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.

This process adds even more flavor, complexity, hop aroma and freshness to the beer.  8%abv  $8.50 PINT

Russian River Pliny the Elder

WINDSOR, CALIFORNIA – A bit of history first: Vinnie Cilurzo brewed America's first Double IPA, named  "Inaugural Ale", back in 1994 at Blind Pig Brewing Co, Temecula, CA.  That operation closed a few years later. Then Vinnie was hired as the original and only head brewer at Korbel Champagnes Cellars' foray into brewing – Russian River Brewing Co. Vinnie and his wife, Natalie bought the brewery a few years later and opened their Santa Rosa location. The rest, as they say is history. Vinnie is the originator of this style and he still brews the best version – Pliny the Elder. Brewed with copious amounts of Amarillo, Centennial, CTZ, and Simcoe hops. Very hoppy, but not a hop bomb – the balance of the malt and hops is extraordinary. Super drinkable, but be careful…it is 8%abv. $8.50 PINT

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  $8 PINT

Sierra Nevada Hoptimum

CALIFORNIA - Some of the most flavorful hops are pushed beyond their limits in this triple IPA.  Dry-hopped with  Amarillo, BRU-1, Pahto, and Simcoe hops in abundant quantities.   11%abv  $6.50

Tonewood / Monk's MC Lager

  TONEWOOD / MONK’S CAFÉ MC LAGER (Oaklyn, NJ) Exclusively at Monk’s Café and Tonewood’s brewery taprooms Join us to taste what the kids made…Eight Monk’s Coworkers brewed this beer with the crew from Tonewood Brewing a couple of months ago. This is a sessionable Lager with a slightly smoky flavor – subtle enough to not overwhelm your palate. Additonal aging was in a new-ish oak foeder to soften the lager and to add complexity, like a slight note of vanilla. Rabbit Hill Malthouse provided both the pilsner malt and the smoked malt. The latter was from a lightning-struck mulberry tree that provided the smoke notes.  $6 PINT

Tonewood SIPA

NEW JERSEY - An American session IPA dry-hopped with Mosaic.  Bright hops and malt balance nicely.  4.8%abv  $6 PINT

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  $10 chalice
