With its ninth site set to open this month, the Leeds-based brewery will be growing its presence further with a tenth taproom due to open at Manchester’s Circle Square by the end of the year.
The new taproom, located next to Manchester’s Oxford Road in the new Circle Square development, will have an ever-changing line-up of beers, ciders, wines, spirits and cocktails from both local and international producers. There will also be low/no ABV options. Beer lovers can expect a treasure trove of offerings from the 24 draught lines, including 18 lines of keg beer and one cask. As well as North Brewing Co’s core beers, there will also be specials and collaborations with local brewers, such as Pomona Island and Cloudwater.
The site, which can sit 100-covers with room for an additional 30 standing, will also be serving Asian street food as Little Bao Boy (also from Leeds) takes up residency.
John Gyngell, North Brewing Co co-founder and director, said: “Our new bar in Manchester marks a huge milestone for all of us at North. We’ve actually been looking for a Manchester site for the last 25 years and have come very close a number of times! Many of the North team have lived, worked or studied in Manchester, and we make a habit of visiting as regularly as possible. The hospitality scene in Manchester has provided tonnes of inspiration over the years, and we can’t wait to bring North to the city.”
Max Bielby, chief operating officer of Vita Group (which brought North Brewing Co into the Circle Square), said: “We are delighted to sign with North Brewing Co who will act as a real draw for the development, bringing in new audiences and driving footfall for Circle Square as visitors take in everything this great destination has to offer.”
