Northern Monk has produced two new beers called Sunday Roast and Jam Roly Poly.

Sunday Roast, a 5.7% ABV brown ale, was brewed with Aunt Bessie’s Yorkshire puddings and roast potatoes, which were added to the mash tun.

The 5% ABV Jam Roly Poly, meanwhile, is a ‘jam and custard pale ale’ made using the ingredients in Aunt Bessie’s frozen puddings, including plum, apricot and strawberry.

Commenting on the collaboration, founder of Northern Monk, Russell Bisset, said: “It’s been an honour working with Aunt Bessie’s, a truly iconic Northern brand. There’s nothing quite like a Sunday Roast with all the trimmings.

“We’ve worked together to create something that’s never been done before, and we hope that it brings some well-needed positivity to the nation.”

Sam Dolan, head of marketing at Aunt Bessie’s, added: ‘There’s nothing like coming together with loved ones over a roast dinner and a cold beer, and so to join forces with a fellow Northern brand to create something which has never been done before is really special.

“We’re sure Aunt Bessie’s fans are going to love the combination of a two-course roast dinner beer and as we celebrate Aunt Bessie’s 25th birthday this year, what better way to mark the occasion?”

Cans cost £3.50 each or £6 for a two-course dinner two-pack.

Earlier this year, British baking firm Warburtons teamed up with experienced bread brewers Toast Ale to make a beer with leftover, crusty crumpets.

Cereal giant Kellogg’s has also ventured into brewing, partnering with Salford-based brewery Seven Bro7hers in 2018 to create a beer made with cornflakes that were either too big, too small or overcooked to make it through quality control.
