In the Autumn of 2016 Ainsty Ales was fortunate enough to be contacted by the University of York to take part in a collaboration with it's Business Management students.

In January this year a group of students started work on a research-project for the brewery, we were very impressed with how thorough and professional the students were and their findings and reports will certainly be used by Ainsty Ales this year ... here's a short video about the project. youtu.be/6E3T1OV30W4
