Real ale drinkers have more than ever to choose from in Swansea’s city centre.
And this Thursday, 10 December is a date for your diary, when the Gravity Station on the Strand hosts a brewery takeover night.
The Gravity Station’s Sue Hayward said: “We will have the lovely folks of First Chop Brewing Arm coming down to party and tell you all about their lovely beers.
“Operating out of a railway arch in sunny Salford, First Chop Brewing Arm are crafty brewers of the highest order, producing a range of uncompromising, hop-forward brews.
“Join us Thursday from 7pm to taste some of their range. We will have 10 First Chop beers on tap.”
Meanwhile, the Bryn Y Mor in Brynymor Road reopened after a major refurbishment on December 4 and now has five real ales on draught. Two will be regulars and the other three will rotate.
They offer Camra members a 10 per cent discount on beer and also serve food.
The Griffin (formerly Varsity) in Wind Street, which offers three to four real ales, is now also offering a 10% Camra discount too.
New to the scene is Hogarths on St Mary’s Street (formerly Chicago Rock and Retros), which has been serving five to six real ales since it opened at £2 to £2.40 a pint and has just added a real cider as well.
You can also enjoy a 10 per cent discount and a great range of real ales at the No Sign on Wind Street and the Gravity Station on the Strand.
Other havens for real drinkers include the Queen’s Hotel on Gloucester Place, the Bank Statement on Wind Street and the Potter’s Wheel on the Kingsway.
