West Wales brewery launches limited edition beer for Rugby World Cup

Carmarthenshire’s award winning Brewer, Evan Evans, has kicked off its support for Wales’ Rugby World Cup campaign with the launch of a brand new Go Reds Beer. The dark amber premium beer has been especially brewed for the 2019 Rugby World Cup.

Go Reds is the first Welsh Rugby World Cup beer to be launched in Wales for the start of the tournament. The new beer has been created by Evan-Evans’ Head Brewer, James Buckley, the seventh generation of the famous Buckley brewing family.

James Buckley said: “This is a new beer and one that rugby fans will enjoy throughout the tournament. I have looked to create a beer that is rich in malt, with a subtle bitterness and fruity hop palette. A real session beer, to be enjoyed with great rugby.”

The Rugby World Cup starts on Friday, 20 September and Wales’ first game is against Georgia on Monday, 23 September.

Evan-Evans Brewery is Wales’ leading cask ale brewery and is the largest exporter of specialist beer in Wales. The family have been proudly brewing beer in Wales since 1767. That’s seven generations of brewing passion and expertise passed down through the Buckley family. At the brewer’s home, Evan Evans Brewery, based in Llandeilo, Carmarthenshire, both traditional and contemporary styled beers are brewed, as well as organic, gluten-free and vegan-friendly choices.

Each of the prestigious brands offer something unique and different – all brewed using the finest ingredients and all thoroughly rewarding. Many of the recipes used in the brewery today come from the Buckley family recipe book – a unique heritage handed down over the years between family members.
