The Evolution of Tradition
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 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.
