Get into the festive spirit - grab Xmas by the baubles and visit Zwakala Brewery in Magoebaskloof over the summer holidays! Cheerio Road takes you on a winding route leading to the glass-fronted Craft Brewery, where a burst of colour and movement welcomes you along with an undercurrent of excitement. Under the funky Zwakala logo at the bar, the dynamic staff exudes a welcoming, lively energy - the same warm hospitality of the whole Tooley family who have various businesses running on Zwakala farm.

Here, the crystal-clear waters from the Broederstroom River are masterfully transformed into the renowned Limpopo Lager, Naked Ale, and Mountain Weiss that this micro-brewery is famous for. The Weekend Special, with its distinctive lemongrass flavour, secured the title of National Beer of the Year 2022 and has become the Cape Parrot brand, celebrating this charismatic bird. Every batch of beer is lovingly handcrafted with expert precision and a deep passion for the craft by Brewmasters, Luca and Rob Tooley and their team.

Beyond the exceptional brews, what makes Zwakala truly special is all that it offers to be able to celebrate the holidays with a vibey crowd or to choose to slow down and savour the natural beauty of the surroundings from the sidelines. Children and dogs frolic on the inviting lawns as you indulge in Zwakala’s homemade ice cream and enjoy a gourmet burger or short rib and chips with a cold, crisp brew in hand. So, if you're looking to immerse yourself in the magic of the Magoebaskloof mountains and get into the spirit of the festive season, Zwakala Brewery is the place to be… come closer!

Zwakala Brewery has award-winning beers, estate wines, a local gift shop, outdoor games and a great vibe. Book a beer-tasting tour and learn about the art of brewing.
