Welcome to the Craft Beer Revolution



Beer is the oldest alcoholic beverage in the world and have been enjoyed by ancient civilizations since the cultivation of grains around 10 000 BC. It is the most popular alcoholic beverage in the world and is 3rd most consumed beverage after water and tea.

There are hundreds of different styles and types, from all the corners of the world. Join us to try some lovely local Cape brews, handcrafted since the local craft beer revolution!

There are many different styles and kinds of beer, categorized under 2 types;  Ale & Lager. The main difference being fermentation temperatures and the malts and yeasts utilized. Craft beer is brewed in small batches, using more hands-on brewing techniques and small scale equipment. The 1st micro-brewer in SA to turn commercial was Mitchell’s brewery in Knysna in 1983. Since then dozens of micro brewers have been producing some very unique Brews.


Beer is the continental drink of Africa and are still being brewed by tribal woman. Cape Town has a very old beer history. Early brewing in the Cape was done in the Fort of Good Hope by Governor and founder of Cape Town, Jan van Riebeeck. Beer was a very important substance for the sailors employed by the VOC and also a nice commodity to offer passing ships and traders.
