Craft beer is growing in popularity in South Africa, as more people move beyond the big brands to explore different types and styles of beer.
Visiting several craft brewers recently I got two of them to part with their favourite recipes using their own beers.
This craft brewery was started by Fraser Crighton in Struisbaai. The brewery was purchase by Dirk Human, founder of The Black Oystercatcher Wines, (R43, Moddervlei Farm, Bredasdorp) but Fraser still continues to brew and represent the beer.
On the slopes of the mountains on the Hermanus Road near Botrivier, you’ll find Honingklip Breweries, home to Analize and Mark ter Morshuizen. Here they create Belgium-inspired beers and run a restaurant.
