T&R Theakston is an English brewery located in the market town of Masham, North Yorkshire

The company is the 16th largest brewer in the UK by market share & the 2nd largest brewer under family ownership after Shepherd Neame

T&R Theakston Ltd. was founded in 1827 by Robert Theakston & John Wood at The Black Bull pub & brewhouse in Masham

By 1832 Theakston had sole ownership of the brewery & in 1875 he passed control over to his son Thomas who expanded the range of buildings by building the new brewery on the Paradise Fields

In 1919 the company acquired & closed down the Lightfoot Brewery, also in Masham

Theakston's expanded into Cumbria in 1974 buying the Carlisle State Management Brewery

The brewery had been owned & operated by the government since 1916. However the site was a financial drain on Theakston's & led to the company being taken over in 1984 by Blackburn based brewer, Matthew Brown, itself taken over by Scottish & Newcastle 1987

Paul Theakston (Managing Director since 1968) left Theakston's in 1988, & in 1992 established the Black Sheep Brewery in the old Lightfoot Brewery premises - located adjacent to the White Bear Hotel, one of Theakston's pubs

The Carlisle brewery was closed in 1987, & brewing of some Theakston beers was transferred to Scottish & Newcastle's Tyne Brewery

2004 the business returned to family ownership after being purchased back from Scottish & Newcastle by 4 Theakston bros

Major development works at the Masham Brewery enabled the company to announce that brewing of Theakston Bitter would return to Masham in 2009
