Allagash Heartset

MAINE-A collab with Brasserie Dupont, this strong saison is made with local ME wheat and a house yeast for a bright, golden base. Savinjski Golding hops give bursts of southern Belgian aromatics and a refreshing, dry finish. 8.5%abv

Allagash Nancy

Allagash Nancy (ME) Copper hued tart ale fermented with 100% Brettanomyces and fresh Maine Cherries. Shows a bit of pie spice, too. 6.6%abv

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

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

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 Agnus Triple

BELGIUM-Dry, lightly citric fruitiness leads to a distinctive, delicate and perfume-y hop character. 7.5%abv

De Dolle Oeral

BELGIUM-Lower abv, easier drinking summer version of Arabier. Hoppy, fresh and delightful. 6%abv

De Molen Hel & Verdoemenis Bruichladdich Brett

NETHERLANDS-This version is Menno’s Bruichladdich barrel aged Imperial Stout. It’s aged for 5 months in whiskey barrels and another month with Brettanomyces added. 10%abv

De Molen Tsarina Esra

NETHERLANDS-An Imperial Porter. Stronger version of a Baltic Porter made with Chinook and Saaz hops. Soft roasted malt character with nice hoppy finish. 11%abv

Domaine Christian Drouin Poire Cidre

FRANCE-Light gold and slightly cloudy pear cider. Crisp acidity and a discreet sweetness with hints of pear and citrus. Refreshing. 4%abv

Firestone Walker Los Leñadores

CALIFORNIA-This collaborative quest with Cigar City is an imperial brown ale aged in high rye bourbon barrels for a year and infused with African and Brazilian hardwood spirals. Notes of waffle cone and chocolate with layered accents of cinnamon spice and vanilla. 11.6%abv

Hermit Thrush Windham Flora

VERMONT-Barrel aged, spontaneously fermented golden ale straight from their cool ship. Aged for 21 months in Marsala and Chianti barrels. Incredibly floral with a crazy complex flavor, notes of citrus, flashes of red wine and touches of oak. 5.9%abv

Hill Farmstead Grassroots Brother Soigné

VERMONT-A collaboration with Luc, formerly of Brasserie Dieu de Ciel (Montreal). Tart, refreshing ale brewed with lime, hibiscus and blood orange in a mixed fermentation. 5%abv

Hitachino Nest Red Rice Ale

JAPAN-Brewed with special red rice which had been cultured in ancient times in Japan. Complex Sake like flavours with a hint of strawberry in the nose and palate. 7%abv

La Trappe Quadrupel

NETHERLANDS-A ton of dark roasted malts give this a hint of sweetnes with a nicely balanced bitterness.  10%abv  

Lost Abbey Devotion

CALIFORNIA - Originally brewed for Monk's Café's 10th Anniversary.  This is now a year round beer for them.  This was inspired by Tomme & Tom sharing a bottle of Westvleteren Blonde at Monk's.  We loved the low-ish alcohol and fresh hop character.  Tomme did a great job capturing the spirit of that beer.

Maine Beer Co Mo

MAINE-American Pale Ale with notes of zesty citrus, pine resin & passionfruit accented by subtle malt sweetness and a dry finish. 6%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.

Off Color Silly People

ILLINOIS-An American-style gose brewed with lemon peel, coriander and French grey sea salt. Fermented with Lactobacillus, Torulaspora and Brettanomyces. 4.5%abv

Oxbow Kasvot Kvass

MAINE - Philly's favorite e-pat, Mike Fava, helped Tim to create this inspired brew. The used blueberry rye bread from their local Fishman's store with additional Maine Rye (I'm assuming the rye has been malted) & Maine Blueberries. Can't wait to tast this puppy. 7%abv

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 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 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

Three Floyds Robert the Bruce

INDIANA-A bold Scottish-style ale with a complex, robust, malty body derived from roasted and crystal malts. Hops provide balance to this deep ruby colored ale. Layered caramel flavors with roasted notes. 6.5%abv

Westmalle Dubbel

BELGIUM-Monk’s Café is honored to be one of two bars (our pals at Teresa’s being the other) 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
