Black Sheep Ale

Black Sheep Ale is our best selling bottled ale and what a beer it is.

Black Sheep Ale is a powerfully flavoured pint that packs a punch with rich fruit aromas and a distinctively smooth, bittersweet taste. We first brewed and bottled Black Sheep Ale in 1993 and today it is one of the best-selling premium bottled beers nationally; available in all major supermarkets!

Black Sheep Ale is brewed with a large helping of Golding hops which lend a fruity flavour reminiscent of Seville oranges which, together with the warming full bodied malt flavour, stand up well to all red meats and most cheeses such as Wensleydale and Stilton.

Ingredients icon


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 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.
