Burp Castle is probably the world’s only monastery-themed bar—complete with paintings of monks on the walls, bartenders in monk’s robes and vaguely monk-ish music playing in the background. The bar is as well known for its beer selection—with a dozen foreign and domestic beers on tap—as it is for its quiet conduct policy, wherein bartenders and patrons alike will shush you if you stop using your indoor voice.
