Morrisons are selling cans of Northern Monk beer made with real Jam Roly Polys, and we are just a little bit obsessed.
The UK supermarket first teamed up with Aunt Bessie’s and local Leeds brewery Northern Monk to sell the iconic brews in 2022, and it is sure to hit the nostalgia meters of roly-poly lovers up and down the country.
The one-of-a-kind Northern Monk beer left some fans skeptical at first, leading the team to put out a statement reassuring drinkers it wasn’t an April Fool last year.
Sharing the news on social media, Aunt Bessie’s wrote at the time: “NEW. This was no April fool, we have once again reunited with our favourite brewery.
“@NMBCo to bring you the UK’s only Jam & Custard Pale Ale, back by popular demand and based on our Aunt Bessie’s fan favourite: Jam Roly Poly
✨NEW✨ This was no April fool, we have once again reunited with our favourite brewery @NMBCo to bring you the UK’s only Jam & Custard Pale Ale, back by popular demand and based on our Aunt Bessie’s fan favourite: Jam Roly Poly 🍓

“Available to buy exclusively at @Morrisons.”
Priced at just £3 for a 330ml can, it’s also proving quite the steal amongst Northern Roly Poly lovers and comes as part of a pack of four.
Also included in the 4.5% ABV four pack is a Roast Dinner Brown Ale, Apple Crumble and Custard Pale Ale, and a Sticky Toffee Pudding Porter.
Shoppers can also pick up a single 440ml of the Apple Crumble and Custard Pale Ale. The four pack is £5.50 and the single can £2.50 in Morrisons.
Aunt Bessie’s is well known for its freezer tea classics, which span its famous Yorkshire Puddings as well as lesser-known items like chips and fries, meat joints, roasted potatoes, dumplings, and stuffing.
The company has previously collaborated with Northern Monk in the past to deliver a Yorkshire Pudding beer, too, although there is sadly no suggestion of it making a reappearance any time soon.
However, another Yorkshire brewery in Malton does sell a cracking Yorkshire Pudding beer if you find yourself hankering for a taste this weekend.
Made with real Yorkshires, these are soaked in Malton Brewery’s secret selection of Malts in the Mash Tun to imbue the beer with the ultimate Yorkshire flavour.
Once that has happened the team then adds in a blend of special hops to form the second part of the Yorkshire Pudding Beer, with every single bottle containing half a Yorkshire pudding.
