derived it's name from a monastery where the owner resided one summer as a young boy. So impressed with his stay, he thought to himself if I ever own a public house, I'm going to call it Monk's! May of 1978, his boyhood dream became a reality when he acquired a public house in Chicago called Monk's Pub.

“No matter how full your life may seem, there's always room for a couple of beers."
~A Wise Philosophy Professor
"Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, "It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver."
"In dog beers I’ve only had one.”
