Our Beers

The Charles Bathurst Inn is committed to sustainability through our use of local suppliers.  We are proud to be a loyal customer of the Masham based Black Sheep Brewery and the Wensleydale Brewery based in Leyburn. Whether you are enjoying a pint in our beer garden on a summer afternoon or sitting around the fire in our cosy bar on an autumn evening, you will have a wide selection of beers and lagers to choose from.

Black Sheep Brewery

We have had a close relationship with Black Sheep Brewery since we opened and continue to feature their beers. 

Established in 1992 and based in Masham, the Black Sheep Brewery is proud of its Yorkshire roots.

The Charles Bathurst Inn serves Black Sheep Best Bitter Beer. This iconic Yorkshire Bitter was created to offer a cask ale with real flavour and bite.

Our Beers

The captivating amber gold colour makes this Yorkshire bitter a sight to behold. Brewed with whole-flower English hops, Best Bitter Beer packs a genuine spiky bitterness with big character.

Challenger, Goldings and Fuggle hops blend to create a beautiful aroma and flavour with kicks of grassy freshness and a big peppery punch. The Maris Otter malt provides a light sweetness, balancing Best Bitter’s big flavours to create one of the North’s finest session beers.

Wensleydale Brewery

Wensleydale Brewery was established in 2003 at the Foresters Arms in Carlton. A small one-barrel plant was soon overwhelmed by its growing reputation and the brewery was moved to a Manor Farm Barn in Bellerby with a larger 5 barrel set up. At this time enthusiastic dales youngsters Geoff and Carl began working for the brewery straight from school and after several years bought the brewery outright.

As the Wensleydale Brewery continued to expand, they moved to their current premises in Leyburn in 2018.

The Charles Bathurst Inn stocks Game Keeper Best Bitter, which has all the traditional traits of a Yorkshire Best Bitter with a modern edge. Rich copper in colour with malty and slightly biscuity flavours; Magnum hops give a subtle hoppy finish.
