Aled, one of our passionate about beer brewers is doing the London Marathon (April 23rd 2023) & Snowdon 24 Race (July 8th – 9th 2023) for Cancer Research Wales and we will put whatever we raise into that pot. He has got a task ahead – his target is £2500; his training is well under way, and his intention is to do the Snowdon / Wyddfa run up and down 7 times in that 24-hour period!

Our founder and MD Lawrence is also doing the London Marathon for the same cause which is bumping our fundraising target up to £4000.


Purple Moose is the umbrella company housing three different businesses under the helm. The campaign will run from all business branches and online and social.

Purple Moose Brewery is based in the historic harbour town of Porthmadog, nestled in the beautiful foothills of Snowdonia, North Wales. Our multi award-winning beers are brewed with love and passion using entirely UK malted barley and water from the hills of Snowdonia.

Famous for their exceptional taste and quality, our beers have won over 100 major awards, including Gold in category at the CAMRA Champion Beer of Britain competition, and ‘Best Welsh Speciality’ at the Great Taste Awards.

The primary business is the Brewery, the founding arm of the business established in 2004. Online sales, trade and third-party consumer sales are attributed to this section of the business.

Then there is the retail arm consisting of the original shop in Porthmadog and more recently the second shop in Betwys-y-Coed .

The third arm is the brewery tap, The Australia.

Until recently this was only part owned but has become fully owned by the owner of the business in the last few months of 2022.

We are very proud of our beers – both the core range and the craft range.
