We’re delighted to announce that the Bootham Crescent Commemorative Beer ‘The Crescent’ is now on sale via the Supporters’ Trust website. Available in cases of 12 uniquely branded 500ml bottles, the first batch will be shipped from York Brewery next month. Please click here to order online today.
The Trust received 116 different name ideas from fans, which went to the vote at a special ale tasting evening at York Brewery last Saturday. Commenting on the announcement, Mike Brown (Trust Chairman) said “We were overwhelmed at the high quality and number of name ideas submitted, many of which referred to City Legends from the past 87 years at Bootham Crescent. But in the end, a capacity crowd at York Brewery nominated ‘The Crescent’ as their preferred choice.”
Work will now start on brewing the ale and finalising the label artwork, which will feature an iconic image from photographer Tony Cole. Huge thanks to everyone that entered the naming competition and attended the beer tasting evening. This locally brewed ale seems a fitting tribute to the home we all love so much.
