We held our first social event of the year last week, which included a brewery tour at York's most impressive new craft brewery and tap room - Brew York!

Alongside sampling some of the top sellers and getting to grips with the brewing process, we were also treated to the story behind the business, as told by co-founder Lee.

Having left a corporate career to pursue his passion for brewing (which he started as a hobby aged 15) Lee's enthusiasm and experience shined throughout our tour.

Many attendees remarked on how inspirational it was to hear first-hand from someone who has taken a business risk and made a real success of things.

After the "formal" part of the evening was over, many of us stayed on to enjoy the inviting tap room and gorgeous riverfront terrace, overlooking Rowntrees Warf.

Thanks so much to Lee and his team for having us!
