Time Out says

If you're stuck in the Loop and looking for a place to get a good beer, you can't beat Monk's Pub. For more than 40 years, this cavernous tavern set beneath the "L" has cornered the market on medieval dives. Beyond the heavy doors that seem to hide a monastery, you’ll find a menu packed with Trappist and Belgian beers, as well as the latest creations from a variety of local breweries. Plus, your table comes with a complimentary basket of peanuts (feel free to throw your shells on the floor) that you can snack on before you dig into the menu of fairly-standard pub grub.
