Monarch Brewing Company came to life over a couple of pints of homebrew in a kitchen here in Monticello. Our plans for a brewpub were underway but we needed a name. We agreed to call it “Monarch” in honor of the official butterfly of Illinois and also for the Monarch’s distinguishable colors that are resemblant in our beers.
Our kitchen and brewery are located in the basement of the building. This is where we make all of your food and beer fresh every day. We currently brew on a 3.5 barrel (BBL) system and serve all of our beer in-house only. Someday we plan to distribute our beer but for now, our focus is on serving the best beer possible to our guests here at Monarch.
We hope Monarch becomes a gathering place for your friends and family to enjoy. Show Less
