Black Sheep hails the Shearer!
We're brewing up a tribute to the sheep farming heritage of its home town, with a brand new seasonal ale Shearer, a 4.1% full-bodied and zesty sharp, straw-coloured ale, brewed with citra hops and a hint of lemongrass, will be available for pubs on cask throughout November.
Rob Theakston, Managing Director of Black Sheep Brewery, said: “In the Masham area, we are well known for two things in particular, sheep and beer, both of which are traditions that have been passed down through the generations, not least with brewing in my own family.

“Shearer has a great, citrusy flavour and a beautiful straw colouring, slotting nicely between our two Autumn and Winter amber ales, with the popular Blitzen returning for Christmas. It’s another great example of the way we can create fantastic new beers in our microbrewery and scale up to our original, larger plant.”
