    A-Pork-Alypse 4.5%

    A-Pork-Alypse is a double-chocolate and bacon porter inspired by the eclectic brews of the States. Made up of a grist of Chocolate, Brown, Dark Crystal and Smoked malt, with freshly grilled bacon and cacao nibs added to the boil, A-Pork-Alypse has the nose of a bag of pork scratching with flavours of delicious chocolate and smoked meatiness. This is a porky porter you’ll either love or hate.

    Cambrian Pale 4.6%

    Brewed to celebrate the opening of Brains Craft Brewery bar, The Cambrian Tap. Pale ale and cara malts form a smooth, sweet, malty beer that has been generously hopped with Mandarina Bavaria and Mosaic to give vibrant, fruity orange and tangerine flavours and aromas, balanced with a clean, crisp bitterness.

    Black Mountain 5%

    Black Mountain was brewed in collaboration with The Craft Beer Channel and if you close your eyes it smells like a classic American pale ale, but Black Mountain is bigger than that. It starts with coffee, liquorice and burnt toffee. Then, after a few seconds there’s an explosion of hops from the mountain of Amarillo, Pacifica, Citra, Summit and Apollo, before the final say goes to the Chocolate malts and their moreish smoky finish.

    Bragging Rights 5.0%

    Based on an ancient Welsh beer style called bragawd, Bragging Rights is a lightly golden pale ale. The addition of honey, followed by a blend of nutmeg, coriander, black pepper, cloves, cinnamon and ginger, create a refreshing beer that is initially sweet yet spicy at the same time.

    Café Phoenix 4.4%

    Café Phoenix is a rich, dark and smooth Porter with flavours of caramel, toffee and coffee. It blends seven malts, with each adding to the beer’s complexity and depth of flavour, from the sweet caramel notes of Crystal through to the roasted flavours from Brown, Chocolate and Carafa III. Single-hopped with UK Phoenix, a hop that adds flavours of molasses and chocolate, Café Phoenix is accentuated with a coffee blend exclusive to Brains, selected for its mellow but full flavour.

    Polar Beer 5.0%

    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.
