At Conwy Brewery we produce a range of cask & bottle conditioned ales suitable for all tastes & occasions. We use soft water from the mountains of Snowdonia, malts from Bairds' of Lincolnshire & hops from around the world. No artificial ingredients are used and the all the beers are naturally carbonated with no filtering or pasteurisation. Our bottled beers are suitable for vegetarians.
We have 4 brands.
Conwy ales, very popular ales available all year designed to have broad appeal - the best in British real ale styles.
Seasonal ales - special beers available at different times of year adding a bit of variety to what we do.
West Coast - Showcasing modern beer styles. Availabity varies but we usually try to have at least one from the range.
Small batch brews - Limited edition brews where we try something new each month, could be a new beer style, new hops or something from the archive
