Black Sheep Brewery

Black Sheep Brewery


Our 'Shepherded' brewery tours take approximately one hour and involve a fascinating trip around our brewhouse and fermenting room. You will experience the Black Sheep brewing process including the aromas of English hops and malted barley, then through the scientific process and finally on to the end product - a glass of our award-winning ales. You can enjoy a meal in the split-level Bistro and Baa...r which serves locally sourced culinary delights. The Sheepy Shop is also available for you to find a 'ewe-nique' gift.

Group visits are welcome, although pre-booking is essential. Opening times vary, due to private functions, so please call in advance to confirm (01765 680101).

Lunch is available daily from 12:00-14:30 and evening meals in the bistro are served from 18:30 on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights.
