Overnight? Stay at accommodation in Orania, in Northern Cape

The traditionally Afrikaans town of Orania in the Northern Cape is the quiet home of the Orania Grootrivier Craft Beer Brewery. This brewery offers a completely unique beer-tasting experience in the heart of the Karoo, and benefits from the years of experience of both the locals and the master brewer, Mr Robert Combrinck.

This brewery produces three outstanding beers, each with an undeniably full-bodied burst of flavour. These are aptly named typical Afrikaans names:

Named after Jan van Riebeeck, this pale ale is only slightly bitter. It is an excellent refresher for hot Northern Cape days.

With Piet Retief as its name’s sake, this ale is full of character and boasts an extra kick. It is handmade using beukenhout smoked grain, and is fabulous for chilly evenings.

Koos De La Rey was hailed as a hero, and this Irish red ale is just as gutsy. The sweet honey and milk flavours are underscored by the roast caramel undertones for the perfect finish.

There is little subtle or muted about these beers. Each celebrates the fantastically strong character of South Africa and its people. But, unlike times passed, these brews can now be enjoyed with friends of all colours and languages, testifying to the true Rainbow Nation that South Africa has become.

Enjoy a beer tasting at the Orania Grootrivier Craft Beer Brewery, which is located in the Stokkiesdraai Adventure Park. Learn more aboput the brewing process of eavch beer and the inspiration behind them.

Orania is just less than two hours’ drive from the diamond capital, Kimberley; while Bloemfontein is almost 2.5 hours away.
