A report by Geraint Thomas, Evening Post Reporter 16 Sept 13, tells us about a new mini brewery that has been set-up by Richard and Jo Bennett at the PILOT INN on the Mumbles seafront, which they took over after it had closed last Christmas. Check out the full story in the Evening Post. All we can do is to wish them well with their new business adventure.
