Purple Moose Brewery

Although I’m not a beer drinker, the Purple Moose Brewery and its award-winning beers caught my attention. What’s not to love about a purple moose? With creatively named brews like Stag Light Ale, Dark Wobbly Antlers, and Muddled Moose, I could almost like beer….

Established in 2005, the microbrewery is located in Porthmadog, North Wales. Its four standard offerings consist of Snowdonia Ale (3.6% alcohol)—a pale ale named CAMRA Champion Beer of Wales 2009; Madog’s Ale (3.7%)—a malty bitter; Glaslyn Ale (4.2%)—a fruity bitter, twice named “best bitter”; and Dark Side of the Moose (4.6%)—a dark ale that twice won the “strong mild & old ales” category at the Champion Winter Beer of Britain Competition. These beers are available in bottles or casks.

The Purple Moose Brewery’s seasonal brews include Cadair Idris (4.3%)—one of a series of beers named for local mountain ranges, and Merry X-Moose (5.0%)—a ruby color ale that is brewed with darker malts. The most recent seasonal offering, Easter Ale (3.9%), is described as “an easy drinking chestnut session bitter with a fruity hop finish.” It will be available in pubs starting March 22. With the exception of Merry X-Moose, the seasonal ales are available in casks only.
