It’s been ten years at Tiny Rebel brewery and what ten years it has been, they have been in the news and living up to their name, winning awards and putting Wales on the map for craft beer. They show no signs of slowing down anytime soon…
Tiny Rebel was founded in Newport in 2012 by brothers-in-law Bradley Cummings and Gareth Williams. Williams had learned to homebrew with his grandfather and after several home brews and teaching his brother-in-law the age-old wisdom, they decided to take it from the garage to the world. By 2014 releasing their own official beer: Bo'Ho Within their early life they took the beer world by storm, boasting as an award-winning brewery, the youngest and only Welsh brewery to win Champion beer of Britain.
Their brick-and-mortar bar Urban Tap House was awarded a trophy from Shortlist Magazine for being the Best New Bar in Britain. A few years later, giving back to their community, they brought Cardiff its first independent beer festival, inviting brewery friends from all the UK to come and show Wales what they do. And then later that year, they opened their second permanent bar on the site of Urban Pop-Up.
Then after a couple of new homes, several more expansions and awards won they re-designed all their cans, hit supermarkets, and grown to a team of 137 rebels! 2019 alone they brewed over 4 million pint of beer and put out 102 new beers. Now with their sights set on the new year’s, they have already looked to evolve even further as a company and turn their attention to spirits and cider too. They have worked on 14 new beers this year, packaged range dropped across Sainsburys, Waitrose and M&S, 10% of their annual profits towards employee welfare, community projects, community charities and our environment, and pledged to work to be more sustainable and greener conscious.
Ten years of exciting and amazing work, we look very forward to working with tiny Rebel and seeing what the next ten bring.
