The best bar in El Paso. Has a wide slection of beer from around the world. Canít giv an exact number to either bottles or drafts as they are always changing. There is an outdoor patio for smokers and is heated by space heaters in the winter. In addition to their awesome beer selection they have scotch, wine, cigars, and a recently added kitchen. The staff are cool and there is a club you can join called the hoptimus. Every time you drink 3 different beers you havenít had at the hoppy monk you earn points. The membership cost $18 and comes with a card to keep track of your brews and a hoppy monk t-shirt which has the h.s. thompson quote, "good people drink good beer". The lighting inside is dim and there is loud music. However, the bar never really gets so loud that it becomes annoying like a club would. Mostly a chill and relaxed place to enjoy the best beer in the world. My favorite place to hang out in el paso!

Out in the West Texas town of El Paso
I fell in love with a Mexican girl.
Night-time would find me in Rosaís cantina;
Music would play and Felina would whirl.
Blacker than night were the eyes of Felina,
Wicked and evil while casting a spell.
My love was deep for this Mexican maiden;
I was in love but in vain, I could tell.
One night a wild young cowboy came in,
Wild as the West Texas wind.
Dashing and daring,
A drink he was sharing
With wicked Felina,
The girl that I loved.
Back in El Paso my life would be worthless.
Everythingís gone in life; nothing is left.
Itís been so long since Iíve seen the young maiden
My love is stronger than my fear of death.
I saddled up and away I did go,
Riding alone in the dark.
A bullet may find me.
Tonight nothingís worse than this
Pain in my heart.
And at last here I
Am on the hill overlooking El Paso;
I can see Rosaís cantina below.
My love is strong and it pushes me onward.
Down off the hill to Felina I go.
Off to my right I see five mounted cowboys;
Off to my left ride a dozen or more.
Shouting and shooting I canít let them catch me.
I have to make it to Rosaís back door.
Something is dreadfully wrong for I feel
A deep burning pain in my side.
Though I am trying
To stay in the saddle,
Iím getting weary,
Unable to ride.
But my love for
Felina is strong and I rise where Iíve fallen,
Though I am weary I canít stop to rest.
I see the white puff of smoke from the rifle.
I feel the bullet go deep in my chest.
From out of nowhere Felina has found me,
Kissing my cheek as she kneels by my side.
Cradled by two loving arms that Iíll die for,
One little kiss and Felina, good-bye.
.............................................and now Iím going to the Hoppy Monk where I can get a nice pint of regional, national, and international quality brew served in a friendly, unpretentious environment playing nice music. A town worthy of the best Western ballad ever sang also deserves a nice beer bar, El Paso is an interesting place :)

HANDS DOWN the best beer place your going to see on I-10 between San Antonio and Tucson. 65 taps, ranging from basic texas micros (real ale, st arnold), bigger micros (rogue, Stone, Dogfish head, North Coast) to Belgians on tap. The atmosphere is great-friendly people and defnately good to see a good beer bar in what has been such a beer wasteland town. El Paso maybe behind the times, but this place is definately fantastic. It feels to be moddled after flying saucer and/or gingermans. I love to go to this place.
