Bragdy Twt Lol
“We discovered Philip nestled in the South Wales valleys, brewing his incredible range of craft ales, each with their own legend and story. We are passionate about what Wales has to offer, and Phil’s range of Welsh inspired ales encompasses this passion. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do.”
Bragdy Twt Lol was established in 2015, based on a foundation of enthusiasm and trade experience. Our goal was to be unashamedly different from the other commercial breweries. With the luxury of being able to innovate on a small scale, we are able to try things larger breweries wouldn’t dare, giving you the quality and variety you deserve. Our beers have been honed through years of experience, transposed into a fresh look at craft ale.
Bragdy Twt Lol is deliberately run by a very small team. We like to keep ourselves busy, operating at our maximum brewing capacity of ten brewer’s barrels. That’s the equivalent of 1,600 litres or 3,200 bottles per brew! This means you will only find our beer in taverns, shops and outlets where they are as passionate about craft ale as we are.
At the helm is myself, Philip Thomas, an exile from the Rhymney Valley who now lives in a few valleys over to the west in the Rhondda valley. My passion for craft ale and the Welsh language was the impetus for Bragdy Twt Lol. The brewery, nestled in the Taf valley on the Trefforest Industrial Estate is open to see on Fridays between 9am-5pm.
At the same time as undertaking the serious task of brewing the finest ales, we also like to have a bit of fun.
Bragdy Twt Lol is a play on words in Welsh, which is not easy to translate! The Welsh language is tremendously important to us, and we hope to show the world how much fun we find both the Welsh and English languages. We’ll continue to mould, craft and blend our languages using local folklore and interesting stories from further afield to inspire and expand our range of mischief and quality ales.
"At the heart of our belief is to treat beer with respect, taking time to put forward the best recipes."
