Mudpuppy Festival

27 January 2018 2:00 PM – 5:00 PM
Location: Monarch Brewing Company, 212 South Independence Street, Monticello, Illinois, United States

Monarch Brewing Company and the Land Conservation Foundation are hosting the first annual Mudpuppy Festival on Saturday, January 27 from 2-5 pm. What is a Mudpuppy you ask? Well, they are an endangered species of salamander that sound like a puppy barking when on land. And, we have them right here in Monticello on the Sangamon River.

Check out this YouTube video to see one in action.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5pcuKcGZ8ns

We are brewing a special Mudpuppy Chocolate Milk Stout, offering a Mudpuppy themed appetizer menu and providing a wide variety of kid's activities. The Land Conservation Foundation will give a short presentation on their activities to help the Mudpuppy and there will be a 50/50 raffle. A portion of the proceeds will go to the Land Conservation Foundation.

More details to come in early January!
