After a meteoric rise at the back end of 2015 where they sold out of nearly all their beer because of capacity and production, due to huge popularity, we welcome back Tiny Rebel to the line up for May. It would be a shame not to feature the Champion Beer of Britain too…….
It all began in a garage back in 2008 where me Brad and Gaz home-brewed on weekends. They got pretty good at it and as they are beer geeks at heart they always took things that one step further. In 2010 the idea for Tiny Rebel was born, with the result being an official launch in February 2012.
Only a year after opening, they took the Great Welsh Beer Festival by storm and won Gold (Dirty Stop Out), Silver (FUBAR) and Bronze (Urban IPA) in the Champion Beer of Wales competition.
…And only four months after that, they opened Cardiff’s first-ever, fully-devoted craft beer bar called Urban Tap House. We visited there during the Rugby World Cup, it’s a beer drinkers haven, go check it out.
They won Champion Beer of Wales 2014 with FUBAR taking the crown.
2015 saw them open up a second, albeit temporary, bar Urban Pop Up in the heart of Newport before Cwtch, their much-loved Welsh red ale, was declared Champion Beer of Britain at the Great British Beer Festival in August 2015, an achievement to be extremely proud of!
