House Brew Gold Rush

The opening of Beerhouse Fourways is imminent and we have decided to celebrate our Cape Town heritage with our new City of Gold. Two of South Africa’s young and exciting brewers teamed up and collaborated on a unique recipe. Lakeside of Cape Town and SMACK!Republic from Maboneng Joburg joined forces to produce a beer to celebrate the opening of our House of 99 bottles and 25 taps in Jozi.photo (83) Lake Side Morne from Lakeside and Andrew & Grant from SMACK!Republic brewed us a Pale Ale using a Mash bill (Grain) of pale, Munich and Caramunich malt. They then added a special experimental South African hop so secret it still has not been given an official name. The J17 hop was introduced for bittering at the beginning of the boil and middle and late into it for aroma. Having the privilege to be at both brew days, it was great to see two very talented brewers at work and see how they used their very different kits and unique styles. Brewers are wonderful creatures as they have the ability to use both right and left sides of their brains with seeming ease. They have to work methodically like a scientist and combine creative flair of an artist.The result of their work is a soon to be limited release, Gold Rush African Pale Ale. A few lucky people have been able to taste this beauty of a beer and the results are a reflection of two breweries that are on top of their craft. Great Job chaps!m

Do You want a sample of both Lakeside & SMACK!Republic House Brew Gold Rush Beers? Media and Beerlovers do you want to join us for the launch of Beerhouse Fourways on Thursday the 24th July?

Please fill out this Online questionnaire for a chance to receive our Gold and an invite to our launch party.

Beerhouse Staff Brewday

On Monday the 9th of June we closed shop and had a  Staff brew day with our navigators. The Beer Whisperer, Ryno Reyneke ( Author of African Brew), Ant Cawood (man behind Beerguevara Brew shop) and Morne Uys ( Lakeside Brewery) gathered together to hold a home brew tutorial for the staff.

Our navigators were walked through the brewing process and the great balance between science and artistic expression that makes making so exciting. The staff were broken into three groups and each brewed off Beerguevara’s box kits that we sell in our merchandise shop.

Each team was paired with a Beerlovers tribal elder and walked through the process of brewing including, mashing, boiling, cooling, pitching and fermenting. Ryno, Morne and Ant gave great insight from there experience in brewing and the navigators really enjoyed the exercise. It opened up their  eyes to the art and science and allowed them to understand the manipulation of the four key ingredients, water, grain, hops and yeast in creating the huge variety in styles of beer. By brewing under the watchful eye of guys who have being doing for years afforded our navigators a great understanding of beer and how it is made, thus allowing them to help our beerlovers through their journey through beerland.

Next Monday the 23rd of June we will transfer the fermented beer to bottles for secondary fermentation. A further two weeks from then we will open up our American Amber Ales and see just how good our maiden home brew is. The Tribal Elders will return to judge and the winning team who will win a further home brewing course at Beerguevara.
