Wales is like England an ale country. But its beer industry had hard times especially during the 19th century when it had to face strong religious anti-alcoholic waves.
Despite a little trip in Cardiff in 1989 I had to wait until 2001 to sample my first beer from Wales: I have found those beers at the Beer Festival 2001 and 2002 in Lausanne.
