Saturday 28th May saw representatives of the branch in Knaresborough visiting Roosters Brewery to present the “Beer of the Festival” certificate for Baby Faced Assassin, a 6.1% IPA voted Sunderland Octoberfest 2015 beer of the Festival by the public vote.

We were met at the brewery by Ian & Tom Fozard of Roosters, & CAMRA BLO Alan Pounder. After a welcome pint to refresh us from the journey we had a tour of the brewery followed by the presentation & a couple more fresh Roosters ales to toast the occasion & wash down the excellent buffet that Ian & Tom had layed on for the occasion.
