About Us

Northern Monkey Brew Co is an award winning Micro Brewery based in Bolton.  We started trading in 2016 and like to brew both traditional cask ales alongside more adventurous, hop forward craft keg beers.  With a passion for making sure every beer we brew tastes awesome, we have slowly built a loyal customer base over the North West of England who know they won't be disappointed when they pour our beers through their taps.  Check out our core beers below!  If you are interested in trying out any of our cask ales or keg beers in the near future, simply fill in the contact form at the bottom of the page with your enquiry and any questions that you may have.  We'd love to have you on board!  We deliver directly to most areas in the North West on a weekly basis.  For any customers further afield, we do sell our beers online with and also work with a local courier who deliver to our customers on our behalf.  We also love to host lots of cool events at our taproom at the weekends and have our own mobile bar that pops up at lots of festivals during the year and is available to hire at your own special occasion.  Take a look around the rest of our website to see what we're all about!
