While hanging out in Philly with T.J. and Gregg and discussing their October wedding near here, we got a couple of brewery visits in. First, the Philadelphia Brewing Co., working out of a good looking old brick building in the Fishtown neighborhood.
Monk's has an incredible bottled beer list, around 300 labels and half of them from Belgium, where the greatest trippels, wits, saisons, and all that good stuff can be sampled. Another quarter of the list is many of the best American beers, like Russian River, Dogfish Head, Firestone Walker, and Ommegang. Got no pix but my taste buds will long remember Monk's.
