Bridge Street Brewery (Port Elizabeth)
Emerald Vale Brewing Company (Chintsa)
Kowie Gold Pilsner – A lightly cloudy yellow-gold with a puffy white head, it looks the consummate pilsner. With wet grass and light spiciness on the nose, and a palate to match, it’s a refreshing springtime beer. Finishes dry and slaking, managing an excellent balance between hoppiness, earthiness and tartness.
