Brewery of the Week: Purple Moose Brewery

A "40-Barrel" micro-brewery based in the small town of Porthmadog, North Wales. The Purple Moose Brewery have been brewing away since mid-2005. Starting with a one-off special pale ale called "No.1". Nowadays they have a core selection including the multi award-winning Snowdonia Ale and Dark Side of the Moose.

Cwrw Eryri/Snowdonia Ale is a fine golden pale ale brewed using pale and crystal malts and a blend of aromatic hops to produce a refreshing and full flavour. The perfect thirst-quencher after a hard day's walking in the glorious mountains of Snowdonia.
Ochr Dywyll y Mws/Dark Side of the Moose is a delicious dark ale brewed using a delicate blend of dark crystal malt, roasted barley and Bramling Cross hops the 'Dark Side' exhibits a rich malty flavour balanced with fruity bitterness.

They pride themselves on sourcing water locally from the Welsh mountains and using natural ingredients in their brews. Purple Moose put a lot back into their home with a brewery shop in Porthmadog that sells Welsh products, putting on local events, supporting Welsh breweries and even putting in funds to renovate a railway wagon to carry Purple Moose booze along the Welsh Highland Heritage railway to recreate historical deliveries and to visit local beer and food events.

We also have in stock a couple of beers from the seasonal/craft selection:
Calon Lân/Calon Lân – An amber coloured bitter specially brewed each year for the Rugby Six Nations. Offers a floral aroma with a pleasant fruity hop finish.
Chocolate Moose – A smooth, rich stout with lingering chocolate and vanilla flavours, followed up with a nicely balanced subtle bitterness.

Purple Moose also feature in our Welsh Pride Collection, a 12 bottle case of beers from the finest Welsh breweries
