A northern venture

When beer buyer Freddy Bulmer asked if I'd like to visit Northern Monk brewery with him, I thought it would be rude to say no!

It was great to get first-hand experience of the craft brewing world which is causing quite a stir at the moment and the Northern Monk team really seem to embody everyone’s image of craft brewers. It was also great to be involved in an exciting new joint venture with them.
