Zwakala Brewery

Zwakala means 'come closer'. It is this convivial african spirit that we brew our award winning brews with. Established in 2016, we are an independent & proudly South African craft brewery.  Luca Tooley, Zwakala's head brewer says that "Magoebaskloof is a very special place, and I was so lucky to grow up here. The area is an adventurer’s delight with trout fishing, hiking, river swimming & horse-riding. It also has a very welcoming local feel that I think visitors really enjoy and come back for. Our pure mountain water that we brew with is of such high quality & it really comes out in the flavour of the beer. Our beers are crisp and refreshing and our brewery’s location is unique - an adventure to get there.

I come from a big vivacious family & we live by the motto “the more the merrier” Craft beer reconnects the consumer to beer that is slow-brewed, locally-owned and full of flavour. My love of beer and Limpopo inspires me!"

In 2019 Zwakala's Lager was awarded the Best Light Beer in the Country and in 2022 our Weekend Special was awarded Best Beer in the Country. We are extremely proud of our award winning brews and strive to maintain the high standard of brewing.
