North Brewing Co has teamed up with digital agency Zeal to grow its online sales. The Leeds-based brewer operates 10 bars across Yorkshire, Birmingham and Manchester.

The Yorkshire brewer produces 20,000 hectolitres, which are sold in its venues, off-trade and internationally. Zeal has a wide-ranging brief to support online sales, increase subscriptions and target the fast-growing office market.

Commenting on the campaign, John Gyngell, director and co-founder of North Brewing Co, said: “We see huge potential for online sales growth and have found a great partner in Zeal to help us. We are an innovative business with rapid product development. In Zeal, we have a team that shares our passion for fast-moving retail and a flexible approach to achieving the best outcome.”
