Craft beer continues to rapidly gain share from “big beer”, with Northern Monk helping to lead this movement. Widely recognised for its progressive approach to brewing and for fostering community and creativity through its collaborations, Northern Monk has consistently produced outstanding, internationally award-winning, beers.

Founded by Russell in 2013 from a Grade II Listed mill building in the Holbeck region of central Leeds – an area that was at the heart of the Industrial Revolution – the brand is rooted in, and celebrates the North. We’re helping Russell (and the Northern Monkhood) to continue to increase brewing capacity, build out the team, expand the Refectory bar footprint, and grow distribution.
