About We’re all about the (craft) brew

Beer nirvana

Thank heaven we are living in the age of great beer. For years, Americans had to settle for mass-produced, bland beer options. Today however, there are thousands of craft breweries in the U.S. and the world that are creating one-of-a-kind brews featuring complex flavors and exciting ingredients. Established in 2007 and locally owned, Monks has been committed to bring the best of these craft brews home to Sioux Falls. Monks has received national recognition, having been named one of the "Hundred Best Beer Bars in America" by both Imbibe Magazine and Draft Magazine.

You don’t need to be a beer aficionado to appreciate a great beer, you just need taste buds. We look forward to welcoming you to our community of craft beer lovers.

It’s all about taste

Beer is brewed in dozens and dozens of different styles, and every brewmaster has their own personal take within those styles. Below are some examples of different styles of beer available. Take look at how diverse the craft beer world is, or better yet, visit Monks Ale House to try them for yourself.
