When we moved to NYC two and a half years ago, the Burp Castle on Seventh Street in the East Village was the first craft beer bar we went to. A recommendation from our friend Phoebe, the bar serves all Belgian style beers, and even some meads. It’s a comfortable bar, medieval themed and reasonably quiet, which is due in part to the fact that if the noise gets to a certain level, the bartenders shush everyone. When you get a little tipsy after a few of the high-alcohol brews, this becomes very funny. Be sure to inspect the paintings on the walls of monks in various states of inebriation, they’re pretty funny too. The Burp Castle, with its cute name, will always have a soft spot in our hearts.
