July 2016 Update
It has been 3 years since Ian and Domi first brewed in Cardigan, and since then Mantle Brewery has gained some great momentum both regionally and further away. To add to the awards already won for Dark Heart (5.2% Porter) and Dis-Mantle (5.8% Amber Ale), in May2016 Mantle brewery picked up a gold award for its premium 5.0% lager Hoodwinked in the premium Lager category at the Ludlow Wales and West SIBA competition. Hoodwinked has proved really popular amongst both craft ale and lager drinkers with its refreshing, crisp but subtle fruity finish. Available in bottles and occasionally in Cask & Craft Keg.
Demand for Mantle Brewery beers has been exceeding the breweries capacity, and so the next logical step was to add some new fermentation vessels to enable the capacity to increase. With the addition of two extra vessels in the fermentation room, fermentation capacity in the brewery has now increased by nearly 3 times its 2015 level. This has also enabled the business to increase its team. Josh has been working for the brewery since 2014 and more recently, Owen has joined the team to help keep on top of the busy brewing environment. With a greater capacity and more hands on the ground, we are now able to satisfy an increasing demand for our beer. This also raises the possibility of introducing some new beers in the future so watch this space!!!
Mantle brewery not only supplies local and regional pubs, shops and restaurants with cask and bottled beers, but the brewery is also open to the public. The brewery is situated on the Pentood Ind. Est. in Cardigan Town. From bottle gift packs & cask ale carry outs (from 2 pints to 36 pints) to merchandise and T-shirts, there is a great offering for the craft beer lover.
March 2015 Update
Bragdy Mantle / Mantle Brewery have introduced another great ale to join their current range. DIS-MANTLE, a 5.8% deep amber ale is a full flavoured beer with a great malt complexity, perfectly complimented with hops that give a pleasant bitterness with dark fruit flavours lingering to coax along that next sup. This brew was designed to celebrate the great flavours of UK & European hops.
