Mumbles Brewery were awarded six awards at the SIBA Wales & West Beer Festival at Ludlow on 12th May. The awards were 2 Gold, 3 Silver and 1 Bronze in the following categories;
Martyn Williams: "Many Wales supporters love drinking rugby ales when watching the team in a pub, they can also support a good cause with Mumbles Brewery donating 1p for every pint of Red Nugget to Velindre Cancer Centre."
The ale is 4.3% ABV and has a reddish colour, created in collaboration with a Cardiff pub quiz winning team, The Nick Brain Experience (see photos below). By winning the City Arms Pub Quiz they gained the opportunity to design a new ale. Dave Goodwin is a big fan of Martyn Williams and when given the choice of Nugget hops made the connection with Martyn's nick name. Head brewer Rob Turner said "everything fell into place from there, creating an exciting new single hop ale supporting a very worthwhile charity."
Rob thanks the City Arms landlord Chris Rowlands for having the ingenious idea for the prize. This gorgeous ale will be available there and at and many other pubs across South Wales during the Six Nations.
Below Quiz team members Fenella and Nick dig out the grains, whilst Dave puts hops into the Copper. Other members include Andy, Jenni, Alison and Hugh.
Our new beer Triple Hop Pale is an American style Pale Ale made with 3 US hops with an ABV of 4.7%. It is dry hopped with Cascade to give a very fruity nose to enhance the big hop flavours. The Beer was launched at the No Sign Bar Easter Beer Festival.
Wishing you all and Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Two festive ales have been produced for the season -
Goldings Balls returns, after last years collaboration with Hopcraft Brewery this year, Gazza's team member, Jay came to brew in Swansea contributing to an ale with four leaf hops from Britain, U.S and New Zealand.
Festive Phoenix is a new, reddish brown winter ale with complex malt and single (Phoenix) hop flavours.
See below for details and where to buy these beers and the rest of our range over the festive period.
The Park Inn Mumbles is selling them (and other ales) in 5 Litre casks, conditioned and ideal for Christmas and New Year.
An explosion of hop flavours rocks your senses in this antidote to orthodox Christmas ales. For it's strength it is light, clean tasting, complex and subtle, with Goldings, Nugget and Admiral used for late hopping and Waimea hops used for the dry hopping this beer tantalizes your taste buds and takes you back to the bar for another (drink responsibly).
This British winter ale has complex darker malt flavours from roasted barley, chocolate malt, caramalt and malted wheat. Phoenix are the single hops, introduced three times in the brewing process to create a counterbalancing taste and aroma to form a well balanced beer.
Wild Thing has been unleashed!
Our new local beer uses fresh, wild hops from Langland Bay, designed to encompass wild hops picked less than 24 hours before, known as “green”, i.e. before they dry out, releasing a fresh authentic flavour. The result a stunning, bitter/sweet 5.6% beast of a beer!
New beers created by national and international breweries are often hailed by 'themed' advertising and 'heritage' branding, designed to create a false provenance and history for supposedly artisanal products. In contrast I am using quality ingredients and natural real-ale brewing methods, creating a unique, single-batch ale: The use of locally sourced wild-hops, skilful blending of quality ingredients, rigorous brewing practices and correct storage, creates a natural, local ale without unnecessary additives. The malt comes from Warminster Maltings, a high quality, small scale, traditional, floor malt house, sustaining the natural environment and local community.
These values are at the heart of Mumbles Brewery. To celebrate the successful expansion of the brewery into new premises, the new single-batch 'Wild, Green Hopped Pale Ale' is available at a number of pubs as listed on our page "Where to Buy".
An essential research project was embarked on - nineteen days in California and Arizona to search out some of the best craft beers in the West... "It was a tough job, but someone had to do it" said Rob Turner on his return.
A typically mundune commuting experience from one brewery to another!
The Grand Canyon helps to explain why they make their beers so big in the States!
This is a great easy recipe that is slow cooked to make the beef really tender. Oystermouth Stout is ideal because it has a less bitter taste than other stouts and the addition of real oysters in the brewing process adds a unique flavour. You could almost call this a Surf and Turf Casserole!
"Remember to buy at least two bottles, one to taste as you cook and the other for the recipe!" - Rob Turner, Mumbles Brewery head brewer.
