Basset Breweries is in Pennington (KwaZulu-Natal) and is all about producing the best quality craft beers. And it doesn’t hurt that they are in such gorgeous surrounds. The tasting room was recently revamped and tours of the brewery are incredibly interesting, as you get to learn about the process from raw malted barley to the ice-cold amber awaiting the first sip.

Basset Breweries produces four regular beers, which are available all year round. They are easy to drink and are ideal for all kinds of beer-folk. These are the:

Umdoni Gold (ABV 3.5%)
This golden ale is made using traditional Belgian methods, and is smooth and malty. It has tropical fruit undertones with hints of black pepper, and a clean finish.

Befreckled Red (ABV 3.5%)
This smooth amber ale is easy to drink and has a moreish aftertaste of caramel and biscuits. It is low on bitterness and hops, and has a light finish.

Pennington Pride (ABV 4.5%)
A dark English porter with a little smoked malt, this beer balances sweet and dark kilned malts to perfection. There are unmistakable hints of chocolate and coffee.

Barking Blonde (ABV 5%)
This easy-drinking blonde ale is excellent for hot days and balmy evenings. It is a single-malt, single-hop ale with clove and banana hints.

In addition to these, Basset Breweries also produces single batches of seasonal beers. So, the Reservoir Dog (a sweet, dark, malty beer) is produced for autumn, the Dogfather (loaded with fruit and spices) is for winter, and the Boondog Saints (a pale ale with zesty passion fruit) is perfect for spring. You’ll have to wait and see what summer has in store.

This KwaZulu Natal brewery complements its passion for excellent beers with its commitment to beer-brewing excellence.
