Aecht Schlenkerla Helles Lager

GERMANY-Perhaps the world's leader in smoked beer.  Although they do not add any smoked malt to this beer, the brewing equipment imparts a subtle smokiness. 4.3%abv

Allagash Copain

MAINE-A foudre-aged session-strength sour ale brewed with local spelt and oats. Soft, balanced and eminently drinkable. 3.8%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

Cascade Chene Des Fous

CALIFORNIA-A blend of sour triple ales aged for up to 18 months in French oak barrels with dried sumac, fresh apricots and toasted American oak chains. Intense oak flavors are met with savory lemon and dried fruit notes. 8.4%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

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

Dieu du Ciel Peche Mortel

MONTREAL-Imperial coffee stout.  Notes of chocolate and a ton of coffee.  This is a mouth coating beer.  9%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 Rolling Bones 001

CALIFORNIA-The most recent release from Firestone's Barrel Works series of wood-aged beers. American Wild Ale fermented with plums, black currants, cherries and grapes. Matured 12-26 months in French Oak, American Oak, and rum barrels. 7.5%abv

Gurutzeta Sagardoa Basque Cider

SPAIN-Very dry, slightly tart cider with almost no carbonation. Great with food. Truly excellent. 6%abv

Hill Farmstead Edward

VERMONT-Part of the Ancestral Series, this American Pale Ale is crafted from American malted barley, a plethora of American hops, their ale yeast and well water from the farm. Unfiltered and dry-hopped. Aromatic and flowery with impressions of citrus and pine. 5.2%abv

Hill Farmstead Florence

VERMONT-Part of the Ancestral Series. Belgian inspired wheat Farmstead ale with American malted barley, Vermont wheat, and a blend of European & US hops. Fermented with his unique house yeast. 5%abv

Kerkom Bink Bruin

BELGIUM-Belgian brown ale that starts out malty and fruity but finishes surprisingly hoppy and dry. 5.5%abv

LaTrappe Quadrupel

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

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 Consecration

CALIFORNIA-A strong brown ale aged in a cabernet sauvignon barrel  for six months with fresh currants.  The wine, oak and currants are well integrated into this stunning beer. 10%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 Shadow of a Doubt

CALIFORNIA-Named after the great Hitchcock movie filmed in Santa Rosa in 1943. This imperial porter packs a rich chocolate and light smoked malt character with a very soft, dry finish. This is the first beer Tom drinks at their place upon each arrival. So thrilled to have this in Philly! 9.86%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

Strange Roots Saison Roots Chamomile

PENNSYLVANIA-House culture fermented saison conditioned on chamomile. Notes of bright chamomile dominate the flavor with hints of soft, earthy, herbal aromatics. There are undertones of bubblegum with a finish of subtle clove and banana esters. 6.2%abv

Tilquin Gueuze

BELGIUM-Pierre Tilquin opened his Gueuzerie a few years ago.  We were lucky enough to debut his lambic in the US - actually the first time it was poured outside of Belgium. Pierre's draft version differs a bit from his bottle conditioned version, but it is equally complex and very quaffable. 4.8%abv

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
