HopMonk Beer Garden - Friday August 8, 2014

hopmonk beergarden-smNews Flash: Beer Garden in Novato

Stop the presses. In Novato they have a garden... a garden with beer. This amazing garden is located in the Rowland Plaza, near Target, at a place called the Hopmonk Tavern. I wonder if they have any beer seeds.

Forgive, me. I digress. Miracle Mule has been invited to play the outdoor stage at the Hopmonk Novato Beer Garden. This venue is wonderful. In fact I just saw a great show there last night. The sound was great, the food was delicious and the beer was beer (cold and good!)

This is a free show, so pop on in, grab a seat, order up a drink and grab some dinner. Then sit down and get your swampy tonk on!

   * Free
   * Hopmonk Novato, Rowland Plaza
   * Friday, August 8, 5pm - 8pm

This is a restaurant, so all ages are welcome. Cross your fingers for a warm Summer night.




Hopmonk Tavern - Session Room - Saturday, August 29

hopmonk 8-29-14b-smSpecial Double Bill: Buck & Mule!

Miracle Mule is confused and excited at the same time. We are excited to be invited back to play the Hopmonk Tavern AGAIN! And we are confused how they could possibly keep making the same mistake. 

This show is going to be extra special because we have the honor to share the stage with an amazing country performer, Buck Nickels & Loose Change. If you haven't heard these guys before, you should catch this show. They are the real deal.

The show will kick off at 8pm with Buck Nickels & Loose Change, followed by a heaping portion of Miracle Mule. Because this is a big show for us we are working on some exciting things, including new songs, some audience participation, and even more nonsense. 

   * $12 Advance. $15 at the door
   * Hopmonk Tavern, Novato
   * Saturday, August 29, 8pm

Thank you. Please forgive any typos in the News Flash. It is hard to type with hooves.


  • This one is easy. They are awesome. You won’t be disappointed. We had a power outage in the middle of our event, they switched over to acoustic instruments and still “rocked the house”.

  • What a well-crafted and fun set of songs! Songs like Swampy Tonkin' are just plain made for shuffling your feet.
