The Gower Brewery is based on the Crofty Industrial Estate in Penclawdd, North Gower. We produce handcrafted ales of the highest standards using traditional methods and only the finest quality ingredients.
Inspired by the love of a great beer and the lack of a brewery on the Gower Peninsula, Gower Brewery was born. Established in 2011, we are one of the fastest growing breweries in Wales.
Gower Gold (4.5% abv) is our best seller. A refreshing, Welsh, golden ale. Brewed with Maris Otter Malt and the distinctive citrus flavor and aroma of cascade hops.
Gower Power (5.5% abv) is a close contender. Like all our ales, this is brewed using traditionally floor malted barley. To balance the powerful alcohol content, this beer is endowed with a good dollop of quality whole hops. The result is a warming, malt, fruity strong Welsh Ale.
Whilst the above two are the most popular, we also have a few others to try too. Our Lighthouse (4.5% abv) lager is a refreshing continental style lager packed with flavor and classic lager hop varieties from the Czech Republic.
Smugglers Cider (4.8% abv) is relatively new. It’s a refreshing medium dry, crisp cider. With its name derived from the imaginative coves around the Gower coastline which are steeped in history.
When you’re in and around Mumbles, you’ll notice the Gower brands are readily available for you to purchase whilst in the pubs, bars and restaurants or even to buy in the supermarkets so you can take them away and enjoy in the peace and tranquility of your holiday accommodation.
There’s a shop based here in the brewery too which is open 9am – 4.30pm Monday – Friday, where you’ll find the whole range of what’s available. If a look around the Brewery is something you’d be interested in, we do offer mini tours, subject to availability. Prices are £10 per adult (over 18) and £5 for U18. For more information with regards to the tours please contact 01792 850681 as these need to be pre-booked. www.gowerbrewery.com/
