It’s a challenge being one of Wales’ oldest microbreweries. We strive to remain relevant whilst celebrating our roots. VOG meets VALE.

Established in 2005 the drinks industry and craft beer scene has since been on one hell of a journey. It’s constantly changing, evolving and there’s more challenges and obstacles you can shake a cat at. We are fiercely independent. We are a beer family. Our mission is to keep brewing great beer, to keep grafting away, to keep loving what we do. To thrive not survive.

We made the decision in 2022 to continue evolving the VOG brand and to keep having fun with it. So we plan to be more loud and proud about VOG and our keg and cask beers.
We were also conscious that the roots of our brewery lay back to the 1860s and that we needed to recognise that and celebrate it. So we re-created the Vale of Glamorgan heritage brand.

Our Home

We’re proud to call Barry our home. Barrybados sits on the beautiful Vale of Glamorgan coast. We’re a stones throw from the infamous Docklands that was once the largest coal port in the world. A short bus ride to Barry Island.

VOG is everything Barry is….

We loves to chat, we works hard, we think things are “tidy” and “lush”.
We don’t take ourselves seriously. We’re proud of who we are and where we’re from.
We embrace life and culture. We just likes to have fun and drink a nice pint.

Our roots

The Vale of Glamorgan Brewery has roots that date back to 1865 on Cowbridge High Street. A local farmer’s son, whilst working as a malster, took the plunge and created a brewery. Although it’s been closed over 100 years we felt it was right to bring back a heritage brand - to recognise and celebrate the beers that today’s modern beers are still based on. From Dark Mild to Best, from ESB to IPA. It’s all about English hopped great tasting cask ales.
We salute you Mr Jenkins!


We use the finest ingredients - the best of British hops alongside global favourites. Our brewers graft hard. Our brewers ROCK, like the candy you buy down Pleasure Park. Brew Days are our Best Days.

Quality Control

We care about our beers. We’re not some corporate machine, we’re a small brewery, putting in the long hours, mastering our craft. Looking after the details. Making sure our beer is great. We loves what we do.

The Pint

This is why we do what we do. For that first sip. From a dry NZ Maori to a fruity American pale. Beer brings people together. We are just one big beer family, with lots of beer cwtches to give. Iechyd da.
