Café Phoenix 4.4%

A rich, dark and smooth coffee porter

A rich, dark Porter with flavours of caramel, toffee and coffee. This smooth brew blends seven malts, adding complexity and depth of flavour. Café Phoenix is accentuated with a coffee blend exclusive to Brains, chosen for its mellow but full flavour.

Permanently available in 2017

Barry Island IPA 5.0%*

untappd reviews

Created by Simon Martin, aka Mr Real Ale Guide, this India Pale Ale was inspired by the ‘IPA revolution’ across the pond. The boy from Barry has used a trio of hops from the US in this pale coloured ale, which is bursting with citrus aromas. A unique smooth malt taste upfront is finished off by a vigorous bitterness and a ‘tidy’ clout of citrus and berry hop flavours.  

*5% ABV on draught and 6% ABV in 330ml bottle

Permanently available in 2017  

Ale Wyn 5.0%

Putting the Al into Ale

This deep-red IPA was created in collaboration with Alun Wyn Jones, so you know it’ll be a champion brew. Thanks to a blend of Carared and Rye Crystal malts, you’ll find hints of dark chocolate and roasted coffee. Waimea and Amarillo hops bring bold citrus and pine flavours for a balanced and satisfying bitterness.   

Available February/March 2017 

Polar Beer 5.0%

A sunshine yellow, blonde ale

Polar Beer is a sunshine yellow blonde ale, brewed with Polaris, a new-generation German hop. We’ve commemorated our first use of this hop by naming the beer after it, Polaris being another name for Pole or North Star. Ale and lager malts combine to create a smooth, crisp malty base with a sweet nose, followed by refreshingly light and distinctive herbal flavours from the Polaris hop.

Available March 2017

Brown Sauce 5.0%

brown ale brewed in collaboration with Glynn Davis

A hoppy, brown ale brewed in collaboration with journalist and beer writer, Glynn Davis. Enjoy toffee and caramel flavours, along with hints of coffee and liquorice and fresh, citrus notes to finish. 

Available March 2017

Melba 4.2%

Melba is a new beer in our Single Hop Range. Melba or “The Dame of Hops” as it is affectionately known, is an Australian hop added at three different stages of the brewing process to impart its clean, spicy bitterness, with aroma and flavours of passion fruit, grapefruit and citrus.

Available April 2017   

Terry's 4.5%

Terry's is a chocolate and orange porter brewed with Premium, Crystal, Brown and Chocolate malts. The addition of cacao nibs in the boil gives a luxurious and intense chocolate flavour with a bittersweet finish, with sweet orange peel providing a zesty orange aroma. This is a beer definitely not for sharing. 

Available May 2017

Magnum PA 4.2%

Magnum PA is a pale ale brewed with Amber and Crystal malts and Magnum, Pacifica and Apollo hops. Golden amber in colour, sweet biscuity malt flavours combine with a sharp bitterness from the hops. 

Available June 2017
