Julian Smith MP visited Black Sheep Brewery in Masham to meet Andrew Slee, the new chairman of the brewery, and Jo Theakston, the managing director.
Black Sheep is a major employer in Masham, producing cask, keg and bottled beers and creating new and experimental brews. It is a family business with six generations of brewing expertise, and just a few weeks ago they beat a number of larger companies to win the British Beer and Pub Association “Beer Champion” award for 2017.
Julian Smith MP said ‘It was a pleasure to visit the Black Sheep Brewery in Masham. I was pleased to discuss the progress they are making, look around the brewery and understand the particular challenges they are facing around beer duty.’
