Heart of Wales - Llanwrtyd Wells


Heart of Wales LogoThe concept of the Heart of Wales Brewery came into being shortly after moving into the Neuadd Arms Hotel, as the owners realised how much the locals appreciated good real ales. An initial brew was produced in 2004 using local spring water through a friend’s brewery, especially for the Mid Wales Beer Festival held in the town each November. The ale “Blaen Gwennol” (named after the spring) was so well received that they felt there was definitely the potential to build on this success. The brewery became a reality with the renovation of the derelict stables situated behind the Neuadd Arms Hotel.

Irfon Valley Bitter (3.6% ABV)

The Heart of Wales "session" bitter is Irfon Valley Bitter, brewed at 3.6% abv as an answer to those keg beer drinkers who claim that real ales are too strong for them, and to those ale drinkers who reckon that anything below 4% is flavourless.

Heart of Wales Inn Stable AleInn Stable (6.8% ABV)

The final addition to the Heart of Wales line-up of regulars is Inn Stable, aimed to please those who look for an ale "with a bit of a kick". At 6.8% abv it requires a little respect, particularly with its deceptive smoothness and the ease with which it goes down.
