Cape Town | Devil’s Peak Brewing Company was born in the craft beer revolution where we were proud to play an integral part in the education of South African beer consumers.
The name of our brewery was chosen to firmly root the brand in Cape Town. Devil’s Peak is a geological landmark steeped in myth. It has a strong authenticity and sense of place. It is iconic in the minds of all those who have come to experience it, which is what we strive for.
In March of 2012, after two years of business case development, recipe development, garage brewing, government applications, and acquiring the right talent, Devil’s Peak Brewing Company was ready to show South Africa what it was capable of.
This is when First Light Golden Ale and King’s Blockhouse IPA were introduced alongside our now retired Woodhead Amber Ale and Silvertree Saison. We have since introduced Devil’s Peak Lager and Devil’s Peak Pale Ale to our year-round offerings.
It wasn’t too long before demand for Devil’s Peak was outstripping supply, so we decided to move from our small setup in Somerset West to a new production facility in Cape Town. This new space, with beautiful views of Devil’s Peak and Table Mountain, is where we practice our craft. We also decided it would be a great place to open our very own brewpub – The Taproom.
Fast forward three years and we’re growing again! Our brand new brewing facility, situated in Epping, will allow us to further expand our offerings while continuing to innovate and push the boundries of craft beer in South Africa.
At the forefront of this innovation will be the Afrofunk sour facility, our dedicated, in-house barrel aging program which will focus on bringing this globally trending style to the forefront right here at home.
From our Explorer Series to an ever-growing list of international collaborations with some of the world’s most celebrated breweries, Devil’s Peak is leading the charge in challenging the conventions of what beer can and should be.
