  • A-Pork-Alypse 4.5%

    A-Pork-Alypse is a double-chocolate and bacon porter inspired by the eclectic brews of the States. Made up of a grist of Chocolate, Brown, Dark Crystal and Smoked malt, with freshly grilled bacon and cacao nibs added to the boil, A-Pork-Alypse has the nose of a bag of pork scratching with flavours of delicious chocolate and smoked meatiness. This is a porky porter you’ll either love or hate.

  • Ale Wyn 5.0%

    This deep-red IPA was created in collaboration with Alun Wyn Jones, so you know it’ll be a champion brew. Thanks to a blend of Carared and Rye Crystal malts, you’ll find hints of dark chocolate and roasted coffee. Waimea and Amarillo hops bring bold citrus and pine flavours for a balanced and satisfying bitterness.

  • Atlantic White 6.0%

    Atlantic White blends the tradition of Belgian ‘Wit’ beers and the hop-character of American IPAs to produce a ‘White IPA’. Brewed with wheat malt and Belgian wit yeast the addition of freshly crushed coriander seeds, Curacao orange and US hops gives a light refreshing beer with a zesty and spicy finish.

  • Barry Island IPA 5.0%*

    Created by Simon Martin, aka Mr Real Ale Guide, this India Pale Ale was inspired by the ‘IPA revolution’ across the pond. The boy from Barry has used a trio of hops from the US in this pale coloured ale, which is bursting with citrus aromas. A unique smooth malt taste upfront is finished off by a vigorous bitterness and a ‘tidy’ clout of citrus and berry hop flavours.

  • Bragging Rights 5.0%

    Based on an ancient Welsh beer style called bragawd, Bragging Rights is a lightly golden pale ale. The addition of honey, followed by a blend of nutmeg, coriander, black pepper, cloves, cinnamon and ginger, create a refreshing beer that is initially sweet yet spicy at the same time.

  • Café Phoenix 4.4%

    Café Phoenix is a rich, dark and smooth Porter with flavours of caramel, toffee and coffee. It blends seven malts, with each adding to the beer’s complexity and depth of flavour, from the sweet caramel notes of Crystal through to the roasted flavours from Brown, Chocolate and Carafa III. Single-hopped with UK Phoenix, a hop that adds flavours of molasses and chocolate, Café Phoenix is accentuated with a coffee blend exclusive to Brains, selected for its mellow but full flavour.

  • Cambrian Pale 4.6%

    Brewed to celebrate the opening of Brains Craft Brewery bar, The Cambrian Tap. Pale ale and cara malts form a smooth, sweet, malty beer that has been generously hopped with Mandarina Bavaria and Mosaic to give vibrant, fruity orange and tangerine flavours and aromas, balanced with a clean, crisp bitterness.

  • Cherry Baby 4.0%

    This Belgian-style beer is brewed with Belgian Golden Ale yeast and sweet cherries. Light and refreshing, this fruity beer bursts with sweet, cherry flavours.

  • Frisco 4.4%

    A California Common brewed with San Francisco Lager Yeast and a trio of American hops; Cluster, Willamette and Chinook. This style of beer is often referred to as “steam” beer due to the relatively warm fermentation temperature.

  • Green Dragon 4.1%

    Green Dragon has been brewed to celebrate the annual British hop harvest. Fresh 'green' Progress hops from Newnham Farm in Worcester and Pilgrim hops from the gardens of our Ty Mawr pub in North Cardiff have been used to create the distinctive 'green hop' character in this refreshing pale ale.
