Visit iconic Yorkshire brewery T&R Theakston’s Visitor Centre – the Black Bull in Paradise – to soak up the brewery’s almost 200 years of history, sample its core range of ales and get an insider’s understanding of what it takes to create the perfect pint through one of its guided brewery tours.
As you journey through the brewery, you’ll learn how Theakston selects its ingredients and the methods they use to produce the distinctive tasting beers that it is known for. You’ll even have the opportunity to visit Theakston’s cooperage, one of the last of its kind in England, where cooper Euan Findlay will be hard at work crafting wooden casks, designed to be filled with the brewery’s signature Old Peculier ale.
Euan will be performing dedicated demonstrations at 2pm on the 28th, 29th and 30th of September.
After enjoying the tour and demo, visitors can pick up a souvenir at the gift shop before pitching up at the bar to enjoy more of the brewery’s legendary ales.
