Welp, I'm finally headed here tonight after work. Very excited. Any suggestions as to what beers I should try? Does anyone know if they have a sampler? I feel like I'm obligated to try some interesting beers and/or styles I've never had before.
Wow. What an exceptional beer haven. Not used to spending $8 for 12 ounces of beer (and I got more inexpensive beers), but it was great to try styles I've never had before. My two favorites were Monk's Café Flemish Sour Ale and Urthel Vlaemse Bock. It was the first time I'd had either style and they were both amazing. One could easily spend $100 just on beer in a few hours or quaffing. Definitely a must visit if you're in the area.
I went to Monk's last week when I was in Philadelphia on business. I also went to Tria. It is a very different atmosphere (more like a wine bar) but also has a fantastic beer menu. Their cheeses are also amazing. Another place to spend lots of time and even more money...

ugh. no kidding. haven't seen the show, but damn, you ain't lyin'. parking is nearly impossible. we would find a spot and keep it as long as possible, even if it meant walking a couple miles to where we were going.
(that last bit is rather unusual for us CA residents)
