About Their Beers
Naughty Monk is a micro brewery and taproom brewing a variety of choices beyond just IPAs to also include Belgian style ales like dubbels, triples and quads which monks were known for brewing. While most craft breweries tend to focus on the hoppier beers, there are many beer drinkers who will appreciate the Belgian and other European style ales that Naughty Monk offers, including their award-winning dubbel. Hop-heads will enjoy Naughty Monk's flagship IPA and APA that are always on draught, as well as rotating variations of new IPA and other pale ale styles across their 24 taps. Since hiring Head Brewer Curtis their selection of beer styles has continued to expand.
