Our brand new bottled beer range has arrived and is fast expanding to offer our most popular core beers and seasonals in 500ml filtered, carbonated and bar coded bottles.
Look out for the rich, dark delight that is Moel Famau 4.1% heather-infused ale, inspired by the stunning Clwydian Range local to the brewery alongside core favourites Sunrise citrus pale and Landmark moreish bitter, with our mighty Powerhaus pale and Moldbreaker Pilsner to follow soon…
It’s out with the old and in with the new this spring at the brewery! We’ll be welcoming back old seasonal favourites like Moel Famau dark ale and newer seasonal like Honey Honey, a Mexican honey special.
Which is your favourite? What are you looking forward to drinking this year?
New brew British 5 Hop IPA will be launching at these events and we’ll be putting together an array of small-batch beers for you to try including our award-winning Coffee Porter. Tickets can be purchased in advance – see the weblink for details.
Fresh in this month is Marynka session pale, brewed mainly with Polish hop, Marynka, of the same name. A candied fruit aroma, hints of floral fruitiness and spiciness are all balanced by a refreshing bitter edge at a session friendly 4.1% abv.
British 5 Hop IPA is up next! Using 5 different British hop varieties and an old-school IPA recipe, Brewer Phill has created an India Pale Ale full of flavour at a solid 4.5% abv. The beer will join the lineup as an early spring seasonal.
We’ll be getting in to the festive spirit with two brewery events coming up this November: Novemberfest and a Christmas Tap & Tour weekend at the brewery itself.
The pop-up brewery bar will be at Mold’s Novemberfest on 9th – 11th November, offering 6 Hafod beers, including Moldbreaker, our popular Pilsner-style lager on keg. All information including tickets and the live music lineup can be found on the Novemberfest website: http://moldnovemberfest.org.uk/#beers
To try the newest Hafod beers including special small-batch brews such as our rich, Trappist-style Dubbel, buy yourself a ticket to a Tap night this 23rd/24th November or Tour on the 24th November. Both Tap Nights and the Tour start and finish in our upstairs bar where you can enjoy a pint, a glass of wine and shop for the latest bottle-conditioned beer. https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/o/hafod-brewing-company-ltd-8894209681
Next up in our festival line-up is LOGGFEST on Friday 1st June – Saturday 2nd June and it’s a first: the Hafod Brewery team and their pop-up bar will be providing the beer outside! The team is excited to be supporting another local business with very much locally brewed Welsh beer.
Friday night is FREE to get in whilst tickets for Saturday are available from We Three Loggerheads pub near Mold. Beer line-up TBA soon to go with the fantastic live bands. The newest (and soon to be revealed) seasonal beers will be on the bar so watch this space and our Facebook page:
9 Hop Pale is BACK for 2018 with a new mix of 9 different hop varieties! The question is: can you name them?
Hop in to your local pub and join in our Easter competition by trying a pint of our newest seasonal beer, then leave your answer as a comment on the Hafod Brewery Facebook competition post. We’ll update our Facebook page with pubs/bars that we’re delivering 9 Hop Pale to, however please check ahead with the pubs themselves to find out when the beer will be available on their bar to avoid disappointment!
Loads of good things being created at Hafod at the moment. Back in stock is a new batch of Clywdian Black porter, which is tasting mighty fine even if we do say so ourselves.
Ready for sale next week (wc 12th March) is this years batch of our punchy session pale ale: Nine Hop Pale. You can see the milled hops in the picture before they go into the boil.
Just ordered from the hop merchant today – a fresh batch of Hallertau Mittelfruh hops – which can mean only one thing – Hafod Pilsner! – brewing this week and then lagering in our icy cold tanks for the next 5 weeks. Should be ready for the heatwave we’ve ordered for May!
