Over the past year, a craft beer revolution has been taking place in Cape Town, with microbreweries popping up like mushrooms all over the city, and many restaurants and pubs selling craft local beers to a thirsty and salivating audience.
Craft beer is that delicious golden liquid made by hand, with no added chemicals, possibly containing other flavourings besides the basic barley, hops and water.
Currently, craft beer is being produced at an industrial scale in South Africa with 15000 litres being produced per day, equivalent to approximately 3000 bottles produced every hour and the same amount of people drinking them by the hour of course.
These breweries mainly include Cape Brewing Company, Darling Breweries and Jack Black Brewing Co, all of which are situated in the Cape.
Some of the best places to enjoy a pint of craft beer in Cape Town are Devil’s Peak Brewery and Mitchell’s in Woodstock, Beerhouse and &Union in the city centre, Hudsons and Weinhaus + Biergarten in Greenpoint amongst many others.
