Aficionados of Tomos Watkin beers will know that one of our best sellers is the very popular Cwrw Braf beer. Translated, Cwrw Braf is Welsh for Lovely Beer and is made from malted wheat and barley along with Goldings hops. Characteristically a British hop, Goldings is a delicious example of the gentle aromas that home-grown hops produce.
We describe Cwrw Braf as a clean-drinking, amber-coloured session bitter with a light bitterness and gentle hop aroma. And it’s this exceptional taste and flavour that has helped to earn its place at one of the Great Ales of Wales.
Cwrw Braf is essentially a session bitter but what does that mean? A session bitter is a beer that contains no higher than 5 percent ABV, featuring a balance between malt and hop characters with a typically, a clean finish. This combination creates a beer with high drinkability. The purpose of a session beer is to allow a beer drinker to have multiple beers, within a reasonable time period or session, without overwhelming the senses or reaching inappropriate levels of intoxication!
Cwrw Braf Stockists
Over the years, the number of bars, pubs and shops that sell Cwrw Braf has grown considerably. Over the past few weeks for example, a number of local pubs have added this session beer to their stock including The Flying Pig in Ystalyfera and The Puddlers Arms in Briton Ferry.
And it’s not just local shops that stock this beer. Cwrw Braf is also now sold by Waitrose and this is what they say on about our beer on their website:
“The great ales of Wales. Wales the TrueTaste. Gold Medalist World Beer Championships USA 2009. During tasting trials of this new Welsh beer from Tomos Watkin, our customers unwittingly christened the beer for us. On tasting this blend of traditionally floor malted wheat and barley and refreshing Golding hops, the overwhelming response was "That's lovely!". So, here it is, CWRW Braf! Lovely Beer! Does what it says on the bottle. Iechyd Da!"Cheers.” Read more here.
