We’re taking a pretty slow approach to the Friday Beers for the start of 2019. Everyone is by now back at work and trying to get into the swing of things – it’s hard, we know. Not even the breweries are putting anything new out this month. So we dug through the Barley&Hops Beer Fridge
A couple of months after moving in with Devil’s Peak brewer Lethu Tshabangu has released a new beer. The Ukhamba Section 25 Lager was dropped off at Barley&Hops HQ a couple of weeks back along with a much appreciated piece of brewery swag (thanks!). We’ve had it chilling since then just in time to kick off
Shoh! Our little Christmas giveaway went significantly better than we could have ever expected. With almost 300 entries it makes us feel like we need to do it more frequently. Until then we will crack on with the Friday Beer. This week we wanted something really sessionable that you can get stuck into post Christmas.

Having just been released the seasonal Pixie Dust Golden Weiss performed well over the past weekend at the Cape Town Festival of Beer.

It is the Cape Town Festival of Beer this weekend and so, while at the launch, we went on the hunt for something exclusive. We assume that if you are in Cape Town and you read this blog that you will ultimately be making your way to the Festival at some point this weekend. And
Another week gone which means it’s time for the Friday Beer. This week we have something special from two of our favourite brewers. Murray Middleton and Matthew Bradley have clubbed together to brew the Metal Lane x Saggy Stone Champagne Citra Nova Brut IPA. And the beer is as good as the label might suggest.
With temperatures across South Africa on the rise we thought it may be a good idea to feature a Lager this week. And it’s not just any Lager, it’s the gold winning Mitchell’s Knysna Forester’s Lager.
