Northern Monk launched in 2013 and is now homed in a Grade II listed mill in Leeds. Like the Monks before, Northern Monk takes thousands of years of brewing heritage and tradition, combining them with the best of local and internationally sourced ingredients. The results are fantastic from traditional offerings to more progressive beers typified by their ongoing Patrons Project releases.
'On Mikkel’s recommendation, we got in touch with the fantastic Copenhagen-based Coffee Collective. They supplied us with their Kenyan Kieni beans, roasted to an espresso specification to bring out some extra sweetness and gentle bitterness alongside notes of caramel, liquorice, dark berry, and rhubarb. The base stout is brewed with a high portion of Château Chocolate malt, backed up by touches of chocolate rye and roast barley to add a touch of more intense roast character to the back end. Rounded out with flaked oats, we also used a range of crystal malts to bring out hints of dark berry and dashes of sticky toffee, then further bulked out the body with maltodextrin, and finally whirlpool hopped with mosaic'.
