TWO businesses with Skipton links are joining together to present a beer event in town.

Elsworth Kitchen, run by Bruce Elsworth, is teaming up with North Brewing Co, created by Skipton man Christian Townsley, for a beer dinner on Thursday, October 17.

The Beer Dinner will comprise specially selected dishes created exclusively for the evening which compliment a range of different beers chosen for the evening by North Brewing Co.

Bruce Elsworth, owner and head chef at Elsworth Kitchen said: “We have worked with North Brewing Co for a long time and love their range of beers. I’m inspired by the different flavours and aromas in them and have created dishes which work perfectly with the food and drink bringing out the best in each other.”

North Brewing Co was founded in 2015 by Christian Townsley and John Gyngell, the pioneers behind Leeds beer venue North Bar, which opened in 1997.

Said to be the first craft beer bar in Britain', North Bar influenced a new wave of modern beer bars and breweries across the country.

In 2015 they turned their 10-year dream of making their own beer into a reality by opening a 15bbl brewery just half a mile from their original flagship North Bar.
