Harriet - Bar Manager Leeds


Bar Manager Leeds

Harriet - leading woman of Leeds's Brew York, New Briggate. She can talk beers all day and might even kill for a good pint of stout. Raised in Ireland and with Guinness running through her veins, she spent some years living in Asia where she developed a taste for the local cuisine. No wonder then she jumped on the Brew York wagon which combines her love for a good beer and Asian street food. Her current favorite is Salted Carmel Tonkoko , but she is as likely to offer you Time Traveling Taxi.

Jayson - Brew York Warehouse Manager


Warehouse Manager

With a career in logistics Jayson is a stickler for order and a lover of an EAN-14 code. Lover of football being a Man Utd season ticket holder however he isn’t a beer fan which is strange at a brewery. Fear not, the Jack Daniels doesn’t last long around him.

David - Brew York General Assistant

My history is several years in craft beer hospitality. I'm a serious homebrewer my favourite creation being a grapefruit & single hop citra APA. Outside of beer I'm big into my board sports, longboarding, mountain boarding, surfing you name it. Haven't tried snowboarding (yet). Favourite brew york beers, Moo Tang Clan/ Flat Pack Fika Fuel.  Fun facts, I went bald at 23, and I grew up in Tadcaster. Connected? Who could say?

Dom - Bar Manager Pocklington


Bar Manager Pocklington

Ginger-beardy Pocklington native, Dom has been frequenting the original Tap Room since Brew York’s early days, and more recently the Beer Hall and Market Tap. As he was hanging around so much anyway, we figured we may as well give him some work to do and he jumped at the opportunity to escape the boring world of Facilities Management! When not in pubs and bars for either professional or social reasons, Dom can often be found listening to music with his cat, both of whom share Lee’s taste in music that should come with a health warning!
