The Samuel Smith brewery in Tadcaster was founded in 1758 and is Yorkshire’s oldest brewery. Samuel Smith is one of the few remaining independent exporting breweries in England and is the last to utilize the classic Yorkshire Square system of fermentation solely in stone (slate) squares.
The rich Samuel Smith strain of yeast at the brewery dates from the early 1900s. Hops are hand-weighed by the master hop blender, and the brewing water is drawn from the original well, sunk over 250 years ago.
Samuel Smith produces over a dozen beers, but they are most known for their ultra-traditional English ales. The Organic Pale Ale, Taddy Porter, Oatmeal Stout, Imperial Stout, and Nut Brown are all considered some of the world’s best examples of their styles and are often seen as the benchmark in their categories.
Full body with roasted barley flavor, fruity notes from the Samuel Smith yeast strain support lush chocolate aroma, taste & finish. This is one of the most “chocolatey” beers we’ve ever come across!
Innovators in Certified Organic beers, Samuel Smith began to ship the first organic beers to the US in the mid-1990s. Organic Cider and Organic fruit beers followed starting in 2007, and after many months of test brews & intensive tasting Organic Chocolate Stout was released in September, 2012.
