03 Feb Drummer Boy ale in memory of Stereophonics’ drummer Stuart Cable
As with everything Grey Trees, our head brewer Ray Davies puts passion, care and effort into the production of our ales.
Ray created our Drummer Boy ale in memory of the late Stuart Cable – ex drummer in one of Wales’ well-loved bands, Stereophonics, with the same love.
As you may know, Stereophonics, hail from our local community here in the Cynon valley – from Cwmaman, Aberdare, specifically. And what better to way to celebrate these local lads made good that with a top quality beer brewed right here in the locality, by another local boy, Ray Davies.
Ray used to serve the sadly missed Stuart Cable, back when he drank in a pub Ray managed, in Llwydcoed (‘Llwydcoed’ meaning “Grey Trees”). This friendly link, a mutual appreciation of fine ales, and of course the sense of a community that contains beer brewers, rock stars and all manner of people in between, inspired Ray to create the much in-demand Drummer Boy.
