Fleetwing is a 4.3% amber coloured best bitter with a refreshing bitter finish and citrus aroma. This is the first of our new series celebrating the ships of Porthmadog.
The Fleetwing was a brig built in Borth-y-Gest in 1874. Working from Porthmadog she sailed to many ports around the world with various cargoes. In 1911 Fleetwing was sold to a company in the Falkland Islands where she spent the rest of her life. Laterly used for storage her remains were only recently destroyed.
