‘Ale Wyn’ was created in collaboration with the newly-appointed Wales captain, so you know it’ll be a champion brew.

Alun-Wyn Jones, an official Brains ambassador, recently visited the Cardiff Brewery in the heart of the Welsh capital to select the blend of malts and hops for his own ale. Carared and Rye Crystal malts give hints of dark chocolate and roasted coffee. Waimea and Amarillo hops bring bold citrus and pine flavours for a balanced and satisfying bitterness.

‘Ale Wyn’, a deep-red IPA, will be behind the bar of Brains pubs for the duration of the RBS 6 Nations and early demand for the collaboration brew has been high.
