Zwakala Craft Brewery Polokwane:

IMG_7614.jpg
As most of you would know, my wife and I took a weekend break to the Limpopo Province of South Africa. The real purpose of this trip was to visit a Craft Brewery named Zwakala, which means come closer and that is exactly what I did, I went to visit. The Brewery is approximately 300km away from my house, thus it is a 600km round trip. To get to the Brewery, we had to drive over a gravel road, through a forest, this brewery is definately of the beaten track.

We drove with my wife's VW Polo, which did a rather good job off-roading!! Just look at the road, not exactly smooth sailing!!

After a rather rough drive, we finally arrived at the brewery!! I needed some cold beer, to wash down the dust from my throat!!

At the brewery, you buy your beer, over the counter with the brewing tanks right there, in the background, you cannot get much closer to the source than this!!

Below you can see the beer taps as well as a Gin tap, and our very friendly barman, this guy was really friendly and was passionate about the brewery and their beers!!

I started with the Zwakala Lager, pictured below, it did not have much of a head as can be seen. The beers are unfiltered, and tastes quite good, I liked this one!!

Below you can see the story of this brewery. The brewery was built in an old work shed!!

My wife and I strolled around on the premises, as you can see this brewery is built in very beautiful surroundings.

The bar tender, who is also the assistant brew-master showed us around and explained the beer brewing process to us.

The next beer was a Zwakala Moringa, moringa is a type of fruit, which you can read more about by following this link. This beer had a bigger head, and I could taste a bit of the fruit, but not to much, this one was also great tasting and very healthy, if you can believe all the health benefits of the moringa fruit!!

As you can see the beer has a beautiful head, with some good carbonation.

They brewery had this very nice couch outside where we could sit and relax, while drinking our drinks, just look at the view!!

I hope you liked my post as much as I enjoyed living it!!

Wow... what a great journey! Sure the car performance is awesome as it is able to travel at such an uneven road. I did not have the chance to travel to this kind of place and I think it is really unique.

What a great place to grab a couple beers! That scenery is incredible. Looks like the perfect place to relax and knock back a few cold ones. I'd love to visit South Africa some day. The more images I see from there the more I'd love to travel there. I've heard it's an offroaders dream vacation.

Yes that is right, there is many off-road opportunities. Thanks for the nice comment.
