Blue Monkey Brewery Established in 2008


Blue Monkey Brewery was born on the border of Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire in 2008. In 2010 we built a lovely shiny new brewery in Giltbrook where we are now capable of producing up to 20,000 pints of beer a week. This might sound like a lot, but compared with the big breweries we’re tiny.

We like to think we’re big enough though to guarantee quality and consistency, whilst still small enough to remain a tight knit team of beer enthusiasts who are fortunate enough to be able to brew the beers we love.

We now brew a dozen different types of beers including: Pale Ales, Stouts, Dark Ruby Ales, Dark Stouts, Black IPAs and more.


One of the world’s best-loved spirits, Blue Monkey has compiled a Gin collection so enticing, it’s impossible to resist.

We have carefully blended a selection of botanicals to create flavours for all tastes, from Rhubarb and Custard to Mango and Passionfruit and not forgetting our amazing Blue to Violet, which changes colour when you add your mixer.

All our gins are available in your nearest Organ Grinder Pub, from our brewery shop and many other outlets.
