South Cape Breweries opened in late 2012 in Mossel Bay. The fact that the town didn’t yet have much of a craft beer culture, coupled with the beachy climate, led Johann Baker and his business partner Jan van der Walt to launch with a Lager. “Some would question the decision, asking why bother with a style that is already available in abundance, but it is a move that has worked again and again in the South African beer scene and one that make a lot of sense.” – Lucy Corne, Beer Safari (2015).
This is a classic scenario where a hobby developed into a business – for everybody’s benefit.
We no longer could keep the experience and pleasure to ourselves. We had to share it with the Mossel Bay community and its visitors.
We use the finest ingredients for our quality beers, including specially purified water.
