Private tours

We are increasingly asked to provide the facilities of our Visitor Centre and access to our brewery on an exclusive basis for small groups and private parties. This could be friends, clubs and societies or work colleagues following a business team meeting or conference. We have therefore developed an evening package of activity to take advantage of our unique setting which we know you will enjoy! 

The package of activity is flexible by design and we will be delighted to discuss your exact requirements.

For example, a typical evening could consist of arrival and welcoming drinks, introduction to the brewery history followed by a guided tour and a demonstration of the ancient art of coopering. Hot or Cold food can be arranged on request. 

What better way to enjoy an evening with friends or colleagues than the exclusive use of the Theakston Brewery and The Black Bull in Paradise? For further information please get in touch.

Sample Itinerary 

Arrive at the ‘Black Bull in Paradise’ the Theakston Brewery Visitor Centre for a welcoming drink.

Followed by your guided tour of the original Theakston brewing process, from Mashing and Fermentation to Racking the beer into casks for delivery and when available a demonstration of the Ancient Art of Coopering.

The Brewery is a ‘Tower Style’ brewery, which means that everything starts at the top and is thereafter moved by gravity. This means that there are steep stairways and some narrow walkways.

Then back into the bar, for more sampling and supper if ordered.

*Please note that the price of the tour only includes the Theakston product range or soft drinks. A selection of wine is available to buy from the bar on the evening of your tour.
