1000 Hills Brewing Company
2 Wootton Avenue, Bothas Hill, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa
1000 Hills Brewing Company, previously known as Porcupine Quill Brewing Company, can be found in Bothas Hill, Kwazulu-Natal, about 40km west of Durban.
It’s part of the 1000 Hills Chef School, making it one of South Africa’s more unique brewery setups. Advanced students get to learn the art of craft beer brewing with background knowledge strongly grounded in food and flavour.
To that end 1000 Hills Brewing Company do not follow any styles too closely, choosing instead to start with a base of a pale malt and experimenting with flavours and appearances from there. Knowing a bit more of their setup, the names of their beers – The Cheerleader, The Graduate, The Foreign Exchange Student, The Quaterback and The Dean – make more sense.
