- Decent Welsh beers to try…
Brains beer, specifically SA, is what non-Welsh people think that Welsh people like (“Oohh, you’re in luck, they’ve got SA on tap”). It’s gross.
I was going to say Butty Bach and suggest that would be the end of the thread, but our friend above has revealed a devastating but of information about its heritage that has, frankly, ruined my evening.
If you’re near Cardiff, just go to the Gwaelod Inn and drink your way across the pumps. If you’re in the centre on a Saturday, Pipes brewery have a kind of open air bar in Kings Road (with artisanal coffee across the yard as well, you’ll think you’ve died and gone to heaven). If you’re super lucky, you’ll even catch one of their street food nights.
The Mochyn Du (they’ve called it something else now, but to locals, it’ll always be the Mochyn Du) next to Sophia gardens brew their own beer on site. Brace yourself for a long wait to be served, though.
We’re better than we were at making beer, but if I’m honest, I’ve had more good pints travelling around the West Country and Kent over the years.Posted 1 year agosofaboy73Member
Surely skull attack?? That or feeling foul. Anything else would be fround upon in the land of my fathers
in all seriousness, there are some great local brews to be had locally and some good suggestions above. And as above SA is pretty grim, hence the skull attack nomenclaturePosted 1 year agoCountZeroMember
I discovered Dark Side Of The Moose at my local beer festival several years ago, and Tiny Rebel’s Cwtch at Greenman last year, and I wish both were more readily available, although my regular pub has had one Purple Moose beer on its pumps recently, and I keep on about DSOTM and Cwtch, so I live in hope.Posted 1 year agoSaxonRiderSubscriber
I’m quite partial to almost anything I have tasted from Tomos Watkins. Cwrw Haf is especially appropriate right now.
Also, Celt beers can be very nice. I certainly enjoyed them when they were Newman Brewery, but Celt quality has not diminished.
Finally, if your friend is in Cardiff, there are a few microbreweries, such as Pipes and Crafty Devil. The Pipes Milk Stout is fantastic.Posted 1 year agoste_tSubscriber
Dark side of the moose is a winner, most of their beers are great. Conwy brewery aren’t quite as good though their Celtic Pride is decent. I ran bars in North Wales for years, the Purple moose stuff was far more popular than anything else.
I also lived in Wrexham. I sincerely hope that Wrexham lager comment was a joke.Posted 1 year ago
