About
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!

A must visit
Oct 2021
You cannot visit Haenertsburg without a trip to Zwakala Brewery. it is in such a beautiful setting hidden in the middle of the forrest. The beer is delicious and has won many awards. We had the burgers which are wonderful and hand made in the kitchen - highly recommended. We thought we would just pop in for a quick lunch and ended up staying all day and having a great time.

Too crowded
Aug 2021
Arriving on Saturday at 2pm was not the best time. All tables full, no free seats. We could not figure out if there is any food available (yes, we saw that beer and wine was).
Shop was then really quiet and staff there not at all helpful. We bought just an ice cream to push hunger a little later.
Brewery gave little, but still I know I had to see it.

Friendly staff and manager. We were camping there and had a problem on our caravan and they helped us out without any problem.
The waling trails and beer is great. Love the ambiance and atmosphere. Lovely location.

What a Gem

A great spot for chilled sunny weekend afternoons. Their inhouse drinks are amazing, coupled with great food they serve (the menu is not diverse). The place is pet and kids friendly.

Burgers, Beer and Beautiful Dogs
Sep 2020 • Couples
Zwakala Brewery is a MUST visit if you are in the area. The scenery on the way to the brewery is beautiful. The Mountain Weiss and Gin on tap was delicious. The burger was very falvourful and tasty with avo and a tzatziki type sauce. A cherry on top was all the friendly dogs. The only criticism would be that not all the seating is in the shade, so be early to get a good spot. Will definitely be back.

FOREST FUN

Went to watch the Boks vs the All Blacks RWC, place was packed with great bears and beautiful setting in the Pine Forests and view over the Wolkberg. Prefer the Limpopo Lager! Will visit again, thanks for a great event!
