Connect Yorkshire member North Brewing Co has revealed plans to open its first city centre tap room in its home town of Leeds.
The new venue will be located at the corner of Swinegate and Sovereign Street and will showcase the Leeds-based brewery’s products, alongside British and International craft beers.
The 1,200 sq ft venue will also be the home of local street food business Little Bao Boy, which will be serving up the food offering.
John Gyngell, founder and director of North Brewing Co, said: “We cannot wait to have a North Brewing Co taproom open seven days a week. Our opening hours at our current brewery tap are restricted by it being a working brewery, so this new space is gives us a real scope to introduce new people to our beers.”
James Ooi, founder and director of Little Bao Boy, added: “Working with North Brewing Co in their new city centre taproom is a fantastic opportunity for Little Bao Boy. They have championed us from day one, inviting us to trade at their Eat North street food fair, hold pop ups in their bar, and catering private functions at the brewery.
“Our baos are freshly steamed, homemade fluffy buns filled with a variety of savoury and sweet flavours. Having a full-time outlet is going to give us the space to develop new dishes, and we can’t wait to get cooking with some North Brewing Co beers.”
North Brewing Co has worked with design workshop Plaey, commercial interior contractor Absolute and award-winning design agency Refold on the project. The build will begin in October, with the doors set to open at the end of November.
