Good find

Very, very tasty beer, particularily the one made with elderflower. Wish i could find them more in South Wales. Perhaps i am not looking in the right place.

My dog Rocky and I visited the brewery shop in Porthmadog on the 18th November. It is one of the many shops in Porthmadog which makes dogs welcome, and Rocky thoroughly enjoyed nosing around in the shop and getting lots of attention from the lovely lady behind the counter, who is very clearly a dog lover. Great selection of local... More

Great shop for those special local beers. Also plenty more to see in the shop for gift ideas. The main thing it's not over priced.

Our tour with Kevin was really interesting and entertaining and he did a great job. There were 10 in total on the tour and it was a nice size and a friendly group. Afterwards there was the opportunity to try all 6 of the beers on display - including the powerful 'Decadence'! We enjoyed a pint of their Chocolate beer... More

Fantastic tour of a working brewery. You really get in among the brewery process from start to finish. Tour guide was engaging and passionate about the brewery. You also get to try all 6 beers brewed! Well worth a visit!

Wonderful micro brewery with award winning bitter and some interesting brews, such as the addition of elderflower which created a great beer for drinking with food.

We went to go on the brewery tour which everywhere we looked online appeared open at the weekends (including on here) but apparently it's only open through the week which was disappointing. The outside of the brewery gave no indication of opening times either. However we did go into the separate shop which was staffed by a lovely woman who... More
