Our January BEER OF THE MONTH happens to be the top selling beer in the world - Heineken!  We use their patented Brew Lock Draft system for the best possible taste & freshness, serve it up in 20oz glasses, and for the entire month it's only $4.50.  Plus on every Manchester United gameday it drops another 50¢.  Enjoy!

In the spirit of the season, here's a message from our general manager and longtime Barrington resident Joel Brady:


To my Fellow Barrington Citizens and all our Patrons,


Allow me to take the time to thank you for your continued support and patronage in 2016. It has been an absolute pleasure to serve you - we are humbled by your support. Without each of you, we could not have been able to grow and better serve our community.


In the Irish culture the term “Pub” is short for “Public House”. The “Public House” is a special place in the town designed to be welcoming, friendly and always helpful. In a way, it’s a place that is meant to exemplify the spirit of the holidays all year round. And I can assure you that our goal is to make you all feel comfortable and satisfied with every visit.  So, on behalf of all the family and staff at McGonigal’s Pub, let me wish you a joyful Holiday Season and  Happy New Year. And remember no matter how cold it is outside, there is always a hot meal, a cold drink, and warm smile waiting for you at the “Public House”.


Happy Holidays & Season’s Greetings from the entire staff and family at McGonigal’s Pub.

Our Beer of the Month for December is Domaine DuPage French Country Ale, brewed by the local Two Brothers Brewing Company.  Their Flagship beer is amber in color, with a toasty, sweet caramel start and a finish with just enough hops to clean off the palate. Enjoy $4 drafts of this fine beverage all month long!
