There are always 12 beers on tap, 2 on cask, 2 wines and 2 ciders on tap. Dan also has 4 oak barrels that he ages beer in and serves as barrel aged specialty beers. There are seasonal beers in Dan’s rotation and lately he has been experimenting with putting habanero, jalapeno, and serrano peppers, as well as other spices in firkins of beer that is tapped and served on the counter in the English tradition.
As customers walk into the pub they will notice the ceiling full of hanging mugs. This is EagleMonk Pub and Brewery’s mug club which currently has over 1600 members. The ceiling is full with mugs being hung down the hallway. The mugs are made by 3 local potters and are available with the lifetime mug club membership for $50. Customers retrieve their mugs using a step stool, take it to the bar where it is washed and filled with their favorite beer.
Monthly events at the pub include a book club facilitated by Delta Township District Library, a Knitting and Crochet Club and a Pub Theology group. MSU football games and Detroit Tiger games are popular on the big screen TV. Dan and Sonia are very proud of EagleMonk Pub and Brewery and invite you to stop in for a visit and have a craft beer and house made pizza!
