Hop on beer lovers, we’re heading to the Wineland Beerlands!

The Stellenbosch country-side is blossoming with breweries, and we’ll taste our way through it with a view of vineyards, and beautiful mountains forming the backdrop to our craft beer adventure. For our first stop of the day we pull into what might seem like one of those vineyards, but discover a veritable feast of craft beer instead.

As we head further into the rolling hills around Stellenbosch we encounter one of the Western Cape’s quirkiest breweries, and a proper craft beer taste adventure. Beer made with ocean water? A tastes of braai in a bottle? All is possible while still adhering to the German purity law, the Reinheitsgebot.

Then we head out to the furthest point on our tour for a taste of award-winning beers in a tranquil setting. With the mountains surrounding Stellenbosch in the distance, we’ll take a breather for slow-sipping and a break for lunch. Heading back in the direction of Stellenbosch we end our day with one of Stellenbosch’s longest established brewers and their stable of well-loved beers.

At the end of the day you’ll have tasted the beers from at least 4 breweries, gained insight into the art and science of the brewing process, and be filled with knowledge of local breweries with the taste of their beer lingering on your palate.

* The tour is scheduled to start from and return to the centre of Stellenbosch, but pick up from Franschhoek, Paarl or Cape Town can be arranged. Depending on the location, additional charges may apply.
