In the magical mistiness of the Magoebaskloof Mountains, deep in the heart of the Northern Province, is the inviting micro-brewery known as Zwakala, which means “come closer”. And that is really what this brewery is about; inviting folk in to make a more intimate acquaintance with the delicious beers produced in this gloriously pretty part of South Africa.
This micro-brewery produces a fantastic variety of flavours, appealing to seasoned beer pros and those who love the odd cold sip alike. These include:
• Limpopo Lager (5%) – with a crisp taste and a smooth finish, this is an excellent choice for just about any beer drinker.
• Naked Blonde Ale (5%) – a crisp, dry beer with a hint of sweetness.
• Mountain Weiss (5%) – this has fruity flavours and a lasting refreshment.
These beers are produced using natural ingredients (particularly noteworthy is the fresh mountain water from the Letaba River) and the handcrafted expertise of those with a passion for this delicious art.
The Zwakala Brewery is situated next to Mina’s farm café in Haenertsburg, right in the midst of the mountains. This idyllic situation means unrivalled views that perfectly complement the tastes and aromas of the beers.
Beer tastings are on offer, making the most of the brewery venue, with its massive windows overlooking the mountains. Just minutes away, the river meanders through the countryside, inviting thirsty visitors to drink in the views as they sip on their beers.
The Zwakala River Retreat offers lovely overnight accommodation in Haenertsburg for visitors wanting to make the most out of their South African adventure. Nearby activities include mountain biking, hiking, fishing and leisurely strolls through the beautiful forests.
