Northern Monk

About Northern Monk

Background

Northern Monk are no doubt one of the leading lights of the UK craft brewing scene. Hailing from Leeds, they began in 2013 in a cellar, combining traditional monastic brewing traditions with modern ingredients and techniques. They’ve since moved to a Grade II listed mill, where they’ve been producing some of the UK’s favourite craft beers like Faith Pale Ale, Eternal Session IPA and, the HonestBrew Beer of the Year 2020, Striding Edge Light IPA. When they’re not whipping up sensational core beers, Northern Monk are often to be found pushing the boundaries of craft brewing with projects like their incredible brew at the top of Ben Nevis, and their amazing collaborative Patrons Project, which works with artists, sportsmen, musicians and people from all walks of life to create new and exciting beers.
