In terms of what's available for you in the run up to Saturday evening, Northern Monk's founder and director, Brian Dickson furnished us with some information:
"There’s an offer on 6-packs of our new Great Northern Lager on the webshop currently and we’re doing some introductory mixed packs entitled ‘into the haze’ and ‘northern heroes’ made up of some of our core beers, which might be good introductions to NM for any newbies. The latest Patrons release is “Déjà vu”, a peach and apricot sour in the Lucy Ketchin series, which was brewed by distant collaboration with Garage (Barcelona), Frontaal (NL) and Pastore Brewing."
There will also be a launch the first couple of beers in the new OFS series - some unique, experimental beers brewed on Northern Monk's original Old Flax Store kit. So far they have the following lined up; OFS 000 which is a coconut imperial stout and 001 which is a mango & cacao sour.
For that ever important playlist, put together by the LBC Committee and a hefty slice from the Northern Monk crew, here is the link: Right Here!!

Have yourself a Twitter account ideally, sign in, make sure you’re following our account and look out for tweets using the hashtag ‘#livebeerpub’. We’ll be around to have a chat about all things beery or otherwise, plenty of the LBC Committee will be around hopefully to have a chat. We can provide information on what you can do to provide support to Merseyside (or other) breweries and pubs during this difficult time. Get hold of some lovely beers (especially any from our Merseyside brewers!) from a local bottle shop, via delivery from a pub or brewery or take advantage of growler/package fills as appropriate.
For nationwide, the teamwork from Art By Volume and #CraftBeerHour has given us these resources: List [https://www.craftbeerhour.com/where-to-buy-beer-remotely] and a handy UK Map [http://abvstudio.co.uk/beer-map]. The crew over at Brewer's Eye also have a handy map and handle on what is going on with their App.
Grab your beer, take a photo of it, talk about it and interact with like minded people in lieu of bumping into them in our pubs, bottle shops and brewery taps. We will be kicking things off at 7pm if people want to join us (until 11pm or so).
See you all on Twitter at 7pm on Saturday 23rd May.
