Mr. B's Pub Unveils New Fall Menu

Mr. B’s Pub in Royal Oak is rolling out a new fall menu with tasty dishes inspired largely by requested features from fans.

Owner Johnny Prep  visited the Fox2 Studios kitchen Sunday morning and shared the recipe for his signature beer cheese sauce that’s perfect  for  gameday snacking.

Watch the video above and follow along with the recipe. 


Mr. B's Beer Cheese Sauce


  • 5 tablespoons salted butter
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups dark beer
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons minced onion
  • 1/4 cup minced garlic
  • 4 cups heavy cream
  • 1 sprig fresh thyme
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 3/4 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese (about 3 ounces)
  • 3/4 cup grated Swiss cheese (about 3 ounces)
  • 4 slices American cheese (about 3 ounces)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground white pepper


  1. Heat butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat.
  2. When melted, add flour and cook, stirring continuously, until roux starts to turn golden brown about 3 minutes.
  3. Add onion and garlic and cook, stirring, until soft, about 2 minutes.
  4. Add beer, bring to a high simmer, and continue to cook until beer is reduced by half, 4 to 5 minutes.
  5. Add cream, thyme, and bay leaf and bring to a simmer, stirring often to prevent boiling over. Continue to simmer until sauce thickens considerably, about 10 minutes.
  6. Remove from heat and discard thyme sprig and bay leaf.


To celebrate the new menu's arrival, Mr. B’s is offering a few specials this week.

Starting today through Thursday, patrons can purchase one entrée and get a second one half off; and they’re hosting a Halloween costume party on Friday with a special Hawaii vacation giveaway.
