About Northern Monk Brew Co

Since the 7th century AD monks across the whole of Europe have produced and sold beer, life-sustaining, thirst quenching beer. In 1086, the Domesday book records the brewing of almost 70,000 gallons of ale by monks, whilst Fountains Abbey in Yorkshire once brewed 60 barrels of strong ale every 10 days.
Like the monks before us, Northern Monk is committed to creating the highest quality beers combining the best of traditional monastic brewing values with a progressive approach to ingredients and techniques. Homed in a Grade II listed mill in the spiritual heart of the industrial revolution, Northern Monk takes thousands of years of brewing heritage and tradition and combines them with the best of both local and internationally sourced ingredients, crafting beers to excite, to savour, to taste and to remember… True North

A porter based on Northern Monk’s popular pale ale of the same name, made in collaboration with York Cocoa House. The beer mimics a dark version of classic Neapolitan ice cream, with flavours of cherries, pistachio and chocolate. If only ice cream vans could deliver this.

This beer tastes too good for words. Just joking. Description coming soon.

For this Twist, Northern Monk brewed a soured version of their flagship New World IPA. They introduced Citra to the existing hop bill of Simcoe, Chinook and Ekuanot and added lemon juice for an extra juicy sting of zing.

Patrons Projects are this Leeds brewery’s one-of-a-kind collaborations showcasing local creative talents. This latest at the time of writing/drinking is a hefty single hopped mosaic black IPA with bonus sweet tastes of blueberry.

The third instalment of the brewery’s ‘Northern Heroes Series’ with illustrator Ben Mather; and this time with the Manchester brethren at Track Brewing Co. This juice monster of an IPA is packed with Citra, Enigma, Denali and Vic Secret. Expect sherbet, pineapple, plenty of juicy citrus and a great looking can.

To create this 10% ABV decadence in a can, Northern Monk have taken their deeply roasted signature Russian imperial stout, Strannik, adding golden syrup and Demerara sugar to ramp up the sticky toffee vibes. Hitting rich and warming dessert notes, it’s an ideal companion for the cold, dark winter evenings we are oh so familiar with.

Northen Monk’s second double dry hopped Patrons Project lager released in collaboration with photographer Reece Leung. Citra steps up to the plate and delivers big on satisfying and clean citrus flavours. Smashable.

A big, juicy modern pale ale packed with tropical, citrus fruit and pine flavours.

Northern Monk’s take on the classic Belgian witbier riffs on the style’s characteristic spice profile and takes it all the way back to the motherland of spices. Focus your senses and savour the harmonious algorithm of ginger, cardamom and coriander with your favourite curry.

A simple malt base of Pale malt to take the beer up to 7.2%, then small kettle additions of US and UK hops for a soft fruity bitterness. Come dry hopping time Northern Monk go for it. 16kg of Citra spread over three additions are layered into the beer for the ultimate juicy, resinous taste experience and an aroma of tropical fruit you can smell across the room.

Coffee flavours in dark beer are always a glittering combination. Northern Star Mocha Porter takes this to another level, as Northern Monk blend in ground coffee beans to the brew, full of bitterness and hazelnut hints, along with rich dark chocolate and milk sugar to balance this full bodied dark ale. A collaboration with Leeds’ North Star Coffee Micro Coffee Roasters, Northern Star will guide you to a new taste experience.

The hit of a heavily hopped IPA, with the sessionability of a classic UK pale ale. Simcoe and Centennial hops dominate this light blonde beer, contributing a big tangerine aroma and long, quenching citrus pith flavour which goes on and on and on.

A descendent of October beer, India Pale Ale is now one of the most popular styles in the world. Most famously brewed in the 1700s by Hodgson’s Bow Brewery in London and exported to India by the East India Company. This beer has been through a 300 year evolution. New World IPA uses a combination of US, Australian and British hop varieties and is inspired by the hop ratios and techniques originally used.
