The Super-premium (‘Craft’) beer market is in the early development stage but Standard Bank estimates it grew 30% in 2015, 35% this year and could make up as much as 18 million litres by 2017.

A bar is born!

It’s getting busy at Beerhouse. If you blink an eye you miss so much. The guys from Projectmen are stepping it up as we approach our opening in July. The Beerhouse bar is starting to take shape. It curls around the the heart of our operation, a large 7x3x3 cold room, which will lovingly house our beers. Direct access to cold keg beer affords us the opportunity to serve beer at perfect condition with minimal waste. Keep posted this is getting very interesting. Stay Thirsty, Stay Curious!
