The Gold Medal Winner at the International Beer Challenge 2009 was Black Sheep Ale. The culmination of six generations of brewing expertise. Brewed at Paul Theakston’s Black Sheep Brewery in Masham, North Yorkshire – and nowhere else! This award winning, full flavoured ale is brewed with the best quality ingredients using the most traditional methods and is one of the best selling ales in the country. It has a rich fruity nose, a lovely roasted malt body with the characteristic long, dry and refreshing Black Sheep finish.
