KirstyGM, North Bar
How did you come to work for North?
I sold my dining table to Fay, who works in sales at the brewery, on Facebook marketplace and saw that she worked for North. North were advertising for a GM and Fay highly recommended working for North so it seemed like a no brainer to get involved!
What was your first memorable beer experience?
I’m not sure about the beer, but I had my first IPA in my early 20s and loved the hoppiness. Then I was hooked on trying IPAs…. then WCIPA….then NEIPA…and it’s just grown so much. Transmission is still my fave though!
What have you been listening to lately?
I’ve been listening to a supergroup called the The Black Queen (look them up they sound 80s moody electro it’s ace!) And a lot of Alex is on Fire as always.
Where is your fave spot for a drink?
My fave place to drink is in a nice bar BY MYSELF! Doesn’t matter which country, city or anything just a place with good tunes and nice beer. There was a place I ended up in Spain because there was a downpour suddenly, it looked closed at first, but then we went in and asked for beers and sat down. The wonderful people who worked there had no idea what we were saying, but they were so lovely and hung out with us while we drank our beers and we had the best time. Nothing crazy just nice people
KIRSTY’S SHOUT OUT!
I’d like to shout out the staff at the The Angel Inn on Briggate (it’s not easy being a Sammy’s) and they just crack on!…. They are Leeds best kept secret, the staff are ace! x
