T&R Theakston Ltd is an independent, family brewing company founded in 1827 located in the Yorkshire Dales market town of Masham, North Yorkshire.

Among the beers produced is Theakston Old Peculier, a beer for which the company is famous. The 19th century brewery is of a traditional ‘tower’ construction, containing many of the original features, thus upholding the great tradition of the English top-fermented brewing method.

‘The Black Bull in Paradise’ is the Visitor Centre, a building situated within the brewery surrounds. Its name is derived from elements of company history, linking the name of the inn, the Black Bull in which Robert Theakston founded his brewery in 1827 with Paradise Field, the land he bought a few years later in 1850 and upon which he built a ‘new’ brewery in 1870, the one they still use to this day.
