UK pub chain JD Wetherspoon is currently running a St David’s Day Real Ale Festival that features beer from breweries across Wales. I’m not sure whether this mini beer festival is available in Wetherspoons pubs outside of Wales.

The festival runs between Friday 26th February and Sunday March 7th and will feature 16 ales from Brains, Evan Evans, Rhymney, Celt Experience, Breconshire, Bullmastiff, Conwy and Vale of Glamorgan. The amount of beers available at any one time will vary and depend on each pub. One pub in Newport had just one Welsh ale on whilst another had 7.

St David's Beer Festival

The full list of beers on offer is:-

  • Brains – St David’s Ale
  • Brains – Reverend James
  • Breconshire – Cribyn
  • Breconshire – Red Dragon
  • Bullmastiff – Iechyd Da
  • Bullmastiff – Son of a Bitch
  • Celt Experience – Celt Golden
  • Celt Experience – Cwrw Dewi Sant
  • Conwy – Welsh Pride
  • Conwy – St David’s Ale
  • Evan Evans – Cwrw
  • Evan Evans – Dewi Sant
  • Rhymney – Dark
  • Rhymney – Export
  • Vale of Glamorgan – Fee Fi Fo Fum
  • Vale of Glamorgan – Wheats Occurring
  • As well as the Welsh beer, each pub serves Welsh food such as cawl and dragon sausages (obviously not made from real dragons) and they have a special offer of faggots and peas and pint for £4.99.
