Own your piece of Beerhouse Tygervalley

Click here for our campaign

Beerhouse has officially launched its first crowdfunding campaign seeking to raise R3 million for its new Tygervalley branch in Cape Town’s Northern Suburbs, which was previously home to the iconic Starlite Diner.

Boasting an impressive and inclusive beer variety, delicious handcrafted brew food and a vibey social atmosphere, Beerhouse has quickly become a household name in South Africa as the navigators and curators of the world’s oldest beverage. At Beerhouse it is our duty to deliver variety, which we do through our famous 99 bottles of beer on the wall, which includes 25+ beers on tap, ciders, wine and spirits.  Many microbreweries in South Africa do not own their own dispense equipment which makes the market saturated with large breweries that do have the infrastructure to flood the market with their products. We, at Beerhouse, own all our equipment ensuring we give the ‘little guy’ a podium to shine on. This gives Beerhouse a competitive edge over any potential competitors.

Beerhouse represents all that is loved from traditional German beer drinking halls in a contemporary South African space. 

We’ve partnered with the pioneering equity crowdfunding platform Uprise.Africa, that will run the campaign and represent all shareholders interest.
By investing the minimum of R1 000 (1 share) you will not only own a piece of Beerhouse Tygervalley but you will be invited to the shareholders group where you will have insight into the business as well as being a part of the business decisions, AGM’s and also benefit from the returns on your investment.

Beerhouse Tygervalley progress update

We have some exciting updates on our new store Beerhouse Tygervalley in Cape Town’s Northern Suburbs.

If you have been following us two months ago we launched our first public crowdfunding campaign, where you can own shares into Beerhouse Tygervalley. Not only will you own a piece of this business but you will benefit from the profits as well.
Since then we have had some challenges as a business with the relocation of Beerhouse Fourways based in Sandton Johannesburg pulling our focus from this campaign.
As a team we are working hard to reopen a store in the Gauteng area as soon as December 2019!

We now have 30 days left of our crowdfunding campaign with 116 investors and with a little more than half way to go to reach our target of R3 million.

So what has been happening with Beerhouse Tygervalley?
Construction started mid August and our new home is starting to come together.
Here are some photos of construction thus far:

Majority of the building has been completed, now we need to fit our kitchen and bar equipment. The shop fitters are busy reworking furniture and all the beautiful features you can find in each of our Beerhouses and the electricians will work their magic.
We will be updating more photos on our Facebook page as the renovations continues.

Important Dates:

Site progress viewing – Tuesday, 24th September @ 3pm – 6pm
Opening Party with Jimmy Nevis – Saturday, 26th October
Halloween Silent Disco party – Thursday, 31st October


BEERHOUSE Fourways to close and relocate!

It is with a heavy heart, that we need to announce the sudden closure of Beerhouse Fourways at our current location in Pineslopes.  After 5 years and building a loyal following we are urgently searching for better premises to be able to continue serving the beer-loving community in Johannesburg. We invite everyone to join us for one last drink before we close the doors at our old Pineslopes home on the night of Saturday, August 31st to move to a new location.

THIS PARAGRAPH IS REMOVED FOR NOW AS THE LANDLORD’s LAWYER IS THREATENING AN URGENT COURT INTERDICT. Will return after legal review.

We had to give up our hopes of staying at Pineslopes and are now focused on finding a new location for Beerhouse. What is most heartbreaking however is as a consequence of this unscheduled move I am now, forced to let go of 44 highly trained employees, that are now looking for new employment!

This forced interruption to a local success story, that managed to turnover stable income (average R1.5m a month) in a down economy is unfortunate, but I am now looking for potential sites and operational equity partners to reopen bigger and stronger than ever! If you believe you have what we need, contact me at randolf@beerhouse.co.za. This is also a good chance to launch a new crowdfunding campaign for Beerhouse Fourways 2.0 once we found a suitable site. The existing pioneering equity crowdfunding campaign for Beerhouse Tygervalley continues, as this is a separate legal entity and we have offered Fourways employees to relocate to Cape Town’s Northern Suburbs.

In the meantime, please contact the team at fourways@beerhouse.co.za if you got vacant positions for loyal and hard-working hospitality professionals or with supplier-related questions. All invoices will be paid as per usual.

I want to thank the loyal Beerhouse following for consuming 375,694 litres of beers from 7829 kegs and 426,735 bottles over the last 5 years in Fourways and promise to come back in yellow as soon as we can!

Stay thirsty, stay curious!

All other medals were rated by certified beer judges and sommeliers with a final best of show tasting where beers where judged for subjective ‘drinkability’
