Llandeilo award winning Brewer, Evan Evans, has today kicked off its support for Wales’ World Cup Rugby campaign with the launch of a brand new ale Go Reds.

The dark amber premium beer has been especially brewed for the 2019 Rugby World Cup in Japan.

Go Reds is the first Welsh beer to be launched in Wales for the start of the 2019 tournament. The new beer has been created by Evan-Evans’ Head Brewer, James Buckley, the seventh generation of the famous Buckley brewing family.

James Buckley said: “This is a new beer and one that rugby fans will enjoy throughout the tournament.

"I have looked to create a beer that is rich in malt, with a subtle bitterness and fruity hop palette.

"A real session beer, to be enjoyed with great rugby.”

The beer will be available throughout Wales and will be on sale in real ale pubs from today (10 September).

The Rugby World Cup starts on Friday, 20 September and Wales’ first game is against Georgia on Monday, 23 September.

Evan-Evans Brewery is Wales’ leading cask ale brewery and is the largest exporter of specialist beer in Wales. The Buckley family have been brewing beer in Wales since 1767. Evan Evans is famous for brewing a selection of International award-winning ales, both traditional and contemporary styled modern beers as well as organic, gluten-free and vegan-friendly choices.
