There's always something exciting going on at the Brewery. See what we've been up to recently.

Surprise visit from our brand ambassador Alun-Wyn Jones!

Earlier this year, we ran a competition with the hashtag #HeadInTheGame. We invited customers to share their photo of them ‘Cwtching in with Alun-Wyn’ using our pub standees, for their chance to meet our Brains WRU ambassador Alun-Wyn Jones himself! These ‘face in the hole’ boards were placed in various Brains pubs for people to find and have their photo with.

Our lucky winner was a gentleman named Stuart, who’s also an Osprey fan! His son Logan, plays for Tondu U9s who train in Ynysawdre so Brains thought, what better way to deliver the prize, than for Alun-Wyn to turn up to one of their training sessions!

So on a sunny Wednesday afternoon, Alun-Wyn surprised the U9s team and the boys were delighted! Once they got over their excitement, they showed off their match skills and got tips from the man himself!

Alun-Wyn also sat in a team talk and had a Q&A session at the end of his visit. The boys were thrilled to have their photos taken with him (and the parents were too!)

Keep your eyes peeled for more exciting competitions!
