We visited Masham whilst in North Yorkshire. We didnt realise the brewery was here as it was tucked away. The brewery tour was very informative with a knowledgable guide. The pub was very cosy and of course served great beers. Well worth a visit.

60th birthday retreat had to include a flight at The Theakstons brewery. Old Peculiar always a favourite and even better when you get to stand at the hand pulls in the historic bar.

Around 30-45 mins. Then the tasting you can do at your own leisure straight after the tour.
