The new-look SA Pump-Clip

First brewed in 1958 there has been much confusion around the legendary ale’s name ever since.

Does it stand for Special Ale? Or Samuel Arthur? Or is it Skull Attack? And to be honest its true meaning is so lost in myth and mystery that we aren’t quite sure anymore.

Back in the day, SA was seen as a much stronger alternative to the other brews on offer which gave it a certain reputation, yet despite its full flavour, it’s surprisingly session-able!

Over time SA has become the toast of the Welsh nation. Our renowned premium bitter ale is copper coloured and has a nutty richness derived from Pale and Crystal malts and three hops; Challenger, Goldings and Fuggles.

Perfect pairings

  • Roast Chicken

    Nothing pairs better with SA than a tender chicken roast - both simple and delicious.
