Cask Ales at The Farmers Arms
Local Real Ales
We try to keep our real ale selection as local as possible. We class all of our cask ales as being local and as Darren is very particular about his beer; he ensures that they are all kept to their best.
Our current range and their breweries include:
Theakston Brewery – Masham (28 miles)
Old Peculier – 5.6% abv.
A deep dark ruby colour, it is a rich, dark, smooth tasting beer; full bodied and malty.
Theakston Best Bitter - 3.7% abv.
Theakston Best Bitter is the leading session ale within the Theakston portfolio and has been for time immemorial. It is quite possible that when Robert Theakston founded the brewery in 1827 the range of ales would have been limited to just two or three of which almost certainly, one would have been a bitter beer. Consequently it would be reasonable to argue that Theakston Best Bitter is one of the longest established session ales in Yorkshire.
When we refer to a ‘bitter’ beer, the term does not mean sour as in lemons, but dry as in ‘dry white wine’. So Best Bitter is a full bodied, dry beer.
Black Sheep Brewery – Masham (28 miles)
Black Sheep Best Bitter – 3.8% abv.
A classic well-hopped and beautifully balanced beer with a long bitter finish.
Yorkshire Dales Brewing Company
Askrigg (6 miles)
A very small micro-brewery run by husband and wife team, Rob & Anne, just over the hill at Askrigg.
Muker Silver – 4.1% abv.
A blonde Helles style refreshing ale with a sharp flavour and aroma.
Very pale in colour.
Buttertubs - 3.7% abv.
A Pale Golden Beer with a dry bitterness of a good session ale with a citrus flavour from the late hopping with cascade whole hops.
