Craft Breweries tend to be family owned, quite often relatively small, allowing clients to become patrons and the opportunity to get educated in the nuances of beer styles and form a greater appreciation for the art.

Tap Rooms are set across a range of locations from light industrial estates with awesomely themed interiors, to wine estates with spectacular views and open space; drinking beer is now a family friendly activity, albeit to be enjoyed responsibly and one should never drink and drive.

Beer is not a strictly ingredient-regulated industry, thus there are some very interesting authentically South African specialty beers hitting the tap rooms, incorporating fynbos and wild yeast for uniquely balanced flavours.

Tours can be arranged through our Stellenbosch office for collection throughout Cape Town. On the website you can search by beer style for the real beer geeks and specialty or seasonal beers, to help you find a brewery that has your sort of flavours to offer.
