Radnorshire Ales are made using our own spring water, roasted barley and a variety of hops including Fuggles, Bramling Cross, Northdown and East Kent Golding. They are distinctive in flavour and the names derive from local landmarks in and around the beautiful Radnor valley.

 

Whimble Gold is a light and hoppy golden ale, made with a mix of Old and New world hops: Citra, Challenger and East Kent Goldings. 3.8%ABV 

Situated above New radnor, Whimble marks the Southern entrance of the Radnor Forest. Legends tells that the last dragons in Wales lies sleeping somewhere in the Forest; the four churches of Llanfihangel Nant Melon, Cefyllys, Rhydithon and Cascob, dedicated to                      St Michael the dragon-slayer, encircle the forest to keep the beast at bay.

 

Water-Break-Its Neck is styled on the classic American Pale Ale. Weighing in at a thumping 5.7% ABV, this beer is best drunk with friends and a modicum of care!

Water-Break-Its-Neck is a waterfall in a deep gorge just to the West of New Radnor and was a favourite destination with Victorian picnic parties.Local tradition also states that it was one of Llewelyn ap Gruffydd's hideouts during the final struggle for Welsh independence.

 

Mixen Black is a dark dry stout made with plenty of roasted barley to give it a rich, malty flavour. 5% ABV

Smatcher Tawney is a mellow tawney coloured farmhouse ale brewerd using three English hops: Fuggles, Bramling Cross and Northdown.4.2% AB

To the South of New Radnor, Smatcher Wood is one of the most infamous hills in the vintage sports car Welsh trial. Since 1939, it's steep and muddy forest tracks have provided a real challenge to competitors in this annual ralley usually held on the first weekend of October, where pre 1930's cars ascend the slopes with gusto.

However, it has been suggested that there were originally five, one becoming the font at Old Radnor Church.
