You can find us on Long Street in Cape Town and Fourways in Johannesburg. Relax and enjoy our contemporary beer hall with its 25 taps, and our legendary ’99 Bottles’ of the best local and international beer.
Our emphasis is the curation of craft beer brands, and a service standard that sets the trend in the hospitality industry. Our beer is served by the most knowledgeable and passionate staff in the industry, and our food is crafted by an internationally experienced kitchen team specifically to compliment our large beer variety.
We see ourselves as a hub for all things beer, and we strive to incubate the ideals of craft while supporting local micro-breweries and giving them a podium from which to shout their qualities to the world.
Welcome to the Beer Revolution.
STAY THIRSTY. STAY CURIOUS.
If you’ve grown up in sunny South Africa, you know all about lagers – the crisp, refreshing style of beer is just what we love drinking. But with the Beer Revolution gathering steam, we’re trying other styles of beer too, although we’re always going to back to old faithful at some stage, aren’t we? Herewith the information you need to understand the drink you love so much, South Africa.
The Beer Whisperer is back with the next in his educational Slideshare presentations (and don’t they just look spiffy as well?!). If you, like me, prefer a sweeter, more fruity lightness to your beer, then the spectacular range of wheat beers available at Beerhouse might just be for you. Check out the ins and outs of this refreshing style right here…

Monday night saw the Mash Tun at Beerhouse host the lovely sisters Melanie and Tania of CederBrew for a beer and food pairing worthy of the gods (particularly the god of fish). They introduced their Catfish Ale, Sandfish Weiss, Chubby Head Stout, Cherry Blonde and Jan Pampoen Spicy Pumpkin Ale to a roomful of appreciative and enthusiastic beerlovers, who also found the mostly pescetarian food pairing by executive chef Roy MacAskill exactly as it was intended: mouth-wateringly delicious. As fantastic as the fare was however, there was a larger issue being addressed by the happy gathering.
Consider for a minute the drive and belief it takes for two ladies from the Cederberg to take on the might of the rough and ready, male-dominated and oftentimes misogynistic brewing industry (and to do it with a classy poise so often lacking in beer-filled interactions).
As atypical as it is today however – and as the Beer Whisperer pointed out in the night – it was primarily women who were responsible for alcohol production prior to men discovering metallurgy, building machines and inadvertently kicking off the industrial revolution. From then on, alcohol and every other product became a commodity, and the feminine influence in beer and society was further marginalised as men killed each other on a larger scale than ever before. You’ll forgive the grandiosity, but I’d like to think that from that perspective at least, the advent of CederBrew beer represents a step in the right direction.
Beerhouse takes its collective hat off to you, Melanie and Tania, and if the reception you received on Monday night is anything to go by, we’re confident that we’ll be serving CederBrew beer for many years to come.
