SAMUEL SMITH - Sam Smith's is a classic English brewery, founded in 1758 and still going strong. The brewery is notable for using it's own borehole, and fermenting beers in huge stone "Yorkshire square" fermenters. Their beers are sometimes viewed as a throwback to "the olden days", but they are far from old-fashioned - in fact many of their beers inspired the first generation of American craft brewers when they were first imported to the USA in the late 1970s.
Over the years, they have moved increasingly towards using organic ingredients, feeling that these give the best results. Their beers are all certified by the Vegan Society.
