If you’re into beer, you’ve probably been to Monk’s before. People come to Philadelphia from all over the country to drink beer here and, while that seems a bit dramatic to us, they do have a pretty great selection of rotating taps and over 200 bottled beers at any time. Plus, their Belgian-leaning menu is exactly what you want after a few IPAs and we’re particularly big fans of the duck salad sandwich and mussels.
