About us

Northern Monkey Brew Co was founded in 2016 by Ryan Bailey and Liam Convey, with the addition of some Southern Flare in Kevin Barber a couple of years later.  A passion for drinking real ale, that progressed into home brewing and then eventually "lets build a brewery!"  Years of planning, building and practice runs followed and some seriously understanding partners.  We have gained some fantastic local customers and continue to sell further and further afield, at present selling independently throughout the North West.

We have had some fantastic success at a local and National level, with multiple awards for our beers, notably SIBA National Silver in the dark beers category for our 6% Chocolate Treacle Porter, Underdog.  We also boast CAMRA accolades including 2019 Bolton Winter Pub of the Season, 2020 Bolton Pub of the Year.  2019 saw the release of the cult hit, Film Club! Our incredibly unique but completely delectable popcorn stout.

Our aims and ambitions remain the same as the day we first started and that is to make great beer and take great pride in representing our Northern heritage, and of course to serve the greatest beers at our Brewery Tap.
