Black Donkey Brewing, a name synonymous with innovation and authenticity in the beer world, presents the Sheep Stealer Saison. This beer is not just a drink; it's a narrative, a journey back to a time when legends were born from the actions of ordinary people. The tale behind this brew is as intriguing as its taste, rooted in the history of the wild western tribes of Ireland.

The foundation of this beer is its rich history. The story goes that the tribesmen, in their quest to capture the beautiful women of a neighbouring tribe, were outwitted by these very women. To escape their clutches, the women disguised themselves in sheepskins, blending in with their flocks. However, the raiders, sharp and astute, saw through the ruse and identified the women among the sheep, leading to the moniker "The Sheep Stealers" for their descendants.
