Lockdown Homebrewing Explosion – 26/05/2020
Just a few days into Covid-19 lockdown ‘prohibition’ and the signs were clear that people were starting to run out of their favourite beverages. Online forums and groups dedicated to brewing and distilling grew exponentially within weeks. Some questions, ideas, contraptions and experiments were downright scary from new brewers, clearly looking for the quickest route to an alcohol fix, but many others however, discovered a new hobby and passion. Its a bittersweet scenario, where many craft breweries will have closed their doors due to the lockdown, but coupled by an explosion of interest in more boutique beers. Given that craft breweries often evolve from the dreams of home-brewers, this may set the stage for a future resurrection of craft beer industry in South Africa.
Custom Commercial Craft Soda Carriers – 24/08/2019
We have had interest shown in our bottle carriers by a Craft Soda beverage company in South Carolina, USA. We are just about done developing some more customised carriers to suite their vibe and brand image, as well as their US bottle sizes, and haulage. It’s been a fun little project and has resulted in carriers much better suited for commercial macro scale craft brewery applications as well.
