545: Tomos Watkins - Cwrw Braf

20180712_180521The brewery: “Tomos Watkin first operated from a small brewery in Llandeilo, Carmarthenshire and later opened a larger brewery in Swansea.  Tomos Watkin now brew a wide selection of beverages from their brewery in the Swansea Enterprise Park.  They have two distribution centres based in Fforestfach Industrial Estate, Swansea and Van Road, Caerphilly.”

The beer: “"koo-roo-bràrve"Cwrw Braf is a clean-drinking, amber-coloured ale with a light bitterness and gentle hop aroma.A session bitter yet, with all the flavours and quality you would expect from a Tomos Watkin premium ale.”

We were delighted to finally get to meet up with fellow caravanner Paul during our stay at the lovely Llwynifan Farm Caravan park near Llanelli. Paul arrived on site with an esky full of Welsh ales, none of which I’d had before. This was the first and overall my favourite. A good no nonsense bitter, I would have happily drunk this all night if there wasn’t so much other ‘research’ material to get through. 4.2% A.B.V. July 2018
