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

Brains launch Rising Sun to celebrate Wales in Japan

As proud sponsors of the Welsh Rugby Union we are excited to be launching Rising Sun, the latest beer joining our seasonal line-up which has been brewed specially to celebrate Wales' adventure in Japan this autumn.

Brewed with Sorachi Ace hops which originated in Japan, Rising Sun is a distinctive ale (4.0% abv) with light amber hues, a citrus & lemongrass aroma and a fresh & fruity finish. It is the perfect refreshing beer for this autumn's rugby!

Bill Dobson Brains Head Brewer said "It's been fantastic to be able to develop a beer to mark this special event. By using our own traditional approach and ingredients along with the Sorachi Ace hop that was developed in the north of Japan we've been able to produce a truly unique beer blending east and west which should be just as memorable as the rugby itself!"

This beer will be available in time for the tournament's kick off and will remain on sale right through to the final when you can raise a glass to toast Wales' victory!

Enjoy Rising Sun or any of our other beers at your local Brains pub.
