In the early days at North Bar, Christian developed an expertise in the world of speciality beers, in particular Belgian, German and American in addition to well brewed British cask ales. Having opened and co-designed the venues, Christian has a track record in interior design, budgeting, sourcing equipment and trades and project management.
