Welcome to The Black Sheep Brewery
Set in Masham, North Yorkshire, this is a fantastic place to eat, drink and learn about the rich history of brewing the much loved cask, kegs and bottled beers. The perfect day out for a rainy day in Yorkshire…
Only 20 minutes drive from our holiday homes in Leyburn and 30 minutes from Richmond, drive over country roads in to Masham and spend an afternoon at the brewery, learning all about the history, visit the bubbling brew house and fermenting room with strong aromas of English hops and malted barley, then find out about the scientific process of brewing to put you in the mood to taste these award winning ales.
Enjoy a meal in the old malt chamber at the Bistro and Baa…r which has an extensive menu using only local produce and of course top tips to match your beer to your food (we recommend the beer-battered fish and chips).
Make sure you pop into the gift shop before you leave, where you can stock up on cases of ales to enjoy in the comfort of your own holiday home!
Holiday accommodation nearby: Sun Hill Farmhouse (sleeps 8) and Lodge Barn (sleeps 10) are only 20 minutes from the brewery and perfect for a large group looking for something different in the Yorkshire Dales. Look online at our availability here...
