The best real ale pub in Newport, the Pen & Wig on Stow Hill, now features a handpump permanently devoted to real ale from the City's up and coming brewery, Tiny Rebel.
Although as the photo above shows a few more than one of their popular beers may appear on the bar from time to time! The Tiny Rebel beer will join regular beers such as Bass and Kite Gorslas as well as guest ales from around the UK on the bar at this City-Centre pub.
According to Richard Jackson, landlord of the Pen & Wig, “The beers from Tiny Rebel Brewery have proved popular with our customers when we've had them as guests and during our beer festival so having their beers permanently on the bar is a good way for us to support our local brewery”.
This is the first permanent outlet for Tiny Rebel Brewery in their home City and expect to see Fubar, Urban IPA, Hank and their other beers featuring on the bar soon.
The Pen & Wig also serves a range of ciders and perries, served straight from the fridge, with Gwynt Y Ddraig Black Dragon and Two Trees Perry on alongside Palmers Upland Cider at the moment.
