Harry is one of our more recent additions to the brewery team! He’s an absolute class lad, beams positivity, enthusiasm and we suspect he may be our head brewer, Seb’s long lost son… fancy knowing a little more about him? Read on!
How did you come to work for North?
– I guess it was from working in beverages industry for 10 years, I had my first bar job at 18, but more recently I was working at Bundobust and also part time at Northern monk learning the ropes of what it is to work in a brewery. I’ve always gravitated towards beer so when a job came up at North for a brewery assistant, I applied and now I’m here performing cellaring duties!
What was your first memorable beer experience?
– I would say Duvel , my dad used to try and get me into ale, he’d share a beer with me every so often and when he gave me that to try it opened my eyes to a whole other realm of beer aside from traditional English styles. After that I was completely sold on Belgian beer, I’ve been in love ever since.
What have you been listening to at work?
– Electric Wizzard, non stop. They’re one of my favourite bands, I like them a lot. Either that or what ever Dennis has playing…
Where is your favourite spot for a drink?
– It’s difficult to think right now, it’s been so long since I’ve been around bars. I’ve been to a Kirkstall Valley nature reserve a few times recently, it’s nice to take a picnic and take special bottle of beer and enjoy them in the sun. As for places in town, I really like The Angel, controversial choice but it takes some beating.
