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…
And if you can’t wait till February, we’re also hosting a Christmas drink and shop day on Saturday 2nd December 12-9pm where you can drop in to the upstairs brewery tap for a Christmas pint and stock up on bottled beer and gifts galore at our pop-up shop. No tickets necessary, just drop in on the day.
The Hafod Brewery team will guide you through an interactive tour and tasting at the microbrewery in Mold town-centre, where you can take an exclusive look at our 15 barrel brewery and taste some of our newest beers at the upstairs Hafod bar.
Your ticket will include an interactive tour of the brewery where you’ll see where and how we brew our diverse range of ales, following the brewing journey from grain to beer. Head brewer Phill will be on hand for Q&A. Upstairs in our bar area your ticket will entitle you to x4 half pints or x2 pints and snacks, with further beers available to purchase at the bar, including new festive and seasonal brews.
The brewery shop will be open and fully stocked with our canned and bottled beers, giftpacks, branded welshbeer.com glasses and more – the perfect place to stock up on your favourite beers or gifts.
This Autumn the new, dangerously drinkable Dark Times joined the Hafod can range after small batch brews garnered plenty of fans. A black ale hopped with a blend of U.S. hops, this is a stealthy 6.9% brew that nicely complements the pale single-hopped Hopper and red rye and spelt Big Red cans we already produce.
Rumour has it a fourth can will be joining this trio and rumour has it right – check back and find out more later this month!
In the meantime, take a look at our Stockists page if you’re after a can or three…
Come rain or shine, the Hafod brewery bar will be out at a stack of events this Spring/Summer from fell running to festivals – which one will YOU be at? Check your diary and join us for our usual mix of cask ale, canned and bottled beers!
Saturday 23rd April sees the return of the Real Ale Trail in Flintshire and we’re bringing the beer! The pubs are ready, the buses are good to go, BUT the beer needs a name. To win a day’s brewing at Hafod Brewing Company with Head Brewer Phill and beer to take home too check out the Leader newspaper or www.leaderlive.co.uk to enter the competition and create a name for this year’s Ale Trail brew.
What sums up the Ale Trail? What will look catchy on a pump clip on the bar for hundreds of people to see? We’re looking forward to hearing the names you come up with – good luck!
So Dryanuary and Tryanuary are done and dusted. Happily for us loads more people joined in the fun this year, trying new beers, bars and bottle shops in what could have been a very dry month for the industry. Hafod cans are now available in Wetherspoons across North Wales and several new independent stockists – check out our ‘Stockists’ page for new places to grab a beer.
February is going something like this: Liverpool, refurbishment, meet the brewer, refurbishment, Liverpool…
We’re off to Liverpool a few times this month with 4 cask beers making an appearance at Liverpool CAMRA Beer Festival, including two limited edition small-batch brews, Macaroon 5.5% a sorachi ace hopped dark ale and Hopper Brewer’s Reserve 6.5% a super strength version of our bronze winning beer. At the end of the month we’ll be taking the brewery bar and bottles/cans to celebrate Global Scouse Day on Sunday 28th February at Sefton Park Palmhouse with other independent food, drink and craft producers: https://www.facebook.com/Artisansinthepalmhouse/?fref=ts Our cask and canned beers are cropping up across the city too. Look out for us in both branches of The Ship in a Bottle http://www.theshipandmitre.com/shops/
Kicking off with plans to refurb the brewery and make room for an events space this month requires all hands on deck; after promising a grand opening for a long time we might actually have one! (No, really.) Watch this space for details and some sneak peak photos. Work is ongoing!
Meet the Brewer
Just in time for the Six Nations Wales fixtureswe’re fitting in a meet the brewer night at the independently run The Shop, in Cilcain this Friday 12th February; a great little shop where you can stock up on local produce. The plan is a chilled-out evening of beer talk, handpulled beers and a good excuse to stock up on cans and bottles ready for Saturday’s Wales v Scotland match. Tickets available from The Shop: http://www.theshopcilcain.com/
