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 (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

    I’ve always been a big fan of beer house.
    Been supporting the long street one everytime I’m there.
    My goal is try every type of beer on selection over quite a few trips.
    I would really appreciate an invite.
