SOPHIEWEBSHOP ASSISTANT MANAGER
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 we 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 The Cure 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 Kaliuchis 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 a 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.
