Northern Monk

7.4% abv

Originally brewed back in 2018. A classic hazy IPA base of oats and wheat with a touch of caramalt for sweetness and colour, we simply tweaked proportions to bring in-line with our preferred grists today. We stuck with the same hop varieties (El Dorado, Mosaic and Citra) and upped the fruit to 240g/l total and added it all post-fermentation ensuring maximum tropical intensity! Rounded out with a touch of vanilla, this is a tropical smoothie of an IPA with the tangerine, pineapple and melon notes of the hop combination riding through underneath. Collaboration with Seven Island Brewery.

Lost and Grounded - Helles

Lost and Grounded

Dark Arts

Magic Rock

Dark Arts blends four 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.

Snails Bank

A more challenging cider for the connoisseur. Again, Dabbinett apples feature highly in the blend along with other traditional bitter sweets such as Harry Masters and Ellis bitters. Not so dry as to be unpleasant, just slightly sweeter to ensure a crisp balanced cider where all the flavors really shine through.
