Now, before you click away, you should know we have some beer to give away. Read on to find out how to win a 4-pack of the small batch brew Afro Caribbean Brewing Company Hop Session Pale Ale.
Owned and operated by Greg Casey Afro Caribbean lives on the floor above Banana Jam cafe in Kenilworth. On any occasion you will find a handful of Cape Town brewers and beer geeks loitering around. Most notably it’s unlikely to not run into Shawn (Dissident Brewing Co) or Cameron (Atlantic Storm), both of whom we still need to Feature here. It’s an incredibly social place. Probably has something to do with the extensive range and quantity of beer available. One of our favourite aspects of Afro Caribbean Brewing Co, there is always a new brew to try.
It’s no secret that Greg is a bit of a mad hatter. He’s willing to give anything a crack and he’s made some really interesting beers as a result. The “Green Stuff” he brewed for the Festive420 probably the best example of this.
A recent highlight of Afro Caribbean is the canning machine that Greg has been hard at work with. What this means is that you can now buy the beers from the brewery to take home. And you should! He’s also happy to fill growlers which are excellent for a braai with the mates. Be warned, if you are the one to arrive with a growler, your beer will go first. Not so bad when it costs R100 to fill a 2l growler with any of the Afro Caribbean brews (we’re up for correction here).
Alongside the many one-offs Greg brews no small number of variants:
- Coconut IPA
- Hop Session
- Island Blonde
- Pirate Porter
For this week we strongly suggest getting over to Banana Jam and picking up the Afro Caribbean Hop Session. We’re pretty sure there are still cans floating around, but if not pick up a growler and get your fix. It’s good!
And, because Greg is very generous and hates to see people go without a beer he’s given us a 4-pack to give away. To enter, leave a comment letting us know why you can’t get to Banana Jam to pick the beer up yourself. The most convincing, and entertaining, will get themselves a 4-pack of Hop Session! Winner selected on Monday.
