Craft beer is flourishing to various degrees in more and more countries outside those with well-known and established industries.

Although’s main focus is South Africa’s thriving craft beer industry, it seems a pity not to include craft beer goodness in other countries. CraftBru is also current based in South East Asia, hence at least a bit of hands-on knowledge in these countries we list.

Take your pick of the craft beer loving countries below and get to know what craft beer is doing in that corner of the world.

  • South Africa

    Craft brewing has exploded in South Africa and more breweries are opening nearly every month.

  • Philippines

    Relatively new in the Philippines, craft beer has quietly crept onto the scene and palates of the beer drinking public.

  • Singapore

    Singapore has an active home-brewing community, and craft breweries since at least 1997 when Brewerkz opened.

  • Vietnam

    Vietnam is no stranger to homemade beer and with the influx of small breweries the scene is getting interesting.

  • Swaziland

    The Kingdom of Swaziland enters the craft brewing fray with their first brewery.

  • Hong Kong

    Hong Kong has a surprisingly long history of craft beer which is getting more attention with a growing festival scene to boot.
