Our water flows through the Broederstroom River high up in the Magoebaskloof Mountains. As a result our water is sweet & pure, a key ingredient for Zwakala Brewery's beer. We have three key brews detailed below. We also push the boundaries with our seasonal collaboration brews which include the popular Upside Down Baobab and Ginger Weiss & The Pantsula Hop (a light summer hoppy ale). Our Weekend Special (a lemongrass white IPA) was so good that we might even make it part of the gang.
This golden beer is crisp and refreshing with a smooth finish from longer ageing. So crisp that it won gold at the 2016 South African National Beer Trophy Awards. Drink enough of our flagship beer and the rhythmic, adventurous and wild side of Africa will consume you.
The Naked Ale is one sexy looking beer! It has a medium bitterness with light caramel and toffee flavours. It a sessionable beer and a favourite on the mountain. It won Silver at the 2017 South African National Beer Trophy Awards!
To us, she's golden!
The Weekend Special IS a hybrid between an IPA and a German Wit bier. It contains 7 different types of hops & 4 kilograms of freshly cut lemongrass. It was inspired by Brenda Fassi - an anti-apartheid activist.
The Mountain Weiss has a fruitier flavour with soft floral notes on the nose. It is a light bodied weiss and is particularly enjoyable on a hot summer South African day. No need to escape to the mountains to feel refreshed, our Weiss is all you need.
