There's no specific... More

Having sampled the Dark Side of the Moose last week at a beer festival, it was a complete 'fluck' that that's where we visited on holiday (well that what my Hubby and friend said!) The 'men folk' sampled all 5 beers and liked each one. I... More

Tour guide was knowledgeable and engaging. Included a beer tasting. As ticket includes a free pint at brewery tap, good value for money. Beer is also great (recommend the decadence)

When you go on some brewery/whiskey tours you get shown around a mock factory and it's all nice. Purple Moose show you around the real factory by one of the Brewers who obviously really knows his stuff. We saw each stage of the brewing process and it was described in laymens terms brilliantly. Would highly recommend anyone visiting Porthmadog to... More

Great little shop with Purple Moose Brewery Ales & also other local Ales/Beers/Spirits. If you like craft ales etc it will be up your street. Bough two ale glasses which were reasonable and very nice!

Visited the shop on last day of our holiday whilst buying a birthday gift for our son, Wish we had found it before so we could have visited the brewery and "done" the tour too . The shop was clean and tidy and had plenty of room to move around and browse the beer and other related items . Extremely... More
