About thirty minutes north of Cape Town you’ll find the town of Paarl, which is where you’ll also find the Cape Brewing Company.

Situated on the ever expanding Spice Route estate – right next to Fairview Wine Estate – the R20 million brewery is open to visitors and welcomes tasting of it’s fine products.


We headed out there to take in the sights and tastes of the beer, food and to take a few pics of the place.



If you enjoy wine tasting trips to Paarl and the surrounding areas of the Boland, make sure you also check out the CBC Brewery too. We fear that it’s going to get mighty busy there come summer time.




There is a small charge for tasting and you can sample the four CBC beers [a lager, pilsner, Krystal Weiss and Amber Weiss] as well as three Jack Black Beers that they now brew too. They’re open daily – as well as Sundays.








Check out our reviews of some of the beer.
