About 54 Lager by Black Sheep Brewery

REAL. YORKSHIRE. LAGER.

At their brewery in Masham, North Yorkshire, Black Sheep Brewery brews 54 to a simple yet unique recipe that has Yorkshire authenticity at its heart. Every batch of 54 is brewed with fresh water from the Yorkshire Dales and is fermented in their iconic ‘Yorkshire Squares’ – a fermentation system that is rarely used elsewhere in the world. German Pilsner malt forms the base of 54 whilst a blend of noble hops from Bavaria give it a distinct, aromatic finish with vibrant floral notes aplenty. 

Crisp. Clean. Refreshing.

THE SOUL OF 54.

Though the recipe is inspired by the classic lagers of Southern Germany, 54 is built on a foundation of true Yorkshire spirit. The ethos of 54 is to encourage people to travel, explore and to revel in the experiences that their amazing county has to offer. To experience the hills, vistas, rivers and people that make this part of the world so special.

THE NAME, ’54’.

The 54th parallel north is the line of latitude around the earth that passes through Masham, Yorkshre – the home of Black Sheep Brewery. They originally named this lager ’54° North’ but in July 2020, they abbreviated that to simply ’54’.
