Undoubtably one of the finest boozers I've visited - and I've visited a few! The Black Bull is the home of Three B's Brewery. It is owned by a true 'beer hero', Robert Bell. He bought the pub, as a boarded-up eyesore in 2011. It had been closed by previous owner, Daniel Thwaites in 2009. 
It has a beautiful rural setting. The former coaching house is situated close to Darwen,Blackburn , on Brokenstone Road. 
The pub permanently serves NINE of its ales, brewed at the rear of the pub. They range in strength from 3.4% to 5.5%. You will find bitter, mild, golden ale, stout, porter and a strong 'un always available - beer utopia! 
Three B's is rolled out nationally. You will find the beers turning up on bars, the length and breadth of the country. The brewery at the rear of pub has a thirty BBL capacity (30 x 288 pints). Bob, pictured below, is truly a master brewer, no argument.
