Dark and strong. Full of sweet malt character, toffee and liquorice. Chased along by a big hard hitting bitterness with blackberry, citrus and aniseed. The sort of beer to poke you in the eye and pinch your Christmas presents!
A straw-coloured bitter which initially seems sweet, but a complex dry, hoppy taste soon predominates.
Probably the best example of the traditional Black Country style of bitter. No better partner to a lunchtime snack!
This 5.6% trans-atlantic fusion IPA is light golden in colour with tropical fruits and light caramel on the nose. The palate soon becomes assertive and resinous with the New Zealand hops balanced by the biscuit malt. The finish is aggressive and dry with the hops emerging over the warming alcohol.
This fresh, full flavour natural beer is our tribute to the classic IPAs of yester-year. The post modern twist is the addition of amazing fruity hops giving an explosion of tropical fruit flavours and a sharp bitter finish.
Vagabond Pale Ale melds citrus and tropical hop flavours with a light caramel malt base, backed up with a raucously resinous bitterness. Brewed using 100% malted barley, American hop varieties, pure Scottish water and our clean-fermenting house yeast, Vagabond is missing only one thing - Gluten.
This beer has a primary fermentation with saison yeast, then undergoes a secondary fermentation with a blend of Lactobacillus & Brettonamyces. The result is a tart, crisp, slightly sour and incredibly refreshing.
The first brew we perfected, the beer that made our name with its distinctive bitter, clean and refreshingly dry flavour. Made with only the best Maris Otter malt blended with a variety of English hops (a secret that we can never share), Butcombe Original is the classic session beer.
Magnum gives clean bitterness. Mohawk, chinook & simcoe (used in the boil, whirlpool & for dry hopping) give the beer `ipa-style` intense hop flavour. Speciality malt can give ipas a cloying palate. With IHL, we’ve kept the malt grist pale, with only a little speciality malt to balance out all of those hops. Pilsner, Munich and Carapils The result is an extremely hoppy lager that acheives our consistent aim of balance, all packed into a highly portable 330 ml can.

The concept was to create a juicy tropical beer. A brew you can sit on and drink all day, rammed with juicy malts and huge tropical aromas of mango and grapefruit. Massive additions of whole leaf American hops are added in ever increasing numbers at the end of the boil giving huge hop flavour. The beer is then dry hopped for days, driving the punchy aromas so you can smell it from miles away!
Cannonball is an India Pale Ale in the true tradition, high in alcohol and massively hopped to survive a long sea voyage. We don`t want you to wait though, take a swig and let the flavour explode on your palate. Tropically fruity, resinous hops compete against a sweet malty backbone, while a rasping bitterness builds to a mouth puckering crescendo. Our hop bomb will blow you out of the water.
Dark Arts. Surreal Stout 6% Dark Arts blends 4 malts and bags of whole hops to deliver a decadently deep and indulgent experience. A luxuriously smooth mouthfeel, is followed by spicy hop notes and full flavours of chocolate, liquorice, blackberries and figs. The finish is rich and satisfying with a lingering roasted bitterness. Our stout will convert you to the dark side.
A dank and juicy IPA using Golden Promise, wheat and Cara Munich malts in the mash for a sweetly smooth body. For the hops we judiciously bittered with Magnum in the kettle followed by Citra T90 in both the whirlpool and in dry-hopping. The aroma/flavour is fruit-filled, dank and resinous, with plenty of tropical mango giving a moreish drinkability. Fermented with our house American ale yeast (WLP001) for a refreshingly clean finish, this IPA is also our first gluten-free beer using Brewers Clarex®.
Sometimes a drink can make you feel so decadent it`s like you`re a millionaire; this beer wraps you in a velvety cocoon, dresses you in a smart suit and takes you out for a special night on the tiles.
Sweet and salty collide in this rich, balanced and smooth dessert stout. Lactose, caramel and high quality Valrhona cocoa nibs provide a chocolate and caramel backbone alongside the roasty malts whilst the Cornish Sea Salts gives a savoury salty kick, raising this beautiful beer above the norm.
Craft beer can get a bit silly and miss the point. Usually what we want is something purely enjoyable to drink, not a curiosity beverage to tick off. We were asked by our Italian friends if we would ever consider such a a simple request. This is that beer. No unicorn hair, solar dust or celebrity nail clippings. Pontificate if you must, but please just drink and enjoy. Salute!
The American-bred Citra hops made its splash into the industry with a bang, taking over the craft brewing scene by storm with its otherworldly tropical fruit flavour and aroma. Northern Monk`s take on this juicy hop takes the best of its exceptional characteristics to brew a bold yet balanced IPA. A simple base of British pale malt is coloured by small kettle additions of their UK and US hops blend for a soft, fruity bitterness. Come dry hopping time, they hit high gear with 16kg of Citra spread over three additions, layering them into the beer for the ultimate juicy, resinous taste experience and an aroma of tropical fruit that lures your olfactory sense from across the room.
