As my Young Man was here all last week (which is why I haven't been updating the blog) I wanted to take him to some interesting places locally. He's a great fan of Buster Grant's beers from Brecon Brewing, so of course he wanted to go to the new pub, the Brecon Tap.
Looking at the times of the buses, we thought we might have lunch and then mooch around Brecon - maybe visit the Regimental Museum.
In the end, we never left the pub!
Lunch was excellent - the pies really are delicious, and so are the side dishes. The Lytham Stout I tried last time had already been replaced by Lytham Blond, a light, hoppy beer which was also very nice.
And after a leisurely meal, we had a look at the off licence shelves at the front of the bar. They stock a wide range of Discworld ales, produced under licence in association with Terry Pratchett's Discworld books. We chose Black Hogswatch, Ridcully's Revenge and Founder's Ale. They can be found online at www.discworldales.co.uk
There were also several ciders, including Gwynt y Ddraig, which the Young Man had promised to take back to London as a present for a friend.
And we made friends with a very large, very laid-back, dog and his people - dogs are welcome in the bar.
