A good selection of tastes to whet the palate and very happy to sell a mixed box of all their products.

While holidaying in Porthmadog in October we decided to book the brewery tour (liking beer helped!). We were one of 3 couples, so a good size for what is a small brewey. Our guide (Kev) was extremely knowledgeable, enthusiastic and clearly enjoys his work. He made it a relaxing session, rather than a chemistry class and was very happy to... More

Have been here several times over the years and always come home with a load of goodies, the shop is reasonably priced and offers samples to try before you buy. Next time we go our daughter will be 18 so I guess she'll enjoy it more!

Popped in for a gift for a friend. The sales man was very helpful and I even picked up a bottle for myself. Delicious!

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.
