If you’re a big fan of beer and especially craft beer make your way down to the Firkin Hophouse Mircro Brewery and Pub at the Pavillion Shopping Centre in Durban. You can take a tour that is approximately 15 minutes that explains the onsite brewing process and you will even be able to taste all four of the beers that are brewed on the premises.
The beers are brewed on site and their alcohol content is between 3 and 5 percent. The malt used in the beer is sourced both locally and from England, while the hops is 100% South African and comes from George. Every month this micro brewery produces up to 16 000 litres and as the names hint each has its own unique, distinct and quirky character.
You may already be a fan of Guinness and if you are your favourite brew may be that of St Patrick’s Porter which is a dark beer similar to the Irish brew but it isn’t as heavy. The other brews include Bishop’s Bitter, Pale Ale and Oscar’s Hophouse Larger which has a mild taste and is a good option for those who’re not big beer drinkers.
