A BREWERY in North Yorkshire is marking a significant milestone in its history by securing a deal with a major supermarket.

Black Sheep Brewery has secured a six month deal with Morrisons for its Black Sheep Best Bitter, which was previously only available to the on-trade as a cask and keg brand.

The launch comes as the brewery prepares to celebrate its 25th anniversary, after it was founded by Paul Theakston whose family had brewed in the area for six generations, in 1992.

Jo Theakston, sales and marketing director at Black Sheep Brewery, said: “This is another Black Sheep exclusive and we are delighted to offer Yorkshire’s best-selling cask ale outside of pubs for the very first time.

“It is an exciting period and only fitting that we extend one of our most well-known brands so people can enjoy our Best Bitter in the comfort of their home, in our landmark 25th anniversary year.”

“We have a lot in store for our customers and visitors to our Visitor Centre, and will be announcing further surprises and significant happenings as the year progresses,” he added.
