We had a fabulous tour, which was made even more special as we hit at a time when a member of staff was activating the yeast and testing. Our guide was engaging and really made you want to get your mouth round a few samples come the end of the tour. Very well priced and thankfully having taken my mum... More

Visited here last week and we decided that we'd do the tour which cost £9.50 each We joined our tour and even though the brewery was working we had assumed that as the guide had a microphone we would be able to hear We had to remind the guide that he needed to place the microphone near his mouth for...

Easy walk from the centre of Masham although most people seemed to drive there and there is plenty of parking. We enjoyed the tour, our guide kept things interesting. Of course the best part is sampling the different ales at the end of the tour. Good selection, some I haven't seen anywhere else. Well stocked shop though we didn't buy... More

Visited the Brewery on Tuesday 7 March and had "Howard" as our guide. He obviously loved doing his job and was full of information which made the visit interesting and informative. I shall certainly re-visit the Brewery when next in the area.

We spent a very enjoyable hour or two at this brewery. We had pre-booked the tour as we were told it gets busy, which it was. The tour was led by Peter, a knowledgeable guide, giving a good insight into the brewing process. After the tour, included in the cost, three third of a pint tasters. Loved the beer. Loved... More

We came to the brewery for an afternoon out during a short holiday in the area. The visitor centre is brilliant, with lovely friendly helpful staff and plenty of space to sit and eat/drink before your tour. The tour is a great balance of information, humour, practical interaction and opportunities to look around and see and smell everything. Its not... More

Very interesting tour of the brewery. The tour was well balanced with info on their brewing process and the history of the brewers, followed by a few mini samples. The guide delivered the info with a real sense of passion for Black Sheep. Loved that they try source as much as possible fromYorkshire. Highly recommend this tour if you're in... More

I bought my husband a Black Sheep Brewery Tour as part of a Christmas present. The Tour was excellent and worth every penny. The Tour lasted about an hour and was very enjoyable. They were brewing at the time of our tour and it smelt lovely. We enjoyed the drinks after the tour which were included in the price.
