North Brewing Co wouldn’t be where it is today without the incredible people throughout the business running the brewery, supporting the business and selling the beer! Over the next few months we’re going to be introducing you all to those staff!
We’re going to start with our cheeky Greeky Dionisis (Dennis)! Someone who has become an integral part of the workplace, a total sweet heart and (coincidentally) has a massive sweet tooth. If you’re in the brewery, chances are he’ll be asking “Do you have anything sweet for me?”
So without further a do, here’s a little info about Dennis! If you ever see him in the wild, his favourite desert is a chocolate cupcake (or a stout.) 😉
WHAT IS YOUR ROLE AT NORTH BREWING CO?
Senior Brewer and Quality Assurance Lead. I keep records of our brew house efficiencies, yeast attenuation, finding new ways to develop and improve our quality and volumes, making sure all our beer is meeting the quality people come to expect from North.
HOW DID YOU COME TO WORK AT NORTH?
It’s quite simple, North were my favourite UK brewery, I’d wanted to work for them for some time so when a job at North came up back in 2018, I applied and now here I am!
FAVOURITE NORTH BREWING CO BEER?
Tricky one mate, there a loads I love… probably the NZ IPA we brewed with Parrotdog that was delicious.
WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST MEMORABLE BEER EXPERIENCE?
I remember trying Rogue Ales & Spirits Mocha Porter in a big bottle shop I was working in in Athens called Sorry Mom Liquor Store . It was the first dark beer I tried that wasn’t Guiness and I was blown away. Me and dark beer have been in love ever since.
FAVOURITE SONG TO WORK TO?
One song is tough… my favourite album to work to at the moment is Enta Da Stage – Black Moon.
FAVOURITE PLACE TO GO FOR A DRINK?
The Bell in Bristol is a place close to my heart. The beer isn’t amazing but that doesn’t matter in this place, atmosphere more than makes up for it.
There you have it, Dennis everyone! Next time your sipping one of our beers, you can best rest assured Dennis has had a hand in getting it to you and making sure it’s the best it could be!
