Black Sheep

Black Sheep Brewery was founded in 1992 by Paul Theakston of the noted Theakston brewery whose family had been brewing in the Yorkshire village of Masham for five generations. When the Theakston brewery was taken over by Scottish and Newcastle breweries in the late 1980s, Paul was offered a role, but instead set out to do things his own way, reviving the old Lightfoot Brewery building which had stood unused in the village for decades.

The Black Sheep Brewery has gone on to salvage features and equipment of other closed breweries, incorporating them into their own in order to best champion the UK's proud brewing heritage.
