THE HOGSBACK BREWING COMPANY USE MOUNTAIN SPRING WATER
AND THE FINEST INGREDIENTS TO BREW LOCAL QUAFFABLE ALES

ISSA STORY

The Hogsback Brewing Company, officially established in 2017,  came into being after a long gin soaked Friday in which the decision to flee the Western Cape for the wilds of the Eastern Cape, more specifically Hogsback to amongst other things start a brewery, cause you know thats what you do. After drinking our entire first brew in a sitting, we realized how wildly optimistic our initial thoughts on scale and volumes were. I blame the gin.

A SHORT HISTORY OF BEER

Beer, approximately 7000 years old, first discovered in what is Iran today, spanned continents & cultures. Romans called their brew “cerevisia,” from Ceres, the goddess of agriculture, and vis, Latin for “strength. Beer was often drunk as a substitute for water. (Why did this change?)

Now nearly 7000 years later, the Hogsback Brewing Company, established in 2017 after reading a book , use our beautiful mountain water to craft highly quaffable ales in Hogsback, South Africa.
