A number of new micro-pubs have opened in North Wales in recent months, including new establishments in Llandudno, Colwyn Bay and Rhyl.
The Daily Post highlighted the trend while reporting on the opening of the latest such bar - MASH Micropub at the Conwy Brewery site in Llysfaen.
According to the news provider, there have been a number of pub closures in the region over recent months, so the rise of the micro-pub is bucking the trend.
Speaking to the publication, owner of Conwy Brewery Gwynne Thomas said that the area around Llysfaen has been “particularly hard hit with pub closures”.
He explained that opening this bar was always on the cards for the company. “When we moved to Llysfaen, it was always part of the plan to open a brewery tap,” he revealed. Drinkers can now pop in for a pint of the local brew, or choose from a variety of other drinks that are on sale.
Mr Thomas said that they’d learned after their experience at The Albion in Conwy, noting that they know they need to “look after our ale drinkers but we also want to source a range of other drinks to satisfy other drinkers”.
It isn’t only beer and ale that’s proving popular in North Wales though. The Daily Post recently reported on the rise of cocktails in the region, pointing to a new cocktail bar training centre that’s been set up to ensure bartenders have the skills they need to cater for this market.
