About Us

The Waen Brewery was started in 2009 by Sue Hayward and John Martin and very quickly outgrew its original site in Penstrowed near Newtown.

In 2010 and 2011 they won Gold and Silver medals for their beers in the SIBA Wales and West Competition and qualified for the National Championships with 2015 seeing the brewery adding a further six gold medals – including both keg beer and small beer of the competition – to their ever growing plethora of accolades. Their now internationally known Blackberry Stout has been on BBC2, featured in two Beer Writer of the Year winners’ Top 50 Beers in the Publican’s Morning Advertiser and has a page all to itself in Melissa Coles’s recent book, ‘Let me Tell You about Beer’.

Waen beers can be purchased directly through our Eebria page simply by clicking https://www.eebria.com/waen-brewery and there’s always a heavy presence of our beers at The Old Mill bar, located minutes away from the brewery itself righ in the heart of picturesque Llanidloes!
