About Mantle Brewery
Mantle Brewery started brewing on its 10 Barrel brew plant in August 2013. The first ever cask out of the cold room, a cask of Cwrw Teifi went straight to the Eagle Inn in Cardigan on September 1st 2013, our nearest pub. T’was a day to remember.
The brewery was founded by Ian & Domi Kimber, and together with Owen, Adam, Aled & Ian B, we brew great beer. The same care and attention goes into each and every brew, each and every step in the process, each and every cask, keg and bottle.
