Beer Review: Norse Star II – Northern Monk x Lervig

I’ve had this beer kicking around for ages and kept meaning to try it, but with a Imperial Stout I feel like you need to resign yourself to having nothing else on the rest of the day! Norse Star II is the second version of a collaborative brew (which I have tried) between British craft brewing stalwarts Northern Monk and Norway’s Lervig. From what I … Continue reading Beer Review: Norse Star II – Northern Monk x Lervig

Beer Review: Eternal Haze – Northern Monk x Stigbergets

The supermarket beers that Northern Monk put out are of a consistently high quality so I was very much looking forward to giving this boozy collaboration a go. ‘Eternal Haze’ is a Double dry-hopped Double IPA at 8% ABV and is a twist on Northern Monk’s core range beer ‘Eternal’, which is a, substantially lighter, session IPA. I actually had the original on draft when … Continue reading Beer Review: Eternal Haze – Northern Monk x Stigbergets

Beer Review: Faith in Futures – Northern Monk

Today’s review is another beer that I took up with me to bonnie Scotland last week! I’ve always liked Northern Monk and they dropped a few new beers into the supermarkets a couple of months back. This one is called ‘Faith in Futures’ and it is as double dry-hopped IPA at 6.5% ABV. It’s a collaboration with artist Insa but the beer is also a … Continue reading Beer Review: Faith in Futures – Northern Monk

Beer Review: Mangoes on with Faith – Northern Monk

Over the last couple months, Northern Monk have released several new beers into both Morrisons and Tesco. It’s no secret that I’m a fan of their beers so naturally I’ve picked them all up. Today’s beer is called ‘Mangoes on with Faith’ and it is a mango pale ale. It’s a twist on the recipe of their core range beer ‘Faith’ which I reviewed many … Continue reading Beer Review: Mangoes on with Faith – Northern Monk

Beer Review: The Daily Mash 2020 Souvenir Edition – Northern Monk x The Daily Mash

A very unique beer today in the form of a collaboration. Rather than it being a collaborative beer between two breweries this commemorative brew is between one of my favourite brewers Northern Monk and the satirical online news page The Daily Mash. To commemorate (or perhaps commiserate) the year that was 2020 they brewed a 5% ABV pale ale with some of the best headlines … Continue reading Beer Review: The Daily Mash 2020 Souvenir Edition – Northern Monk x The Daily Mash

Beer Review: Northern Star – Northern Monk

I suppose I’m going to have to start drinking earlier in the day to get these snaps, it was only quarter past 4 when I took this and it was already pitch black! With the unfortunate news of London heading into Tier 4 I guess I’ll have some more free time again. Anyways, today’s review is on a core range beer from acclaimed Leeds brewers … Continue reading Beer Review: Northern Star – Northern Monk

Beer Review: Scafell – Northen Monk

Been a couple of days since my last review. The pubs are opening back up in London today so I’ve been slightly swamped at work. Today’s review is going to be from the fantastically consistent Leeds based Northern Monk. ‘Scafell’ is a NEIPA and a twist on one of their core beers ‘Striding Edge’ (which I am yet to try). Apparently a slight issue arose … Continue reading Beer Review: Scafell – Northen Monk

Beer Review: Stars & Stripes – Northern Monk

It’s Stout Sunday today, hope everyone has had a good weekend so far! Although we’ve technically got a porter and not a stout. Been a little bit since I’ve had a beer from one of my personal favourite breweries, Northern Monk. I think this has been out for a while now but I picked up ‘Stars & Stripes’ from Tesco when I went to grab … Continue reading Beer Review: Stars & Stripes – Northern Monk

Beer Review: Norse Star – Northern Monk x Lervig

Another beer from Morrisons new craft beer range and one I was desperately looking forward to trying. This is ‘Norse Star’ from the typically fantastic Northern Monk who have collaborated with Norwegian brewery Lervig (who are apparently stout brewing masters) to create this beer. This brew is a Vanilla, Cacao Imperial Stout coming in at a staggering 9% ABV. As with all Northern Monk beers … Continue reading Beer Review: Norse Star – Northern Monk x Lervig

Beer Review: Transient – Northern Monk

Morrisons have a massive new craft beer range out at the moment! At my local store I could only pick up the BrewDog and Northern Monk brews (worse problems to have I know!) but hopefully they’ll do some rotation and the other fantastic looking beers will start creeping in. There’s been a slight price bump in the beers from £3 to £3.50/£4 a can. It … Continue reading Beer Review: Transient – Northern Monk
