Welcome to Greytrees

People in the Cynon Valley, like most places around the world, used to drink local beer which was crafted in one of the many brew-houses of our area.

By 2011 this had all changed. Everyone in the pub I was running drank mass-produced lager. The bland boring global brands dominated. The independent breweries were gone.

So, after a century of decline in the craft ale industry, I set off on a mission to get people excited and enthusiastic about drinking proper beer again. And while I was at it, I wanted to create a great independent business that I’d grow, to create jobs and wealth in my community, Aberdare in the beautiful South Wales Valleys.
