International Women's Day 2019
We've had a great day brewing a collab with Johnny & Charlotte from Beavertown’s Tempus Project.
We made a low ABV Belgian Blonde with wheat, oats, coriander and plenty of hops (Amarillo, Mandarina Bavaria & Huell melon). The beer should be ready just in time for some early summer drinking!
HALE BREWING: MEET THE BEER
It's International Women’s Day! What better time to sing the praises of some of the amazing women at six°north!
NORTH BREWING PERMANENT TAP
We’re changing up the format of Meet the Brewer events at our bars. We feel that the format is a little tired and has run it’s course for us at six°north. So we’ve decided to freshen things up...
…Going forward we will host Meet the Beer events where our guest brewers will present three quick-fire tastings on the night! Each tasting will start with a question and the brewery will answer with one of their beers! We want an approach which encourages customer interaction, giving more of an insight into breweries and the stories behind their beers. Tastings will be free of charge and will be booked on a first come, first served basis.
Meet the Beer. The answer to the question is always beer!
TRACK BREWING TAP RESIDENCY
We have recently introduced permanent guest brewery taps across our five bars for the very first time. These taps will be dedicated to some superb UK breweries who each produce outstanding beer.
Our first permanent tap launches on 1st March and will be dedicated to Leeds’ North Brewing. North have gone from strength to strength in the past few years, consistently releasing some of the most delicious pale ales in the country. We brewed two collaborations with North in 2018 and we’re delighted to continue working with them into 2019 and beyond.
We had a wee chat with founder John recently about all things North…

New release: OMNIUM - Session IPA [out now]
Jim from Simply Hops was at the brewery today to brew a collab together! We made a modern Belgian Blonde with plenty of hops! Specifically: Galaxy, Relax, Monroe & Fantasia. The beer is due for release in August.
OMNIUM is our new 4.3% session IPA, and the first in the new triumvirate of beers. It could not be further removed from the classic styles our customers have come to expect, but it follows neatly in their footsteps, and is just as expertly designed & produced. Omnium has a light malt backbone with a generous helping of dry hopped Citra, Mosaic, Amarillo and Simcoe, which makes for some very pleasant drinking!
