Thanks to everyone who took part in the Name Our Mascot competition. We had more than 70 suggestions. The winning name was Beerwulf. We also selected two runners up names; Øl and Aegir.
Three people suggested the name so we pulled the lucky winner from the hat and presented the prize - free entry for two and beer tokens - on Saturday at the Brass Castle Tap.
Our festival could not be run without the help of our sponsors. So many thanks to all our sponsors including B.A.D. Company, Bad Seed Brewery, BB Plastics, Brass Castle Brewery, Brooks Macdonald Asset Management, Great Heck Brewing Company, Ilkley Brewery, Roosters Brewing Company, Rudgate Brewery, Streamline Taxis, Wharfe Bank Brewery, The York Brewery Co. and more.
