Craft brewery in picturesque Pennington on the Kzn South Coast. Proud brewers of Umdoni Gold, Befreckled Red, Pennington Pride and Barking Blonde. Also look out for our highly acclaimed seasonal brews - a special beer to celebrate each of the four seasons.Brewery tours (booking essential) take you through the entire beer making process and include a tasting session of our beers (approx 1 hour). Our new tasting room opens September 2016.

Andy did not hesitate to flirt with my wife in any way with no shame. As a craft beer lover he definitely put a bad taste in our mouth.

A Quick stop-off to purchase the Basset Beers, unfortunately there was a power failure and we were unable to pay for the beers. However, for those that want to stop for a tasting, why not support these local people.
