Craft Beer Directory

noun: craft beer \kraft beer\

a beer with a distinctive flavour, produced in small quantities and distributed in a particular region.

The Western Cape is enjoying extra attention on its craft brewing industry, courtesy of the hipster-driven, anti-mainstream trend towards real ales. Bars, breweries and festivals spring up at a rate that seems constant and lively, and LandnSand is keeping an enthusiastic eye on all local activity.
