THE BEERS

​A range of unique and distinctively township, yet universally quaffable and playful beers
brewed in Soweto or under license with catchy and appropriate proprietary brands names.
"Brewing a Dream for Africa...from our kasi to the world!"
THE MASTER'S BREW - Original Lager  5.2%

Soweto Brew Co - Master’s Brew Original Lager is a golden malty beer with rewarding Munich malt flavour. There are soft toasty bread flavours that often seem like light caramel in the finish. The bitterness is on the low side so that the malt is emphasized, but the residual sugar well controlled.

 

The quality of the malt is paramount. Well-developed Avangard Munich and Weyerman CaraMunich flavors permeate the beer, with some aromas developed during the kilning of the malt, and others brought out during the mashing process. 

Background flavours of chocolate, caramel, and toffee are present, but without actual sweetness.

 

The beer itself is a deep golden amber, often with a reddish tint when held up to the light. The head is creamy with a light color. The body is moderate, but the mouthfeel may feel a little more full due to dextrinous malts used. 

 

The hop character is minimal. Almost without flavor or aroma hops, the bittering hops provide some balance at 17–20 IBUs. Only finest South African hops such as Southern Passion and Southern Star are used.

Soweto Brew Co. - Orlando Stout 6.1%

A stout like no other - with strong coffee bitterness and a hint of cinnamon.

In the second boil we infuse real ground 100% arabica beens and just a touch of cinnamon to create a creamy, yet light stout, that flows smooth and rich . A firm brown head, an impenetrable dark liquid with a rich taste of coffee that lingers and beckons the next sip.  The cinnamon is a touch of exotic.
