549: Gower - Rumour


20180712_204455The brewery: “The idea of starting a microbrewery had been discussed many times. We were already running two busy pubs in the Gower, so forming a microbrewery was the natural next step.The company was formed in September 2011. We acquired a 5 barrel brew plant in October and renovated our building. Walls, floor, ceiling... the lot. The brew plant was installed in November, with haste to try and hit our goal of brewing on the 11th of the 11th of the 11th!  We managed it. Our 1st brew (Brew1)  was completed at around 4pm on 11/11/11. Not a date we'll forget in a hurry.”

The beer: A strong ruby red ale, with amazing complex tastes and aromas, produced from a delicate mix of malts and hops.“

One of the sweeter ruby ales to grace my palate but enjoyable nonetheless and in excellent condition as all the Gower beers have been. A big thanks once again to Paul for a very thorough evenings research….July 2018
