It was great to get some of our friends together to celebrate Northern Monk opening in Manchester. We wanted the collaboration to be more than just a beer though, more a reflection of the city so we asked everyone to suggest an ingredient or approach that would make the beer quintessentially Manchester. For this, we teamed up with Cloudwater, Track Brewing, Manchester Marble Brewery, Blackjack and Runaway Brewery. We discussed the city’s pride in its history as a key international trading post and decided to reflect this with a global selection of hop varieties covering Australia (Enigma), New Zealand (Nelson Sauvin), America (Mosaic and Columbus) and Europe (Styrian Cardinal). The base beer is a classic golden pale ale in true Mancunian style, with gentle up front bitterness and layers of gooseberry, passion fruit, sherbet, and citrus fruit courtesy of our international hop profile.
