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/
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!
