We have a new spin on our Brewhouse Nachos. Now you can now have them with Queso Con Carne on top if you choose. It is house made cheese dip loaded with smokey chorizo sausage, bell peppers, onions and jalapenos on top fresh tortilla chips. Then covered with diced tomatoes, onions and topped with sour cream guacamole & jalapenos.
Soup of the Day is Lentil and Ham.

If you are interested in getting into the lottery, come on out tonight to the ROB and we will buy you a free pint of beer as you wait to see if your name gets drawn.

Royal Club membership costs $100.00 annually and gets you:

• A metallic, etched membership card with your name and your year(s) of membership.
• An etched Royal Club schooner glass. You will be the only one to use your glass during the year. Royal Club glass fills will be at our special “Royal Club” price.
• During the first week of each month, you will have access to a special Royal Brew which will be produced for Royal Club members ONLY. Nobody else will be allowed to drink this beer.
• Once a month, you can bring a friend in to drink with you. During this visit, your friend will also drink out of a Royal Club schooner glass at Royal Club prices.
• During the month of your Birthday, you will be allowed to pick a day to come in and drink out of your Royal Club schooner glass for free to celebrate. This does not have to be your exact birthday!
• If you arrive at the Royal Oak Brewery and we are on a wait, simply present your membership card. You will receive the Royal Treatment and be moved to the top of the waiting list for parties of up to four (4) people. Please note that this does not guarantee immediate seating.
• A once a year exclusive party thrown for all Royal Club members on our Biergarten Patio. We will provide some food and exclusive Royal Club beer specials.

You MUST be present to be eligible and you MUST have the money to pay for their membership at the time of the drawing. No exceptions.
