With countless awards to its credit, it is something of which every Briton can be very proud and is the epitome of the greatest of British brewing tradition. The name pays tribute to the unique ecclesiastical status of Masham as a ‘Court of the Peculier’ and is also a reference to the strong characteristic of the beer! For many years it was affectionately referred to as Yorkshire’s ‘Lunatic’s Broth’.
Old Peculier is a beautiful, yet very simple beer, brewed with only the finest malted barley, Challenger, Target and the majestic Fuggle hops. Fermented with the famous Theakston twin strain yeast to create its extra strength and complex character. The legendary Theakston Old Peculier is a deep, dark, ruby coloured ale with a rich, fruity flavour with hints of cherry and banana.
