Beerhouse is proud and excited to announce a partnership with Leo District 410A of the Lions Club International and Cape Brewing Company that will allow Beerlovers to know they are doing good while drinking their beer. It’s that easy: get down to Beerhouse, order your pint of CBC Pilsner or your bottle of CBC Lager, drink it, and then pat yourself on the back.
Proceeds from the sale of CBC beer go to Leo District 410A of the Lions Club International, who will use the money to buy food for various shelters and soup kitchens in the greater Long Street and Fourways areas.
CBC have always been trendsetters in the South African micro-brewing scene, and this initiative is no different. We’re hoping CBC have set the bar for social responsibility, and that other major players in the industry will follow suit. Anyone wanting to get involved can get in touch here. C’mon South African Beerlovers, let’s spread good cheer with our beer!
Last week was an incredibly emotional week for all concerned. In the midst of the adversity faced by the Joe’s family and friends and the Beerhouse staff, we find ourselves extremely grateful for all the support afforded us by the community, our suppliers and our loyal Beerhouse customers.
“In memory of Joe”, the Joe Kanyona Memorial Donation page, has raised R46,647 so far in support of Joe’s wife and four month-old daughter, receiving donations from as far afield as New York, London and Sydney. Thank you to all who have donated thus far – your generosity is much appreciated.
We’re also grateful to Lakeside, Apollo, CBC, The Belgian Beer Co., Windermere, Woodstock and Jack Black, who have sponsored a special ‘keg wall’ at Beerhouse on Long in Joe’s honour. The keg wall and other in-store fund-raising has seen a further R55,000 raised on behalf of Joe’s family. We encourage all who would help to come down to Beerhouse and pull a pint in honour of Joe.
We will continue to support the police investigation into Joe’s death.
Please accept heartfelt thanks on behalf of Joe’s family and the Beerhouse staff for your ongoing support through this tragedy. We are deeply grateful.
As part of our efforts to support Joe’s wife and four month-old daughter, we have erected a keg wall at Beerhouse on Long. Thanks to the generous sponsorship of Lakeside Beerworks, Woodstock Brewery, Jack Black, The Belgian Beer Co., Apollo Brewing, Cape Brewing Company (CBC) and Windermere, we are able to offer our patrons the chance to make a donation to the Kanyona family and pull a pint in honour of Joe.
Interested parties can also make a donation on our donation page, which has seen an overwhelming response from the public so far. Thank you to everyone who has shown their support; we are overwhelmed and extremely grateful for your kindness.
As our Meet the Brewers events get ever more popular, Beerhouse is proud to welcome the hip-hoppers from Riot Beer Factory to Long Street on the 20th July, and the family brewers from Just Brewing to Fourways on the 27th of July.
Riot have been inciting a… err… single-hop riot on the Beerhouse on Long guest tap for a while now – and people love their beer. The Session Ale in particular is a whole whack of easy-drinking fun, and if you haven’t drunk it, you’re missing out.
Just Brewing, as the name suggests, are less of an angry mob. Focusing on good environmental practice and community upliftment through their brewing practices, they’re making a difference in Boksburg. This blogger in particular is looking forward to their Just Chocolate Coffee Stout.
So if you’ve been around the Cape Town city centre on any of the First Thursdays in the past couple of months, you may have been lucky enough to catch afro-soul sensation Wandile Mbambeni wooing the crowds at Beerhouse.
If not, you missed out. Swak.
Wandile hails from Port Elizabeth, where he was enrolled in the EP Kings rugby academy. Only he spent more time sitting on the couch playing guitar than tackling people, and after hearing him practice a few times it was his teammates who prodded him into becoming a performer. It’s been a bit of a whirlwind for the man from the Eastern Cape, but he’s riding it like a pro.
Wandile’s soulful mix of traditional Xhosa favourites and original folk and blues-inspired riffs has become an instant hit at Beerhouse, and we’re hoping to have him back regularly in the future. In the meantime, check out the Wandile Mbambeni Facebook Page for updates on the man and his guitar, and if he’s playing near you, get out and support a true South African talent.
