  • Frisco 4.4%

    A California Common brewed with San Francisco Lager Yeast and a trio of American hops; Cluster, Willamette and Chinook. This style of beer is often referred to as “steam” beer due to the relatively warm fermentation temperature.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Black Mountain 5.0%

    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.

  • Green Dragon 4.1%

    Green Dragon has been brewed to celebrate the annual British hop harvest. Fresh 'green' Progress hops from Newnham Farm in Worcester and Pilgrim hops from the gardens of our Ty Mawr pub in North Cardiff have been used to create the distinctive 'green hop' character in this refreshing pale ale.

  • 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.
