Thank you to the Staff at Purple Moose. We loved the tour of your Brewery it was fun and informative and everyone we met along the Tour was helpful and friendly. We enjoyed the tasting session of all the beers available at the end and there was plenty of quality merchandise to buy to remember your visit as well as... More

I tried purple moose's beer prior to the visit to the shop and wanted to have a look. It was different from most of the breweries I've been to, as it was more of a shop. They do offer a tour, but I recommend setting it up in advance, unlike us (as it was more spur of the moment), because... More

We managed to join an already busy tour of the brewery on Thursday 4th September - it was already full but as the brewery was quiet we were allowed to join. We were lucky - hence the hint that booking is probably the best option :) The brewery is in the centre of Porthmadog and therefore easy to walk to.... More

Excellent guided tour. Lasted approximately an hour with samples of all their fine beers afterwards. Price is £5.00 but you get a PM pint glass for free at the end. Dark Side Of The Moose is a world-class brew.

We saw some Purple Moose at the Bounce Below cafe and decided to stop by on a whim. Tried the different beers on offer and went home with a crate of elderflower. 5 different beers that would suit all tastes and worth a stop to get a glass (or even a cuddly moose) as well as the beers. Guy at... More

We booked for the brewery tour and were not disappointed, although we have not been on other to make a comparison. From the start you could tell just how passionate they are about the product, the attention to detail in the brewing process ensures that the beer is fantastic, no wonder they are winning awards. The tour takes under an... More

I had seen previous Trip reviewers comments and while touring around North Wales, stopped in Porthmadog for 2 hours and not disappointed. Small shop in Madoc street but a lovely friendly welcome and discussion about the brewery and its beers. Sampled 5 of the 6 beers. If you like dark beers then either Dark side of the moose or there... More
