For the first time in over eighty years, Bridgend now has its very own brewery. Neil Randle is the ‘Beermeister General’, the owner of the new brewery, Bang-On Brewery, which is based at Bridgend Industrial Estate. Bridgend AM Carwyn Jones was delighted to attend a recent open afternoon held at the brewery, to meet Neil and to have a tour around the brewery. Mr Jones said that it was interesting to hear about how Neil had spent the past year building up the brewery from scratch and to see it up and running.
All the craft beers have names such as Doris, Steven, Arthur, Monty and Vera to name but a few.
Mr Jones said ” It is great to see a new start-up here in Bridgend and the open afternoon attracted quite a crowd. We know that there is a real demand for many different types of real ale and we have seen that grow over the years.”
