When the rain comes in from the South, the beacons wander closer to Brecon

Well, that was an eventful year! We’re extraordinarily glad that everyone has taken to Brecon Brewing’s range of fine beers and are looking forward to world domination in 2012 – or at least spreading the word (and the ale) further!

Look out for the Six Beacons which will be launched in time for a certain upcoming rugby tournament, to be closely followed by Genesis 1:ii Prohpet Porter (very limited quantities, orders being taken now).

Meanwhile we hope you all have a fantastic Hogmanay and wish you a prosperous and happy new year.

Christmas is almost upon us but there’s no rest at the workhouse!

We’ve been chatting with our hi-tech guru and plan to have the online shop open soon in the New Year; beer, t-shirts, glasses, more beer – you know the kind of stuff. Sorry it wasn’t in time for Christmas but you can buy some great presents for Easter instead!

Meanwhile, if you’re lucky enough to be local you can drop into the brewery any weekday between 9 & 5 to pick up your festive supplies.

Also being developed are two ‘specials’, Six Beacons and Genesis I:ii – Prophet Porter.

Six Beacons, at 4.1%, will be a tasty session beer and an ideal accompaniment to the rugby. The pumpclip has been designed to reflect our complete impartiality and features all six competing nations’ flags with (fairly) equal prominence. The tag-line on the clip displays our obvious concern in this respect…though you will need an ability to read Welsh!

Genesis I:ii – Prophet Porter is the much anticipated sequel to our first ever beer and marks the 9th anniversary of Buster’s arrival in Brecon. This full-flavoured 5.6% aged porter gives him the chance to play in the brewery (sorry, that should be ‘display his expertise’) and promises to be a belter.

Landlords order now, it’s only going to be available for a short time and in very limited numbers.

Oh, ’twas on the Tuesday morning-O the gas man came to call…and fitted the supply to the mains! This will give us increased efficiency when brewing (better beer) and more economical production (cheaper beer – until the Chancellor puts his oar in) when finally hooked up in January.

So Christmas is almost upon us, or at least the shopping frenzy associated with it.

To satisfy the spending lusts of the Brecon populace Duncan will be in the market hall tomorrow dispensing cheer & beer as part of the Brecon Christmas Farmers Market. 5 litre (just under 9 pints in old money) mini-casks of fine Brecon Brewing ales will be on offer. If you like you can even have a pint while shopping!

Buster on the other hand is on a pilgrimage to the East. Well, Reading and London to be more specific. Look out for our beer over Christmas in The Nags Head, Reading and quality bars around the capital.

Ho, Ho and, what was it again? Oh yes, Ho!
