Come closer. That’s what the name Zwakala means and that’s the convivial African spirit behind Magoebaskloof’s first micro-brewery – Zwakala Brewery. Nestled in the Magoebaskloof Mountains, its location is as much its signature as its award winning beers and its Blueberry Gin and Tonic on Tap.
This charming brewery has enormous windows that overlook the mountains and you can go for a tasting, head out for a picnic or just head for the river with a Zwakala beer in hand. Even better, sleep over at Zwakala River Retreat (within walking distance) to refresh your soul after a few beers! The Brewery is also popular for its wide variety of outdoor games - life-size jenga, badminton & corn hole. These are fun for both adults and kids!
Each batch of beer is handcrafted, nothing unnatural is used in the brewing process – and the most important ingredient is the clear and pure mountain water drawn from the Letaba River. As the saying goes, “once you have tasted the water of the Letaba, you will never want to leave”. The brewery is open Saturdays and Sundays from 11am-5pm. Brewery tours are available from 11.30am. We are also open over long weekends & most of the public holidays. Group bookings are available during the week. So please come closer and enjoy a fabulous outing at Zwakala Brewery!
