National law firm Freeths has advised multi-disciplinary equity, lending and advisory services company Breal Capital on its acquisition of Black Sheep Brewery, its shop and visitor centre, and its estate of public houses.

Founded in 1992 in Masham, North Yorkshire, Black Sheep Brewery employs around 150 people, and this deal will secure significant local employment and the family-run business’s future growth.

Leading on the acquisition, Freeths’ restructuring partner John Jeffreys said: “We are extremely pleased to have supported our client Breal Capital in this acquisition which represents an important addition to its existing portfolio. The future of this well-loved Brewery has been secured with Breal’s support and we wish them every success.
