My best discovery in Denver. A great selection of beers both on tap and a large bottled selection. Heavily Belgian influenced. Worth a visit for the female rugby loving bartender. Excellent service. The bar was fairly quiet when I visited early in the day.

Decent sized bar and restaurant. They had trivia going during the visit (seemed to be wrapping up). Things were fairly quiet but it was late and a Wednesday night, so understandable. Tap list is dominated by Belgian beer, but a pretty respectable number of American micros on tap. Prices are pretty high, unfortunately. I ordered the house beer, and it was alright, but the tab came back at nearly $10! Service is good and a cool atmosphere, but a little spendy for me.

Stopped by for the Bruery Breakfast during GABF. The non Bruery tap list looked pretty good, but Belgian import heavy. Food was good, and service was decent too. A bit out of the way of your usual downtown beer bars. Not bad.

Visited October 9 and 11, 2013.
Another rateable place on Colfax which is an interesting part of town. Itís a main drag of sorts for the bums but it also has some respectable businesses on it. Cheeky Monk is about the only good beer spot on this strip but eventually Lost Highway Brewing will be opening right next door. Not sure where theyíre brewing currently since we had several of their beers on tap at Cheeky Monk. On the first visit womencanstail refused to drink a good beer and ordered the house beer for $10 and it was an overly sweet tripel that no one enjoyed. The wit from Lost Highway turned out to be alright. They also had some St Bernardus 12 and a few other good beers flowing that night. We didnít eat.
The second stop was after the second session of GABF on Saturday and the place was packed with drunk people and the servers were clearly not enjoying themselves. There was one fat drunk beer nerd sitting next to me that was angering the server intentionally. His girlfriend could barely stand. Chinoskillzian got up to use the bathroom she took his seat. I asked her to give the seat back and she obliged but tried to say something and made no sense. She was nice enough about it but it was obvious that she did not need to be drinking anymore. I ordered a burger with some kind of feta and caramelized onions on it. I ordered it medium rare and it came out medium, which is perfect for me. The service was nice but very slow. If it didnít take forever to get my check I would have tipped well.

Meh, the tap selection here is Belgian (surprise) and quite thoughtful, though nothing was particularly out of the ordinary. There were a handful of local Belgian-inspired beers available, and the bottle list included a few more. I was here for one beer and left, so I cannot comment on the food.

Stopped in here in February í13 with some local friends. Great tap and bottle selection. Was able to enjoy an Uncle Jacobís (a beer Iíve been after for a while) with lunch.

This is a very good Belgian beer bar. All the beer is served in brand appropriate glassware. The menu has some appealing options including the beer hummus I enjoyed. Service was knowledgeable and friendly. Mostly well to do businessmen were at the bar on my visit. My favorite thing is among all the Belgian offerings, a few standout American beers were available including Pliny the Elder. score!

I love belgian beer and I love visiting the Cheeky Monk. While there probably isnít anything at the Cheeky Monk that you wouldnít be able to get at a good liquor store in Denver, they have a lot of belgian beers on tap that you wonít find on tap around Denver.
