BreweryWelcome to Tinworks

From a town that is filled with history and heritage comes Wales’s newest brewery. I will be writing a blog every week to keep you all up to date with all things Tinworks.

Firstly let me introduce myself. My name is Matthew. I’m the owner/brewer at Tinworks. I am the one man playing all the instruments at the brewery. It’s been around 10 years since I picked up a home brew kit and I haven’t stopped dreaming about opening my very own brewery.

Ten months ago I decided to take the plunge! The first headache was coming up with a name. I didn’t only have to come up with a name for the brewery but for our first born child as well. It was a lot easier to name Annie let me tell you. But on those sleepiness nights I started thinking about what Llanelli is known and loved for. It was obvious, it had to be Tinworks Brewing Co. I wanted to bring Llanelli’s history back alive. Remind people that Llanelli is a great town and it has been for centuries.

Looking forward we want to make Tinworks a household name in Wales. With everyone’s support we want to expand to a bigger premises by the end of the year. We are currently brewing on a 200 litre system. We would love to be brewing on a 1500 litre system or even more. Then we will be able to stock a Tinworks Bar that we will hope to open beginning of next year.

I’ll be back with another blog next week. But if we can answer any questions please send us a message and we will try our best to answer.

But for now it’s back to brewing our core range. Getting them spot on ready for release.

      Hi Andrew, at the tee are still testing and dialling in the recipes. It’s not far off. But we want it to be perfect. It will be stocked at our online shop and various pubs around Llanelli. Follow us on Facebook/Twitter/instagram for updates.
