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.

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.
