We actually came here based on Lydieís recommendation earlier that day while at 3 fonteinen. The place was bustling with a mostly-brussels crowd. The bar and small dining room are separated; the full beer list is only available at the bar, while food can only be ordered in the dining room. The tap and bottle list were fairly small, but priced favorably; westy blonde and abt were available for 7 and 9 euro respectively, while I drank three Jambe de Bois which totaled 9 euro. The spaghetti focus is a little goofy, but it was delicious. In the heart of the centre, Monk deserves a look if moeder lambic fontainas is on the menu.

It was really busy here with a mixed crowd of folks. Nice interior, feels modern but retains an old school touch. Nice selection of beers, something for everyone. Will return next time Iím in Brussels.

Came to update my rating and found I never rated it in the first place. The new Monk looks pretty much the same but the list is decent. Was able to get the new Brussels Beer Project beer here and a couple of 750ml bottles of beers I had never heard of, so there is definitely something worth visiting for. They have free wifi too. Canít remember much else as it was late on a long day, but glad it is back on the list of places to go for me.

Great place. Nice selection over smaller Belgian brews + the classics. Great atmosphere. Great bartender (if the owner is serving).
Not the great beer-geek-place to visit, but a great place for someone who enjoys a good beer in a pleasant surrounding.
UPDATE: Re-opened this weekend! Beerlist is accurate.

Just a heads up that this place is currently closed. Iíve not retired it as there is a sign on the door suggesting it will "return soon", although my sources tell me itís been closed for a couple of months & I donít know when that sign was put up. Ambience-wise, at least the (small) awning is still there so it did provide some temporary shelter from the torrential rain.
