Black Sheep Brewery

Based in Masham, Yorkshire, England, Black Sheep Brewery is the brainchild of Paul Theakston. The former managing director of Theakston Brewery also in Masham, Yorkshire.

In fact Theakston is a family brewery started by Thomas Theakston way back in 1827. In the late eighties family disputes ended in a buy out of Theakston’s by Scottish & Newcastle Brewery. A disillusioned Paul left the fold.

Brewing is in Pauls blood and it wasn’t long before he was fighting back to build a new brewery. Despite many obstacles he pulled it off and Black Sheep was born.

Now a well established brewery run by his two sons Robert and Jonathan. Black Sheep produce a great range of beers.

This page will feature those beers and will appear here as I get to try them, so the list will grow.
