The Samuel Smith Gift Box
This Samuel Smith Gift Box features a Victorian pint (18.7 oz. or 550 ml) of each of three classics from Samuel Smith: Nut Brown Ale, Oatmeal Stout, and Taddy Porter. It also includes an authentic Samuel Smith pint glass, and two “Rose of Yorkshire,” coasters. This “Traditional British Pub in a Box” comes is heavy full-color packaging showing the Greyhound Inn in Saxton, a 13th-century village pub. The Samuel Smith Gift Box, or Selection Box, is available seasonally in the winter and into the spring.
Nut Brown Ale – Style-defining amber-brown ale with a hint of nuttiness from dark malt. (No nuts are used in the recipe.) Finishes with a satisfying fruitiness from the Samuel Smith yeast strain; fermented on open-top stone “Yorkshire Squares.”
Oatmeal Stout – a small addition of oats provides smooth body and mouthfeel, and balances the roasty flavor of dark malt beautifully. This is the beer that revived the oatmeal stout style, and has inspired hundreds of other brewers. Classic, refined, elegant stout with English hops supporting the deep malt flavors.
Taddy Porter – Traditional porter, rich and inviting. The color is a bit lighter than stout, and dark-malt flavors are softer, highlighting the frutiness of the yeast strain with the dry character of roasted malt playing a supporting role to English pale malt. Fermented in “Yorkshire Squares.”

About the Samuel Smith Brewery
more about Samuel Smith Old Brewery Tadcaster
Samuel Smith brews at the Old Brewery, Tadcaster – it is Yorkshire’s oldest brewery.
Traditional methods of brewing have been retained at The Old Brewery. The Samuel Smith brewery still has its own cooper making and repairing all its oak casks; all Samuel Smith’s naturally conditioned draught beer is handpulled from oak casks.
The original well at The Old Brewery, sunk in 1758, is still in use, with the brewing water being drawn from 85 feet underground.
Samuel Smith’s ales and stouts (except draught Sovereign and Extra Stout) are fermented in ‘stone Yorkshire squares’~ fermenting vessels made of solid slabs of slate ~ which give the beers a fuller bodied taste, using the same strain of yeast since the nineteenth century.
All Samuel Smith’s beers are brewed solely from authentic natural ingredients without any chemical additives, raw material adjuncts, artificial sweeteners, colourings, flavourings or preservatives.
All Samuel Smith’s beers and ciders are suitable for a vegan diet (except cask conditioned Old Brewery Bitter and bottled Yorkshire Stingo).
