Before we had a brewery we had a bar…. (which turned into a family of bars). Some of you may have stayed there for one for the road after a beer festival or two!

We opened North Bar on a slightly sketchy street in Leeds in 1997 which means we’re about to turn 23 years old(!) We always hold a big summer party on North Bar’s birthday, so this year we’re going virtual…

John and Christian would love you to join us and raise a glass virtually to the past 23 years on Instagram Live at 7pm on Wednesday 1st July.

We’ve put together a birthday box which can be bought through our webshop today or at any of our pop up bottle shops here in Leeds from Tuesday 23rd June. It features six North Bar classics, a party hat, and (of course) a mini pour of tequila.

(We offer FREE local delivery on all orders over £20 within a 3 mile radius of the brewery)

We’ll post the beers to you to arrive in time for the birthday, you need to get them chilled and choose your favourites to drink on the night. The box contains:

North Birthday Box

  • Brooklyn Lager
  • Transmission IPA
  • Liefmans Kriek
  • Duchesse de Bourgogne
  • Schneider Weisse Helle Weisse Tap 1
  • Delirium Tremens 
  • Tequila
  • Verdita at home recipe card

The past few months have been the most challenging in North Bar’s history but the support from our regulars, the wider beer industry, and the independent scene in Leeds has been fantastic. This isn’t quite how we saw our birthday party going… but we still can’t wait to share a beer with you all.
