Since Robert Theakston first took a lease on The Black Bull Inn and Brewhouse in 1827, Theakstons is a brewer that has become synonymous with award winning creamy ales and in particular – the legendary Old Peculier.
It's taken around 180 years for Theakstons' range of classic and seasonal ales to develop into the legend that they are today.
The brewery has seen numerous changes during that time including ownership battles and development of many of the traditions still in existence today.
The Old Peculier is one of the most loved Yorkshire ales. Its emblem, the Official Seal of the Old Peculier is as unique as the ale's taste.
