Jo and I went to the Belgian Cafe last night before going to the haunted house at the Eastern State Penitentiary. While the beer selection (at least drafts) isn't quite as good as Monk's, the Belgian Cafe more than makes up for it in atmosphere. The bar area is way more wide open, the bar itself is larger, and it's not a crowded mess like Monk's usually is. (I'm comparing them just because they are both owned by the same person for those that didn't know.) The food is pretty similar between the two and I had a great Monk's burger last night. Leeks and blue cheese are excellent on a burger.
The first beer I had was St. Bernardus 12.
The next beer I had was from Brouwerij De Dochter van de Korenaar called Embrasse.
Finally I finished with something quite a bit milder from Scotland. It was Harviestoun's Old Engine Oil.
I'd type more but I'm heading to Hulmeville Inn soon. Expect some more posts Sunday!
