Here at We Are Cardiff, we are all about local businesses and locally produced goods, so we sent photographer Samuel Padget went down to check out Crafty Devil Microbrewery in Canton to have a snoop around. Here’s his report …
On Thursday, I headed down to check out the Crafty Devil Brewery in Canton to see what they were all about. Having opened two years ago, it’s still a small operation with partners Adam and Rhys running the business and brewing side of things and Rhys’ dad Gareth taking care of the newly opened shop. With brewer Adam operating out of a unit in an industrial estate in Canton, they are still managing to fill Cardiff’s pubs with Crafty’s beers appearing on the guest circuit of craft ale behemoth Brewdog and a permanent tap in the local favourite the Lansdowne.
Even if you can’t find a tap anywhere, there’s always the newly opened Crafty Devil’s Cellar on Llandaff Road, Canton. The store is open Tuesday-Sunday, with a bar area at the rear that is open for occasional events (check Crafty Devil Website for bar opening times). Having opened on 30 October, the shop stocks a full range of Crafty’s beers along with carefully selected craft beers from around the world.
