Black Sheep Special Ale
Our second ever beer. A complex, premium bitter.
Back in the day, Best Bitter was lonely, it needed a companion. We knew we needed a quality, premium strength beer that would stand alongside our cracking session Bitter... we present to you, Black Sheep Ale.
Black Sheep Special Ale is a powerfully flavoured pint that packs a punch with rich fruit aromas and a distinctively smooth, bittersweet taste. As well as the popular cask version, we started bottling this in 1993 and today it is one of the best-selling bottled beers nationally; available in all major supermarkets!

We use Maris Otter malted barley which delivers a better quality and more consistent beer. This brew contains more Crystal Malt than Best Bitter, giving Black Sheep Special Ale its rich flavour and darker colouring.
We use a blend of whole hops including Challenger and Progress hops, with an emphasis on Goldings, giving the beer its fruity nose.
