Felinfoel Brewing Co
The Felinfoel Brewing Co is situated in ‘Felinfoel’, a small village adjoining Llanelli in Wales.
Historians tell us that in the old days the inn brewed its own beer, but only during the winter months. The keeping qualities and the strength of the beers, therefore, were of prime importance and the popularity of ‘ Felinfoel Beer’ led to the local inn brewing for other inns in the locality. This, in turn, led to the present brewery being built in 1878 to accommodate demand.
The brewery has enjoyed many successes with their beers, winning many awards. 1976 was a particularly good year with the brewery clearing the board at the brewers exhibition winning gold medals for ‘Double Dragon’ and ‘Traditional Bitter’ and taking the international cup for the best draught beer exhibited – ‘Double Dragon’ thus Felinfoel can rightly claim to be “Champion brewers”.
The brewery is still an independant family concern and the present managing director represents the fifth generation, with an ongoing committment to carrying on brewing for many more generations.
