Brecon Brewery (Wales)

The second stop on my two week break was in Wales in the town of Brecon in the middle of some very beautiful mountains.

Love the Welsh. Don't understand it at all, but love it none the less.

The brewmaster, Buster was a great host. I helped fill a few firkins and then took a ride up to an old mining town in wales called Rhymney, to get some supplies. Here are some photos of that brewery.

The next day I rode with Buster to drop off some high alcohol beer he brewed for a micro distillery called Da Mihle It was an amazing place. Here are some photos of that visit.

I had a real blast in Wales and I thank Buster for the great places he took me to and explained so much of the cultural history and sights.
