I love what is happening in the USA. There are so many craft breweries, or microbreweries as we like to refer to them, and best of all, so many loyal customers. It’s definitely something to strive for in South Africa, getting more and more people educated and aware of the beautiful beers that are brewed with love and care and not mass produced.
So although we aren’t in the same place yet; although we don’t have as many microbreweries across our diverse landscape as they do in other parts of the world, I do think we need to celebrate what we do have and raise a glass to all the brewmasters around the country who give us such beautiful brews! Brewmasters with vision, who don’t conform, who continue to brew something better.
Spread the word. Don’t let others decide for you. Support your local microbrewery!
