The best kind of chats with friends are those ones where you come away with your face aching from all the laughing and smiling, despite the fact you’ve been putting the world to rights about real subjects. no small talk. That’s exactly what listening to 'Why Didn’t You Tell Me' feels like - serious topics under a surface layer of fun - and that’s what Northern Monk wanted to represent in this beer. A big, fun, tropical fruit salad with a serious beer at its core. A grist of super pale barley and oats, infused with lactose, and hopped with Citra and Idaho 7 gives a juicy citrus, creamy IPA. Into that we crammed in 180g/l of fruit to really amp up the tropical flavours - using Mango, Passion Fruit, and Pineapple as a nod to Thierry, Felix, and Tinashe’s Rwandan, Malawian, and Zimbabwean backgrounds for a real cocktail of culture. This beer represents the best of their shared Bantu culture; Bantu peoples are the speakers of Bantu languages, comprising several hundred indigenous ethnic groups in Africa. These groups are spread over a vast area from Central Africa across the African Great Lakes to Southern Africa.
