Black Sheep Brewery has unveiled a collection of special ‘stay at home’ Father’s Day gifts for dads waiting patiently for the pubs to re-open!

The set of three Father’s Day packs feature a range of Black Sheep brews, Yorkshire food and gifts and can be delivered throughout the UK to arrive by 21st June.

Black Sheep’s Father’s Day Beer Pack features a collection of four of its most popular beers, including Black Sheep Ale and Riggwelter, along with treats such as Wensleydale Cheese & Black Sheep Cheese, Black Sheep Chutney and their classic pint glass.

For gin lovers the brewery has created a gift pack that includes, along with the cheese and chutney selection, a 70cl bottle of Black Sheep Gin, a branded gin glass, a collection of tonics and a pouch of juniper berries and pink peppercorns.

Dads who enjoy beer and spirits can be sent a combined pack, which includes a bottle of Black Sheep Ale, a bottle of Riggwelter and a 20cl bottle of Black Sheep Gin, along with a range of food and gifts.

Priced between £59.95 and £89.95, the packs all include a Black Sheep bar towel, notepad, bottle opener key ring, a travel mug, and a voucher for a family tour of the Masham brewery, which can be booked when COVID-19 restrictions are lifted.

Not only that, the brewery has also included a new and exclusive Cheeseboard which is handmade in Masham and literally ‘branded’ with Black Sheep’s iconic logo via a hot branding iron.

Charlene Lyons, Chief Executive at Black Sheep Brewery, said: “Going to the pub to enjoy a relaxing pint is one of the joys of many people on Father’s Day, but in the current circumstances we’re helping dads experience a stay at home celebration with our collection of gift packs.

“We’ve pulled together an extensive collection of beer, gin, food and gifts so dads can have a taste of Black Sheep and Yorkshire from the comfort of their own living room or garden, raising a glass to the thought of returning to the pub”.

Editors’ Notes:

The Black Sheep Brewery is one of British brewing’s most famous stories and has grown from humble beginnings to become a multi-award-winning company, with its beers enjoyed around the world.

Black Sheep has grown to become one of Yorkshire’s most recognised brands, with its beer distributed both nationally and internationally. Black Sheep continues to champion the county of Yorkshire and is the official brewer of the annual Tour de Yorkshire.

Black Sheep is a multi-award-winning brewer, having enjoyed numerous accolades in recent years including:

The British Beer & Pub Association (BBPA) Beer Champion 2017

International Brewing Awards – Milk Stout – Overall Champion (International Dark Beer)

World Beer Awards 2019 – Milk Stout – UK Winner

World Beer Awards 2019 – Pathmaker – Gold Award

World Beer Awards 2019 – Black Sheep Ale – Silver Award

World Beer Awards 2019 – Guzzler– Bronze Award

World Beer Awards 2019 – Pineapple Milkshake IPA- Bronze Award

Based in Masham, in the heart of North Yorkshire, Black Sheep brewed its first beer in 1992 after being built up by Paul Theakston, whose family had brewed in the area for six generations.

In a world of ever-increasing bland, mass-produced beer, Paul saw an opportunity to return to what his family had done best since 1827, making real beer in the time-honoured fashion.

An old maltings building, once part of Lightfoot's Brewery, became the Brewery’s home. This landmark building, which stands high over the banks of the Ure, had fallen into disrepair as years of neglect as a semi-redundant grainstore had taken its toll. Paul assembled a small team around him to fight the rats and build a traditional country brewery.

The Visitor Centre, at the site of the iconic brewery, has grown to become an award-winning attraction for visitors to Yorkshire, with tens of thousands of people flocking to Masham each year. In 2018, the Visitor Centre had a thorough refurbishment and offers the general public a menu of locally sourced Yorkshire food, its range of award-winning beers and tours of their iconic brewery.

In 2018, Black Sheep announced the purchase of York Brewery, which included the acquisition of four pubs in the business and key cask brands, including Guzzler and Yorkshire Terrier.

The outlets bought by Black Sheep, as part of the deal, are as follows:

Last Drop Inn, York

Mr Foley’s Tap House, Leeds

The Three Legged Mare, York

The addition of York Brewery complements the strong, iconic Black Sheep brand and its existing award-winning beers and brands.

In 2018, Black Sheep also purchased the Chapel Allerton based bar, ‘Kith and Kin’ which they have since refurbished and renamed the ‘Black Sheep Tap & Kitchen’, which was officially launched on 28th February 2019.

The Black Sheep name derived from Masham’s association with sheep, but ‘Sheep Brewery’ didn’t quite sound right, so with a little creativity from Paul’s wife, the Black Sheep Brewery was born - a name that sat well with the area, spoke volumes about the business’ maverick attitude to the multi-nationals seeking to dominate the brewing industry and captured the essence of the family struggle that led to its birth.

Black Sheep’s beers are full of character derived from the best possible brewing materials, plenty of time and patience in the brewing and its very special Yorkshire Square fermenters.

Black Sheep Best Bitter is now one of the best-selling cask session beers in the UK and many of its creative brews, over the course of its 25-year history, have collected numerous awards – ranging from Black Sheep’s traditional ales to its up and coming craft beers.

2017 marked the launch of Black Sheep Brewery’s first lager, 54 Degrees North, created in homage to its hometown of Masham, which sits on 54’ 13’ 24” N; 1’ 39’ 20” W longitude and latitude lines, as the company embarks on an adventurous new chapter in its distinguished history.

In 2019, the brewery diversified their offering and entered the world of spirits by producing their own Black Sheep Yorkshire Dry Gin. The gin is distilled in Masham and within the production it features classic brewing ingredients including malted barley and Lemondrop hops.
