Allagash White

MAINE-Arguably the best Belgian-Style White beer made in the US.  Crisp & refreshing with hints of coriander and orange peel.  Rob Tod's interpretation of a traditional Belgian wheat beer, Allagash White is brewed with a generous portion of wheat and a special blend of spices, this beer is light and slightly cloudy in appearance, with a spicy aroma. 5%abv

Amager/Stillwater Darkest of Suns

DENMARK-An innovative black saison brewed with black pepper and juniper. 6.5%abv

Boon Geuze Selection

BELGIUM-Lambic from specific foeders are selected to best produce a “keg conditioned” geuze. Full bodied with signature sourness and low carbonation. 6.3%abv

Cascade Bourbonic Plague

WASHINGTON: I love this name, but haven't tasted this one yet. This is billed as a Sour Porter (right up my alley) which was aged in bourbon barrels (kinda lost me on that part). I love this brewery...lets try this together. 

Chimay Triple (aka Cinq Cents)

BELGIUM-Rich, spicy blonde triple, dry herbaceous finish. Brewed on the grounds of a Trappist Monastary (in the Ardennes Mtns). The hoppiest of their offerings. Since 1862 the Cistercian Trappist monks of Chimay have been developing the production of Trappist beers (and cheeses!). 8%abv

Chouffe Houblon

BELGIUM-Monk's served the very first keg outside of Belgium.  Chris handed a 5 liter keg to Tom at the Zythos beer festival in St. Nikolaas several years back.  Brought home as checked luggage.  Inspired by a US Imperial IPA, but with a classic belgian twist. 9%abv

Corsendonk Christmas Ale

BELGIUM-Malt & spice dominate the nose. Spices are well integrated into the beer - this is NOT one of those "pumpkin pie in a glass" beer. This is really, really tasty. A bit of 'root beer', coffee & chocolate in the finish. Medium body. Deep amber color. A staff favorite. 8.1%abv

De Dolle Arabier

BELGIUM- Pale ale dry hopped with Poperinge hops. Crisp & refreshing, yet with a bit of that De Dolle funk.  8%abv

Drie Fonteinen

BELGIUM-Armand created a new style with this beer...a sour Porter. It's a English-style porter made with two yeasts, one of which is brettanomyces. Imagine a lambic porter. 7%abv

Dupont Avec Les Bons Voeux

BELGIUM-It's baaaaaack! Arguably the best Holiday Ale made in Belgium. A bit of citrus in the finish. Lots of dried fruit in the taste. Medium to full body. Hops in the taste & finish. Dry finish.  9.5%abv

Firestone Walker BWX/OMG

CALIFORNIA-A blend of a funky Bretta Weisse and a farmhouse ale that was aged in French oak and inoculated with wild yeast and lactic cultures are the base. Then a foeder aged wild ale with blackberries and a wild ale with Zinfandel grapes were added. Notes of fruit with a tannic finish. 6.1%abv

Firestone Walker Double Jack

CALIFORNIA-A 9.5% Imperial IPA.  You need a ton of malt to reach that alcohol content, but Matt balances that sweetness with an inordinate amount of hops.  Tangerine and grapefruit aromas.  You have to be careful with this one.  The malt and hops mask the alcohol.

Grimm Ales Evening Sunrise

NEW YORK-Imperial oatmeal stout with coffee, brown sugar, toasted almonds and vanilla. Delicate notes of cherry and stone fruit pair with flavors of nutty, milk chocolate and sweet caramel. Full bodied with a soft tannic finish. 12%abv

LaTrappe Quadrupel

HOLLAND-A ton of dark roasted malts give this a hint of sweetness balanced with bitterness.  10%abv

Maine Beer Co. Peeper Ale

MAINE-American-style ale brewed one barrel at a time. Dry, clean and crisp. Ideal gateway for lager drinkers.  5.5%abv

Maine Beer Co. Zoe

MAINE-A hoppy, somewhat strong Amber Ale named after the brewer's daughter. Notes of biscuit, chocolate and dark fruit. Lots of citrus in the aroma and finish. 7.2%abv

Monk's Cafe Flemish Sour Ale

BELGIUM-Our own private label brewed for us by the family owned Van Steenberge brewery, just outside of Ghent, Belgium. Medium body, red color, somewhat fruity nose, malt flavor with a slight lactic sourness. A real thirst quencher and palate cleanser.

Oxbow Moon Rocks

MAINE- Mixed fermenteation grisette, with extended aging in oak so it’s nice and tart and funky. Oats, spelt, wheat base. Tiny hint of smoke; one of the barrels in the blend formerly held gin, so a bit of herbal/botanical note. Secondary ferment on peach lees. 4.5%abv

Ploughman Cider BA Goldrush

PENNSYLVANIA-Single varietal cider aged in a French oak puncheon that previously held apple brandy. Ben used Goldrush apples that have bright, citrusy acid softened by the oak barrel. This is the only keg to leave their taproom.

Russian River Blind Pig

CALIFORNIA - Perhaps my favorite West Coast IPA. Solid hop aromas and finish backed up by the perfect balance of malt. 6.1%abv

Russian River Damnation

CALIFORNIA-This is the new and improved version of Duvel-inspired Damnation. Vinnie felt it could be better. In his words “less banana, more apple/pear notes . More yeast-driven spiciness. Much drier than the original.” 7.5%abv

Russian River Pliny the Elder

CALIFORNIA- This is the original Double IPA, made by mistake, natch.  More hops balanced by bigger malt.  Aromas of grapefruit dominate.  Finishes surprisingly dry, yet not too bitter.  8%abv 

Russian River Pliny the Younger

CALIFORNIA-This is the original Triple IPA. I love this year's iteration of this brewed-once-a-year Holy Grail. Aromas of grapefruit and guava/mango. I can smell this beer from across the room – it is that aromatic. Finishes with a great balance of malty sweetness and hop bitterness. Elegant, dry finish with distinct guava/mango flavors. All of those fruity aromas and flavors derive from Vinnie's choice of hops. Crazy good beer.   10.25%abv LIMIT OF 2 GLASSES PER PERSON

Russian River STS Pils

CALIFORNIA-A classic European style Pilsner. Straw in color and often times slightly hazy as it is unfiltered.  Hop forward with a mild malt foundation, strong lager yeast characteristic, and a dry, bitter finish. Damn! This is a World-Class Pilsner. Perfectly balanced and oh, so quaffable. Seriously- try this.  5.35%abv

Sierra Nevada Bigfoot Barleywine

CALIFORNIA-An award-winning barleywine that boasts a dense, fruity bouquet, an intense flavor palate and a deep reddish-brown color. 9.6% ABV. Its big maltiness is superbly balanced by a subtly bittersweet hoppiness. "..Bigfoot captures the imagination, and its character is as big as the name implies, with a huge hoppiness in its earthy aroma, a chewy palate, and a great depth of flavor". -  Michael Jackson, Michael Jacksons Beer Companion

Westmalle Dubbel

BELGIUM-Monk’s Café is honored to be one of a few beer bars to debut this legendary Trappist beer on draft in Pennsylvania. A dark red-brown beer with notes of caramel, malt and fruity esters followed by a long, dry finish. Rich and complex. We are so excited to pour this gem! 7%abv
