Black Sheep's Shearer returns to pubs

06 June 2017

Paying homage to its home town of Masham, Black Sheep Brewery has re-released Shearer, its juicy, lemongrass pale ale.

As part of its silver anniversary celebrations, Shearer will be available to pubs for the first time since 2015, forming part of the brewery's 2017 seasonal ale schedule.

Coming in at a sessionable 4.1% abv, Shearer is described by Black Sheep as being a full-bodied, zesty sharp, straw-coloured ale, brewed with Citra hops and a hint of lemongrass.

Black Sheep has also created a commemorative 25th anniversary pump clip while Shearer is available in pubs.

'Masham is a very special place and means a great deal to everyone associated with Black Sheep, so it is fitting that we recognise the town’s prestige as part of our 25th anniversary celebrations,' said Jo Theakston, sales and marketing director at Black Sheep Brewery.

'Shearer will be a welcome addition to pubs and bars throughout the north, especially towns and villages renowned for their farming heritage.

'We are delighted to bring back Shearer this month, which coincides perfectly with the start of summer, and its zesty taste will make it a refreshing drink for afternoons and evenings in the beer garden!'
