It was a tough choice figuring out where to film this month - from being a virtual beer desert a few months ago, Wales is now bursting with great craft beers. I say Wales, but we only really did south Wales - and only really scratched the surface there. Hopefully we can go back and do central and north Wales, and look at people like Waen and Purple Moose.
Each of these pubs was the kind of place you want to spend an entire day in. We did also want to film in a Brain's pub. They're a pretty glaring omission from a South Walean beer blog. Unfortunately we were told we had to ask permission from head office to film in a Brain's pub. I attempted to get this permission by both phone and e-mail. Two weeks later, I'm still waiting to hear back from them. Shame.
Anyway - here goes...

And after doing the ingredients of beer last month, this month Mr Amor shows us around his brewhouse.

Hope you enjoy watching them. If yiou do, please link to them if you can - we're trying to maximise traffic so we can gain interest from other places to help get the message about British craft beer out to a broader audience.
Next month we're in London, filming a London beer week at my local, the Jolly Butchers.
