About Brew for Africa
Brew for Africa was founded in 2014 out of a desire to create a range of locally produced home brewing products. After reselling imported home brewing products for several years, it became clear that importing these goods had a lot of drawbacks. For example, the freshness of imported products (which tend to spend weeks or even months at sea) left room for improvement; the quality of ingredients tended to vary between suppliers, and the high cost of imports led to cuts in quality. Then there's the fact that not all products are ideally suited to the South African palate.
So one fateful evening, after a few home brewed beers (as such things go) it was decided that "surely we must be able to do better here in South Africa!" Thus Brew for Africa was founded. Local manufacturers were approached, fresh ingredients were sourced from South African suppliers, recipes were formulated, brewed and tested, and after a lot of research and experimentation a range of new products was developed. Our product philosophy has always been focused on offering a better quality product rather than just a cheaper (or more profitable) one, and today we are proud of the products we manufacture and supply.
Humble beginnings always come with a lot of hard work, and school fees (in the form of expensively and painfully gained experience) had to be paid. But since those early days Brew for Africa has matured considerably, and today offers a range of tried-and-tested products that often exceed the quality of imported competing brands at similar or lower prices. New products are being developed continuously, while existing products are being improved whenever possible. Good times for South African homebrewers are here!
