Blood Youth have revealed that they have worked with the wonderful Northern Monk on their own beer.
It's called 'Visions Of Another Ale' and is the darkest IPA that the brewery has ever made, clocking in at 9%, whilst also being light and smooth. With fruity tropical flavours and rich vibrant aromas, it's an absolute beast.
Northern Monk had this to say about it:
"Northern Monk and Blood Youth were born at a similar time in a similar place. We made beer, Blood Youth made music… In 2021 our journeys have been given the opportunity to unite again. Building on a history of celebrating the best of the North’s rock and metal scene, we’re delighted to welcome them to the Patrons Projects series, taking the gold edition of our Northern sounds project. The resulting beer is a heavily hopped, tropical, Imperial Black IPA. A fitting tribute. Not just celebrating with a beer, we’re stoked to welcome the band to play at our home and original brewery on the 25th of November."
And guitarist Chris Pritchard added this:
"I never actually thought we'd ever have our own beer, and thanks to Northern Monk we can now tick that off the list. We've been working closely with the beer scientists behind the company coming up with unique ideas and our own creative spin on what we think represents the dynamics of the band, and also across our new album Visions Of Another Hell. There's a lot of evil, a lot of negativities. But without the negative, there will never be a positive. So, we made the creative decision to make this IPA the blackest of the black, but bringing everything back up with the tropical/pineapple aromas. We discussed a few different approaches but after months of going back and forth, we finally created something beautifully evil. Behold, the first Blood Youth beer. Our Visions Of Another Ale. Drink responsibly."
The band are also going to be playing a special show at the brewery, where you can taste the beer for the first time, on November 25. You can pick up a ticket from right HERE
