Club Lotus members visited this lovely Micro Pub as part of our 25th Welsh Weekend Celebrations which were being held at Portmeirion. We were given an excellent tour of the Purple Moose Brewery and the guides were extremely knowledgeable and passionate about their product. The tasting session is a must as it informs you of your favourite brew. Then head... More

Only went to the shop on the high street but the staff were extremely helpful and I'd definitely recommend the beers

Very informative, very helpful. Loved their shop in the high street with its extensive beer & cider range. Bit of character too with the quirky purple moose!

We didn't visit the brewery, but did call in at the shop to buy t-shirts and beer. Very helpful ladies who advised us which pubs keep their ales in the Llandudno area and even rang to check. Beers and shop highly recommended.

Purple Mouse beer is widely available in the Porthmadog area and we never had a bad pint anywhere we came across it. There are five different beers to try. Great real ale.

We did not actually visit the Brewery as it was closed on the day that we visited Porthmadog (Sunday). The Brewery shop in the town was also closed, but my husband was very pleased to find the beers in the Spar shop in Porthmadog, including a gift set of two bottles

After some excellent beer in the nearby Australia, I went to the Brewery shop to purchase some ale to take home with me. Was able to sample some of the other ales on offer from this brewery and must say, I am really impressed by them all. The Dark Side of the Moose and the Elderflower ale being my 2... More

Visited on a recent trip to the town. Not far from the car park in a residential street but I understand they are moving to larger premises. The staff are very welcoming and we enjoyed sampling their delicious range of ales. A particular favourite was Decadence which is brewed in whisky casks. Needless to say we purchased the full range... More

Went on their daily brewery tour and the guy showing us round was very friendly and knowledgeable and showed us the whole of the process, much more than you could get to see on similar tours at larger breweries. Got to taste all their beers at the end including their current whisky-cask-aged special - very tasty!
