Why Hafod Brewery are part of Taste North East Wales…
Hafod Brewery are opening the doors of their Mold Brewery as part of Taste North East Wales on Saturday 12 October. The family run company started brewing in Gwernymynydd 2011 and has now opened a 15-barrel brewhouse in Gas Lane Mold where the tour will take place. The original one-barrel facility is still used by owner and head brewer Phill Blanchard as a test bed for new brews and for making some of their small batch beers.
Over the years Phill has created over 50 different beers from Iron Age ale to IPAs, all from the four basic ingredients that make up a good ale: malted barley, hops, water and yeast. Phill says ‘as with all great food & drink, it comes down to the quality of the ingredients and the care taken in preparing them. We can’t wait to show people around and we’re so pleased to be part of Taste North East Wales. It’s a great way to highlight the amazing local food & drink in this area’.
The business is truly a family concern with Phill as head brewer, sister Suzanne and brother in law Martin handling the sales, marketing and administration of the business with Mum & Dad helping out in the brew house, with deliveries and at shows and events.
The cask, keg and bottled beers can be found in pubs, hotels, shops and cafes throughout North Wales including the Fat Boar, Plas Hafod Hotel, Edenshine Restaurant, Caffi Florence, the Olive Tree Deli, Porters Deli and many more.
There are usually 3 core cask ales for trade and wholesale customers plus seasonal limited-edition beers such as Moel FamauAle which is a rich dark beer inspired by and infused with the smoked heather from the stunning Clwydian Range local to the brewery.
