Not Quite Llandeilo

With a Hat Tip to retiredmartin and post Storm Miguel, it was off to Barry on the train. Which strangely is the same price as catching the train to Cardiff despite being further. Talking of Cardiff, here’s the view from Cardiff Central Platform 8. The “Tangy” Brewery.

The Old Brains Brewery, soon to be closed. The new brewery in Tremorfa is already open. Changing trains for the Barry Flyer.

Turn left for Barry Island and the seaside. Turn right for The Sir Samual Romilly. Barry’s Spoons. Currently building a larger Beer Garden.

It’s an old Cinema and it’s rather pleasant inside. Opens at 08:00 and the Bar opens at 09:00.

However the cask selection is rather poor. It looks like The Old Hooky is the pick of the crop.

Note the time, I did.

On to The Butterfly Collector, Google Maps was pretty close on the walking time.

Eclectic. A half of Black Flag Rum Porter from Tenby Brewing is a pretty good start. Free WiFi also helps.

Apparently you should write on the wall. Sharpie’s are now a thing in the UK. Please do not mention Magic Markers.

Lunch. I must say that the Butterfly Collector was rather quiet, which was a same as it’s a great, friendly little place. Use it or lose it Barry. Loved the umbrella.

    Nice piece, and congrats on being a 9am drinker. 👍

    I wouldn’t have predicted Barry would br first round there to get a micro!

    Looks like a Beer Guide cert, doesn’t it?
