21st Amendment Hell or High Watermelon
Unfiltered, American-style wheat beer. Brewed w/ 400 pounds of fresh watermelons; Taste is wheat w/ an increasing note of watermelon. 4, 9%abv
Aegir Julebrygg
aka Aegir Skumring Dubbel (Dunkel brun farve med lyst skum. Lukt av mye og kraftig god malt. Mye god malt, frukt og toffee), a traditional abbey beer. Light brown color, medium heavy w/ a flavor of dried fruits & spices from the yeast. Malty, sweet, juicy, pine in aroma, nice roast in flavor. 7%abv
Chimay Cinq Cents
Rich, spicy blonde Tripel (also known as Chimay White), dry herbaceous finish. Brewed on the grounds of a Trappist Monastary (in the Ardennes Mtns). The hoppiest of their three offerings. Since 1862 the Cistercian Trappist monks of Chimay have been developing the production of Trappist beers (and cheeses!). 8%abv
Dupont avec les bons Voeux
Since 1970, Dupont has brewed a special beer to give as a New Year's present to their best clients. (the full name of this beer is "Avec les bons Voeux de la brasserie Dupont", meaning "With the best wishes of the Dupont brewery"). Crafted on a dry-hopped base, coppery blond, very fine hop aromas & tastes bitter, lots of dried fruit & mild. Medium to full body. Hops & bit of citrus in the finish. Great balance. Arguably the best Holiday Ale made in Belgium. 9, 5% abv.
Flying Dog Dogtoberfest
This lager draws its influence from the Vienna Marzen or Oktoberfest style. It is rich & malty- made w/ 5 premium malts- w/ a sweet aroma & deep mahogany color, an intriguing caramel finish & brewed w/ 100% imported German ingredients for a true German flavor. 5, 5%abv

Smuttynose Star Island Single
Abbey Single/Blonde Ale, 5, 4%abv, very sessionable- slightly floral & spicy, hazy golden, dry & herbal; drinks quite well.

Great breakfast but we couldn't order the Belgian waffle because they don't have REAL butter! We would have paid extra for it and also for the REAL maple syrup that goes with it! The coffee was weak, also.

This cafe was very busy when we arrived, however we only waited around 15mins for a table. Staff were knowledgeable about the food and ingredients; they were able to help me select gluten free options.

Breakfast is THE meal there. The waffles are an absolute MUST. Combine one with a Danish sausage and you've got the best breakfast in town, IMHO.
