Kelly, who is brewer Mark Goldsworthy's wife, tells us about the exciting new craft beer kid on the block. At this stage we're based in Gordon’s Bay. We have signed a lease in a little industrial park just outside Gordon’s Bay, where our neighbours are a combination of garagiste wine maker, artist and gourmet food importer!  The “brewmaster” is my husband Mark Goldsworthy who has a background in winemaking and viticulture, and the appropriate qualification from Elsenburg College.

Our intrepid writer and imbiber of ale, Jacques van Zyl, writes a regular (and very witty) column for the magazine. This is a guide to the breweries and home brew suppliers in the region, which boasts the southern hemisphere's first craft brewery (Birkenhead), the southernmost brewery in Africa (Napier and Struisbaai both lay claim to this one) and the one with the widest range of beers (Honingklip). Of course, no craft beer guide would be complete without mentioning the Western Cape's own South Yeasters Home Brewers Club. Based in Cape Town, it nonetheless has many enthusiastic members all over the…
