North Brewing Co. sells original Leeds brewery to Tartarus Beers

The new owners will reopen the taproom at the end of the month.

North Brewing Co. has passed on the baton onto Tartarus Beers with the sale of the original North brewery.

Located at Taverner’s Walk in Sheepscar, North started brewing at the Leeds location back in 2015, having started the bar family back in 1997 here in Leeds.

The North name now covers a whopping eight bars and have moved all their brewing efforts to Springwell, the gorgeous space in Sheepscar that saw the brand renovate a former Victorian Tannery in lockdown.

The ‘experimental side project,’ Field Recordings can also be found here, alongside food vendors Little Bao Boy and Kerbside Kids.

The Taverner’s Walk brewery will now be home to the 2020 up-and-coming beer brand, Tartarus Beers. Founders Jack Roberts and Jordan Orpen started the brewery after feeling that high quality craft beers were underrepresented in the market.

The new brewery will allow Tartarus Beers to increase production and launch a barrel ageing programme. The types of beers you’ll find here are far from your average pints. Putting a ‘Tartarus Twist’ on classic combos, you’ll find ingredients like squid ink, seaweed and yuzu imperial gose in their latest batch celebrating the second birthday of the company.

Jordan Orpen (she/her), Director & Co-Owner of Tartarus Beers is excited about the move: “We are really excited to have our own brewery and taproom after we have been looking for quite some time. Finding the right location is difficult and we are very lucky that John and Christian thought of us as a good fit to take over where North Brewing Co started. Having our own brewery has allowed us to upscale production, bring packaging in-house and most importantly serve our beers in our very own taproom!

“It has also given us the capacity to move forward with a barrel project, which is something we have wanted to do for a while, look out for our first barrel aged beer coming soon! We are excited to get started and look forward to calling Taverner’s Walk our home. Thanks again to all of the team at North for supporting us through of all of this, you guys are ace!”
