PINTS & UNION PORTFOLIO: Monnik beers have come to Indiana, so come to Pints&union on January 29 to taste and celebrate.


In case you were wondering, “monnik” is the Dutch word for monk. I’m guessing the brewery’s co-owner Ian Luijk probably can tell you more about it.

Monnik Beer Co. is located in the Louisville neighborhood of Schnitzelburg, and Monnik beers now are being carried in Indiana by Starlight Distribution. Next Tuesday (January 29), Pints&union will be throwing a Hoosier release gala for our pals at Monnik.

The event begins at 8:00 p.m., but these two Monnik mainstays will be on tap from the pub’s opening at 4:0 p.m.

Mild George
English Mild Ale, 4.2% abv
Toasted brown bread and dry, quaffable, low alcohol little brother of our King George.

Eagle Skull
Saison/Farmhouse Ale, 6.5% abv
Classic lemon/pepper saison yeast character; herbal hops over a light crackery malt base.

Come for the chance to enjoy Monnik brewer Scott Hand’s excellent beers, but stay a while to chat about lots of other aspects of our life and times. Speaking personally, I like just about everyone in the Louisville brewing scene, but Monnik’s owners and staff members are especially articulate, engaged and fluent in a wide variety of topics.

Tuesday, January 29 … see you there.
