Craft Breweries in Cape Town are flourishing unabated, and with more breweries and brands than any other city in the country, it can shamelessly claim the title as South Africa’s Craft Beer Capital.
Even zooming in on the City Bowl itself, near the heart of Cape Town’s central business district, there are plenty of breweries just a short drive away. Below we’ve filtered our list of breweries to only show breweries 7km or closer to town. For many more further out of Cape Town, see the Western Cape page.
These breweries are within 12km, as the crow flies, from the centre of Cape Town. There are more brewing facilities and beer brands in town, but this list is for the beer tourist who wants to visit the brewery to taste the beer and see where it’s brewed on the premises.
