Speed up, or Glug will get you
Black Sheep Brewery has announced the launch of its first-ever craft canned range as part of its 25th anniversary year celebrations. The Masham, North Yorkshire-based brewery has scaled up the production of its craft beers, Pathmaker (5.6% abv) and Glug M’Glug (6.2% abv), to 330ml canned format.
Pathmaker was created in homage to Black Sheep’s founder Paul Theakston, who was an early pioneer against bland beer and mass corporations when he founded the brewery in 1992. Glug M’Glug, a dark IPA, is a mythical creature created by a relative of the Theakston family, who hid in the Yorkshire Dales, preying on slow walkers, and was the subject of the family’s bedtime stories.
Glug M’Glug is also available in keg form. Black Sheep has also reintroduced Velo, (4.2% abv) a freewheeling, fresh pale ale, as an April special to get The Tour of Yorkshire cycle race off to a flying start. It begins on Friday April 28 and will pass through Masham the next day.
