Hello! How we feeling out there? It’s cooled down a little now, bit too cold now isnt it? 😅 We’re back with another introduction to the people behind North. The people that keep the wheels turning!

Today we’re saying hello to Sophie! Sophie joined us a couple of months ago now and is assisting in the management of our webshop! Making sure you’re all looked after and getting your boxes of treats delivered safely and on time! Say hey to Sophie everyone! 👋

How did you come to work for North?

I live very close to the brewery itself, in fact I found out about it taking up residence on one of my walks around the Meanwood Valley Urban Farm and thought it would be a cool place to work! I have been a big fan of the brewery ever since my first trip to Alfred Bar, so being able to have the opportunity to work within this forward thinking culture is exciting! It’s super refreshing to work alongside great people, who have a real passion for what they do.

What was your first memorable beer experience?

Like many others, I can’t exactly pinpoint my first beer experience (wink wink). But on a more serious note, I was standing in a crowd at a gig on a hot summer’s eve waiting for @thecure to take centre stage. I remember having a crisp, chilled pint of Heineken in one hand, whilst embracing my friends in the other.

What have you been listening to recently?

I have been listening to a lot of Doja Cat and Kali Uchis lately. It’s a combination of their empowering femini lyrics and stage presence which really resonates with me – it’s just pure escapism, I just can’t seem to tune them out!

Where is your favourite spot for drink?

My favourite spot to drink most recently, would have to be my garden! I spent a lot of time over the past couple of years nurturing and growing my collection of plants and flowers, especially in the lockdown periods where it was one of the only things keeping me sane! But it’s a lovely wholesome experience, having a drink within this small oasis with friends and family.

Take care everyone! Love North! x
