All About Humble Monk Brewing
Humble Monk is a bootstrapped brewery that was founded by Father and Son Mike and Paul Kemp. That means that when they opened their big, warehouse style taproom in Northside, they did it without some of the bells and whistles that other “more funded” breweries might have had when their doors opened up. That doesn’t mean that it’s not well thought out, though. The taproom is warm, comfortable, and plays off the theme of their brewery extremely well.
Their beers are Belgian-forward – but easy drinking and tasty… again, perfect for the taproom that they’ve created.
What To Expect From Humble Monk
Between their 8 or so taps at a time, you and your friends will definitely find a nice variety of beer when you stop. As I mentioned above, the atmosphere is warm and inviting – the sort of place that is perfect to shelter yourself in during a cold night – or to settle in for a few pints on a warm summer evening.
The bar and seating is all warm wood, with repurposed church pews taking a star role in the design and old wood cable spool tables reminding you that they put a lot of this together without a massive budget.
