Celebrating our Staff

Each company thinks that they have the worlds best staff, but here at Beerhouse we know that we really do have some of the worlds best staff.

Here is why:
We have some incredibly loyal staff. In the hospitality industry it can be a struggle to hold onto staff; many of the times it isn’t the right culture fit, they have moved industries or can’t keep up with the hours that the hospitality industry demands.
These staff members have not only been employed for more than a year (which is an accomplishment in it’s own) but some have been with us for half a decade! WOW!

Some of these staff members have developed their careers at Beerhouse, from waiters to managers or cleaners to bartenders. They are all perfect pictures of the culture that we have developed at Beerhouse.
Not only a love for beer and food but a desire to develop themselves and advance their careers.

Happy work anniversary to the following staff and we look forward to the next year of hard work and many beers!

Pepe Myve

Getting to know Pepe:

Pepe’s toothbrush colour is red, his beer of the moment is Beerhouse house beer LIT Lager. His favorite thing about working for Beerhouse is the challenge of working in the kitchen and he loves to cook. Pepe would love to become a cameraman and his favorite thing to do in Johannesburg is to visit his local library and loves to read.

If she could have a superpower she would have TECHNOPATHY, the ability to control electronics with her mind. Her toothbrush is dark pink and her beer of the moment is Liefmans Fruitesse, fruit beer is number 1!
Her favorite thing about working at Beerhouse is the culture, the people and the vibe we create. If she could learn anything it would be to fly a plane. Her favorite thing to do in Cape Town is go to the beach and go on road trips (so Capetonian). If she could meet anyone dead or alive it would be businesswoman and talk show host, Felicia Mabuza-Suttle.

Pay it forward! BEERHOUSE waitress gets R18,000 tip

Meet Ayanda, the waitress that made an R18 000 tip.


It was a night like any other at Beerhouse and a very special patron, who wishes their identity to remain anonymous, was simply enjoying a night out with friends.
Once the bill came our patron decided that this was the moment to Pay it Forward, the bill being R1 320 the patron decided to make it R20 000 as an once-off act of kindness and that she believes Ayanda will use the money for good. “I have no want to reverse this, no second thoughts about it and I was of sound mind when deciding to leave this tip.” says the patron in a private whatsapp message to Randolf Jorberg, the owner of Beerhouse.

Ayanda who was in disbelief of this incredible kindness called the duty manager immediately to try and talk the patron out of it but the patron refused saying that Ayanda’s service was amazing and that she deserved every last bit of that money.

Ayanda has big dreams to use this money to go back to school. She had to start working at a young age due to financials constraints when she was growing up. She was only eight months old when her parents got divorced which left her family in a tough financial situation. She wasn’t able to get to school because her mom was always working and didn’t complete her Matric.
Ayanda plans to attend a school in Alexandria where she can attend night classes so that she may complete her Matric. She has also expressed an interested in becoming a paramedic. In the meantime she has already started the process of getting her drivers licence.
She has been a part of the Beerhouse team since 2015 and has been a critical part of our Front of House team ever since.

Now that she has gotten the kick start that she has been dreaming of and her future is looking a brighter shade of yellow!
