your own food in to eat here. The New York City Homebrewers Guild meets here at 1930 on the third Tuesday of the month. This bar is one of three in a tight cluster, the others being Standings and Jimmy’s No.43 (q.v.). (2/2015)
A pretty substantial bottled list, though some of the prices are very high. Not a wide selection of US craft beers - Belgian theme featuring monks.
