Berg River Brewery

Berg River Brewery is the brainchild and hard work of the “Three Musketeers” as they call themselves namely Glen, Shaun and Jörg.

Their wish to have a brewery finally took hold in 2012. The passion and energy the three share for Berg River Brewery is evident in their beers.

The Taproom is the perfect front for their brewery. Built from the ground up by Glen, Shaun and the team, it is their home away from home and pride and joy. The purpose of The Taproom is not solely to sell beer, they see it as a place to share their enthusiasm about why they choose to do what they.

Join them on National Beer Day weekend on Sunday, 3 February 2019, with the first Juiced Sunday of the year themed Orange Sunday from 12:00 – 20:00.

In true #JuicedSundays style join them for next level house music, craft beer and delicious food from the BRB food truck. Doors open at 12:00, music starts 12:30.

Soul Barrel Brewing Co.

At Soul Barrel, they believe beer is the greatest beverage in the world and that savouring a world class brew can be a life changing experience.

Their brewery exists to contribute to those epic moments by brewing artisanal, innovative beer and helping make South African beer culture equal to any in the world.

Established when founder Nick Smith migrated from the Soul City of New Orleans to the Mother City of Cape Town, Soul Barrel was founded on the belief that real beer is made with soul. Their brewing embodies their passion for hoppy ales, old world fermentations that harness the art of aging beer in wood and local ingredients that express flavours of the Cape.

Celebrate #SANBeerDay with a guided tasting of some of their sour and funky barrels!

They’ll be tasting through four barrels. The beers will be a mix of Brett beers, a Flanders style sour and a spontaneously fermented beer which will be a fun way to explore the exotic flavours of wild barrel aged beers.

This event is actually a follow up from last year as a way to show the slow aging process these beers undergo. They have shown interesting development, especially in these recent warm months.

We’ll need to limit this to 20 people so please email nick@soulbarrel.co.za or

WhatsApp +27 (0) 836008716 if you would like to reserve a spot. R30 per person.
