Drinkers will be spoiled for choice at August’s Swansea Bay Beer & Cider Festival, with more than 150 real ales and ciders on offer.

The Swansea branch of the Campaign for Real Ale is sourcing the most exciting brews from up and down the land, including many from the Swansea area itself.

The local brewing scene has been transformed over the past few years with dozens of new microbreweries being launched in the South Wales area to quench a consumer thirst for new and original beers.

There are now more than 50 microbreweries in Wales and many of them will have beers at the festival. While large breweries and pubs have been closing during the economic downturn, microbreweries have been bucking the trend and seeing rapid growth.

Recently established local breweries producing fantastic ales include Gower Brewery, Boss Brewing, Mumbles Brewery and the also Mumbles-based Pilot Brewery. A little further afield new microbreweries include the Neath-based Borough Brewery and the Tenby Brewing Company.

This year’s event will not only feature more than 100 real ales, but also more than 60 craft-brewed ciders and perries, with a cooling system to ensure they are served at the perfect temperature.
