Cwrw wins gold award at True Taste of Wales awards

Award winning Brewer Evan-Evans was voted the top Welsh drink at the True Taste of Wales Awards at Abergavenny last night (Nov 19).

The award is the second major prize for the company’s brands in the last 12 months.

The company was voted the third best brewer in the UK in the Best Bitter Category at the Great British Beer Festival, the UK’s leading consumer Beer Festival.

Chief executive Simon Buckley said: “This year my family celebrate 240 years of family brewing in Wales.
“We have had a record year for winning awards.

“Cwrw has been voted the best beer in Wales for draught beer, and now for the bottled version.
“I am extremely proud to win this award in this very special year for us as a family.

“I am also very proud to be carrying on the tradition of brewing great beers.

“We hope that Cwrw will now become the National Ale of Wales.

“This award is a huge credit to our brewing team in Llandeilo, and they are now unquestionably the best brewing team in the specialist market in Wales.

“We are now brewing for some of the biggest national and regional brewers in the UK, and hope to launch a series of new cask ale brands in the early spring.

“There is little question that the market is difficult and likely to get worse, but there is no doubt that winning these awards will keep us at the very top of Welsh brewing.”

The brewery is based in Llandeilo West Wales.
