Hey everyone! Happy Sunday! – hows your weekend been/going? We have a treat for you today, oh yes! We’re meeting Seb! With humble begingings a ukele tracher, Seb has been with us since the start leading the brewery team and writing up the recipes to your favourite beers! Without further ado, lets meet Seb!
How did you come to work North?
I was my own part time brewery called Golden Owl and I wanted to make it more a full time job. Alfred Bar was my regular watering hole at the time and I was told by one of the staff members that North Bar wanted to set up a brewery. So they put me in contact with John and Christian and I convinced them that they might want to take me on as North’s head brewer, the rest is history!
What was your first memorable beer experience?
I used to drink my dad’s french lager stubbies occasionally… I remember drinking Guinness once when I was about 14 and thinking it was disgusting and I had a whole can. But I think the first time I started enjoying beer and thinking I was a real conuiser was when I used to drink Caledonian Deuchars IPA when I was in my late teens, I felt like that was pretty classy, that was my go to beverage. Then there was Tanglefoot by Badger Beers. I remember when I went to Beer Ritz and got myself a Saison Brasserie Dupont and that was very exciting to drink.
What have you been listening to lately?
NTS Radio is my go to, poolside and all the expansions. I enjoy Hardcore History by Dan Carlin, thats my favourite podcast.
Where is your favourite spot for a drink?
I think I’d probably say in my back garden on a warm summer’s evening, grilling a nice cut of lamb for a shish kebab whilst drinking some Rheinbacher Aldi lager.
