This visit got me so excited that I can hardly contain myself, I want to spill all the hobs!
The Hoogeberg Brewing Co. is situated on the beautiful Signal Gun Wines farm in Durbanville. Here you get the best of both worlds, a brewery amongst the vineyards – I christened it my little piece of heaven.
Brett Mannix, General Manager for both Hoogeberg Brewing Co. and Signal Gun Wines shared the story and his passion that is Craft Beer. Thank you for awakening a new sense of appreciation within me, and enriching me with your knowledge. I thoroughly enjoyed the tour, seeing the entire process of craft beer making.
Visit their tasting venue, called Die Stal. Here you can enjoy both wine and Beer tastings. Delicious platters can be ordered. The Signal Gun Platter has all the trimmings and will leave you happily satisfied.
Their range of Beers available for tasting include:
- Bontebok Lagered Five Crops – This light, crisp fruity beer has a hint of sweetness. It’s brewed in their 5 Crops Lagered style for 21 days. Keep it cold and enjoy it every day!
- Ystervark Hybrid Lager – This is a full bodied beer with a stunning Golden color. Slightly malty aroma with a light hop flavor. Lovely smooth finish.
- Hefe Weiss – Traditionally German brewed style Hefe Weiss. This unfiltered Weiss is cloudy and oh so sexy – quite mysterious!
- Berry & Lime Climax – Ladies you will absolutely love this one! It ticks all the boxes. Best news is that it will soon be bottled – currently only available on tap. This beauty is bubbly, she’s intense, she’s refreshing! Delicate strawberry flavor on both nose and palate. Absolutely delish!
Brett and his team have huge exciting plans for this small Brewery and I can not wait to share it all with you. From a private tasting on a game drive to brewing your very own personal beer. Follow them on Facebook and Instagram to make sure you don’t miss out on what’s hot and happening at Hoogeberg.
