Gridskipper.com: The Best Beer Bars In NYC

Posted in News and Events with tags , , on October 28, 2008 by flyingbroccoli

Gridskipper.com, The Worldwide Travel Blog, did a profile on the Best Beer Bars in NYC yesterday, and Burp Castle was, of course, one of them! They had some nice things to say about us, although some of the details are not 100% accurate:

Burp Castle has a hilarious name, but it also has a mind-boggling selection of Belgian beers. The idea of the place is that you’re entering a holy environment, a “temple … of beer worship,” and you should drink and act accordingly. You’ll find dark wooden “pew” booths, large oil paintings, Gregorian chants, and robed servers speaking in passionate yet hushed tones about the more than 500 beers on offer. It’s a small space that gets crowded quickly, so arrive early and maintain patience at all times. Your beer prayers will be answered.

Cheers, and thanks!

Village Voice Best of 2008

Posted in News and Events with tags , on October 18, 2008 by flyingbroccoli

Village Voice just came out with their Best of New York City 2008 Reader’s Polls, and Burp Castle just happen to rank in the Eats and Treats category. Burp Castle is the Best Belgian Establishment! Check out what they have to say:

At the risk of alienating Belgians, it seems their most important culinary contributions have been frites and beer. Get them both at the aptly named Burp Castle. On Sundays, Mondays, and Wednesdays, the bartenders serve free fries from Pommes Frites along with scores of Belgian beers.

Thank you, and Cheers!
