BEER bottles from a North Yorkshire brewery are being given a revamp.

The Black Sheep Brewery’s bottled ale range, including Black Sheep Ale and Golden Sheep Ale, will be given new ‘fleeces’ before they hit supermarket shelves.

The new branding of both brands will feature the Masham-based brewery’s iconic sheep as the main focus of the new label sets, which are foil blocked on thick premium ‘craft’ paper.

Jo Theakston, sales and marketing director at The Black Sheep Brewery, said: "The brand refresh of both Black Sheep Ale and Golden Sheep gives our flagship bottled ale brands an even bolder and more premium look, giving them even greater standout on supermarket shelves up and down the country.

"We are proud of our Yorkshire roots and with the sheep at the heart of our branding we aim to build on the strong following these brands have developed over the years. With the Tour de Yorkshire taking place next week, it is an exciting time for Black Sheep and to mark this, we want to offer our drinkers the chance to enjoy God’s Own Country through our on-pack competition."

To mark the facelift, Black Sheep has launched a competition for shoppers to win ‘Great Yorkshire Weekends’, with a series of winners invited for a private tour of the brewery together with one night’s accommodation and dinner in Masham.
