After Mumbles we headed north into the Brecon Beacon area to a little town called Crikhollow Wales, where we stayed at the Bear Hotel. This little town was in the middle of nowhere, but managed to have 6 hand pumps and 6 regular taps in our little circa 1400 hotel. The Rhymney Bitter and the Reverend James were our favorites, but the others were quite tasty too. We also had a a few other local pubs that featured the local favorite “Brains Brewery”, Speckled Hen & Hobgoblin all on hand pump as well. There was something incredibly special about sitting along the stream in the gardens of the Bridge End Inn and enjoying a Hobgoblin.
