The Ainsty area is an ancient self-governing ‘Wapentake’ in York, bounded by the rivers Ouse, Wharfe & Nidd, which dates back to the 1200s. United By Design chose to use a monolithic ‘A’ to serve as a window into the natural surroundings within the Wapentake and bring together multiple influences that inspire and drive the passion of the owner, Andy Herrington.
Each ale is differentiated by its distinctive colour and, in some cases, the illustration within the letter is altered to bring in the themes associated with that specific ale. A bold but intricate solution that stands out both on bottle and over the bar!
