What a great tour guide, this is my second brewery tour and I came away with a better knowledge than ever. Being in the licenced trade I like to see where our beers come from and I was not disappointed. I highly recommend this tour.

Get your facts right Bunny. The pub you mention in your last paragraph is The White Bear-yes a Theakstons pub- they've been brewing in Masham since 1827 and once owned the buildings which now house Black Sheep . Landlord is indeed a fine beer but is brewed by Timothy Taylor in Keighley. So irritating when people come on Trip Advisor and spout such ill-informed nonsense.

You need to learn to be more polite and accurate. My review doesn't mention any of the things you have put in your comments. My review is accurate. Love Bunnyxx
