South Africa’s blossoming craft beer industry just bloomed even further with the launch of a new lager from Devil’s Peak Brewing Company – a pioneer in the local craft beer scene.

To mark this occasion, a launch event recently took place at The Taproom where we got to sample the new lager alongside the highly enjoyable fare which the brewery-come-eatery is becoming famous for. Light in body, light in bitterness, pale yellow in colour and brilliantly clear, the lager is sure to be a hit with Cape Town’s increasing number of craft beer aficionados.

‘We’re a lager-loving nation, and now, through craft, we can experience our favourite beverage with more sophistication,’ says Steven Jowell, Managing Director of Devil’s Peak Brewing Company. ‘Devil’s Peak Lager highlights the tradition of beer crafted with care, to be distinctive and full of flavour. In simple terms, it’s beer as it should be.’

‘South Africans now want greater variety from their first-choice drink, and craft brewers are perfectly positioned to adapt that age-old recipe to offer something deliciously refreshing and with a great deal more personality,’ said JC Steyn, Head Brewer for the Cape-based company.

Devil’s Peak Lager will be available in 340ml bottles from mid-August through leading retail outlets nationally.
