Ponty's newest pub

Brew Wales have finally got around to visiting the Patriot in Pontypridd, the latest pub in the Rhymney Brewery stable. Its a bit of a shock as the pub serves 5 real ales, including cask conditioned mild, Rhymney Dark and cask conditioned lager. Alltogether the Patriot has 5 real ales on and what is surprising is that it is quite a small pub but was full on a Monday afternoon. This side of Ponty is short of a decent pub or two, the chavs and the customers of the probation office have their Wethersoons elsewhere and there is the wonderful Bunch of Grapes and the place where time has stood still, the Llanover, over the other side of the river. A good addition to the local beer scene and handy for the bus and train stations.
