Enjoy your trip. I think everyone has covered most of the points you raised. Try the local brews, Copper Dragon beers are excellent. Try also the range of Timothy Taylors beers and the omnipresent Black Sheep. There are also many smaller breweries in the area too which are worthy of a trial. These breweries now sell their beers in former Theakston houses following the sad demise of this famous brand. I have just returned from a weeks walking there. Don't forget to visit Bolton Abbey, just up from Ilkley, and enjoy the walk through the woods alongside the river Wharf. Enjoy

The demise of Theakstons was when they sold out to Scottish & Newcastle Breweries, but the Theakston family have now rebought the old Masham brewery and brands.
