Black Sheep Brewery
Black Sheep was born from the pioneering spirit of Paul Theakston who in 1992 followed his heart and dared to start a new brewery. Set in Masham North Yorkshire Black Sheep produces much loved cask keg and bottled beers and continues to go against the grain with a flow of new and experimental brews. Each beer is the culmination of brewing expertise spanning six family generations. Today Paul's sons Rob and Jo Theakston continue that spirit as Black Sheep stands tall amongst UK breweries built on a solid reputation for creating beer of outstanding quality full of passion and integrity.
Using Challenger and Fuggle hops black sheep is a big flavoured but very approachable bitter. The nose has a rich, malty character but the palate is lighter and softer with hints of cocoa and rich malt.
