The latest 'Iechyd Da' beer column from Llandeilo brewer Simon Buckley

The latest 'Iechyd Da' beer column for the Carmarthen Journal newspaper, written by award-winning brewer Simon Buckley, chief executive of Llandeilo-based Evan-Evans Brewery

Well, dear readers, it’s summer time; time for golden beers, lazy days and the thrill of trying new beers.
Time for the brewery cricket team to find their kit and get ready for the Llandeilo ‘Ashes’ series (more of that in due course) and time for you to try some great ales from Wales at the Great W-Ales Beer Festival in Cardiff.
The inaugural W-Ales Beer Festival is being held at Cardiff’s massive Millennium Stadium between June 5 and 7.
Generally, the current market is difficult, and I sometime wonder if the economic recovery actually is getting to us in the regions?
