Went with my boyfriend and family, and had a great time drinking all the varieties and going on the tour. Lunch afterwards was delicious as well. Would thoroughly recommend to all ale fans!

We had an excellent day visiting Black Sheep Brewery doing the brewery tour. Very well put together and professional. Great food in the bistro and most importantly a great pint! Would go back in the future and recommend it to anyone visiting Masham.
