The Bottles Keep on Coming!

And then there were four…

Powerhaus 4.4% pale is the latest in the line-up, an uber-refreshing pale ale brewed with German hop hallertau and U.S. hop pilgrim that layers citrus fruit notes with a powerfully bitter edge.

Look out for our popular pilsner-style lager in bottles at the end of June; fully lagered for a minimum of 8 weeks for a full flavour.

New Bottled Beer Range

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.

Rich, dark and heather-infused Moel Famau ale

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…

New Look Branding is Here!

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?

The Brewery Bar: Out and About Soon!

The pop-up brewery bar is being dusted off and coming out of hibernation as we get ready for two local events: the NEW Theatr Clwyd Beer & Cider Festival on Saturday 2nd March 2-8pm:

and the Fat Boar Wrexham Meet the Brewer on Monday 4th March 7-10pm:

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.

What’s brewing?

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.

November Brewery Events

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:

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.

Festival Season is ON!

Find the brewery bar and team out at festivals in the North-west over the next few months and try our best-selling beers and new seasonals in cask, keg and bottle…

9 Hop Pale’s back – can you name all 9 hop varieties?!

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!

The winner will be announced after the Easter weekend and will receive a mixed gift pack of Hafod bottled beers. Not sure of your hops? Try these for starters:

Happy hop hunting! #drinklocal and enjoy our lovely #welshbeer 🙂

Terms and conditions:
You must be 18 years+ to enter (and receive the prize) as the winner will receive a free Hafod gift-pack of bottled beer.
You must be able to collect your prize from the brewery at a time arranged with us (we don’t post nationwide.)
In the event of a tie-break we will pull names out of a hat – there will be one winner only.
If NOBODY guesses all 9 hops correctly we may choose to award a prize to the person with the most correct answers (because we’re nice like that.)
Employees, close friends and family of the brewery may not enter as they probably know too much about the hops already so that would be cheating 😉 !
