Quality German Beer in Africa

All our beers are strictly brewed according to the Bavarian “Reinheitsgebot” of 1516. It is the oldest cuisine and beverage law in the world. This law states that only water, barley malt and hops may be used to produce beer. Yeast had yet to be discovered.

Tours & TastingsAccomplishments

Reinheitsgebot – why anything else?

Our beers are made from the finest ingredients, important straight from Germany. The combination of the brewing skills of our brewer, the high-tech brewing equipment and best ingredients produces a consistent high quality beer. Our traditional lager beers are available on tap after they have undergone a slow 4 week fermenting and maturing process. No filtering or pasteurising takes place in order to retain all of the beer’s flavour.
 
To keep discerning palates entertained out brewer experiments with new flavours and beer styles throughout the years. These beers are only available for limited periods of time.

Farmers Draught

A blond-coloured lager in the style of the beer enjoyed in the famous beer halls of Bavaria, in other words a  “Münchner Helles”.

Brauhaus Dunkel

This dark, full-flavored beer with its cream-coloured head invites you to take your first ‘bite’. You will be surprised by the coffee, caramel and roast malt flavors which meet in perfect harmony. The pleasant bitterness will keep you company for a moment.  This dark beauty gets you up to speed with its slightly increased alcohol content.  Bon voyage!

Brauhaus Weizen

50 % of the grist consists of the finest imported wheat malt.  This beer will stay a bit cloudy because of the top fermenting yeast used and the higher protein content of the wheat malt. Fruity banana and spicy clove like flavours meet in harmony to give this “Weissbier” its unique taste.

  • ± 4, 5% Alcohol
  • clove like flavours and banana aroma

Märzen

An deep amber, coppery coloured Lager in the style of German Oktoberfest and Märzen beer. This is a typical festival beer – with Münchner and Pilsner malt as base malt as well as Caramel malt for flavouring. Distinctive, complex maltiness includes a bready, toasty aspect and suggests a hint of sweetness but the finish is moderately-dry. Medium body, with a smooth, creamy texture creates a fuller mouthfeel. Prost!!
