827: Conwy | Clogwyn Gold

The brewery: "Solar generation system on the roof of brewery which reduces electricity consumption by approximately 30%......Spent Grain is re-used as cattle feed.....Waste Beer, Yeast & Hops & Wort is re-used in Anaerobic Digestion to generate Energy........We use very little water in making our beer with 3 Litres of Water used to produce 1 Litre of beer, this is well below the industry standard of 5:1......Our beers are Cask & Bottle Conditioned. This means very little cooling is required (cooling uses LOTS of energy)......No expensive chemicals & no Filtration (Filtration can produce as much as 20% waste beer, Not Good!) By doing this we get better tasting beer as well as helping the environment."

The beer: "Golden Hoppy Ale"

Not big on descriptions, nor on the history of the brewery that I could find. Anyway, a pleasant enough beer but as regulars will know, not really to my taste. Bottle conditioned so needs careful storing and pouring. 40.% A.B.V.
