This is inner city brewing to the max - @metallanebrewery by the main man @murraymiddleton - on Kloof Street. I am so excited about this branding. Yes the beer is going to take to the shelves by storm but the actual brand is going to knock the market for a six. No doubt. Murray and his designer have taken the time - some would say extra time - to unpack what Metal Lane Brewery will mean to everyone who picks it up. Not only that but they've unpacked the whole industry to make sure the brand…

This is @murraymiddleton he owns and runs and brews @metallanebrewery like a champion! I got to chat to him today. There are a few trade secrets I can't let out the bag just yet but here's a guy who knows what he wants knows where he's going and will work and experiment and pursue until he gets there. #drink #beer #hophead #ipa #drinkcraft #drinklocal #craftbeer #capetown #metallanebrewery #vision #brewery #entrepreneur

Here's Durban flipping Cape Town The Bird - courtesy of @poisoncitybrew. Driven by surf this brand has zero f#!ks to give.  The lager their core bird (not the other bird) has an easy fruit and malt flavour on the tongue but a crisp bitter finish.  Look. If you wanna give it without consequence this is your solution. #summerfun #capetown #sunset #lager #craftbeer #beer #surf #skate #hophead #beer #drink #tattoo

This makes me think of @eddieizzard's Cake or Death: @mikkellerbeer or die. The choice is simple I think. If that isn't badass enough there's a guy holding a skull riding a leopard on the label. So much for the American dream.  A pretty tasty pilsner from Belgium - with a pretty price tag too - but worth the experience. Local is lekker but sometimes imported expands the horizons.  Pours a strong orange with a thick medium head. Very citrusy and hoppy on the nose with a light but full body…

It matters not who you love where you love why you love when you love or how you love it matters only that you love. (John Lennon)  It's been a year since I had the @darlingbrew pomegranate lager. Released last year for Valentine's Day it hasn't lost its magic. Granted this is a new batch but it still delivers the same promise.  This is my love. Just as she is. And isn't that just how it should be. Funny thing is she doesn't even drink but she has all the time in the world for me... and my…

Wanna hear something funny? I didn't get why this @devilspeakbc apricot pale ale was called "stoned" till just the other day...  Turns out stoned fruit is the general term used for some fruit of the Prunus species. Why? Because the seed it very large and hard. Like a stone. Ta-da! Now who says beer isn't educational? Thanks #dpbc for teaching me a thing or two. #paleale #hophead #minimal #craftbeer #beer #beertography #beerporn #yellow #sunday #summerfun #capetown

Afternoon delight... if you know what I mean  thanks @woodstockbrewery for this sexy hoppy golden ale.  It delivers the tantalising promise every time. Mind blowing.  #beer #craftbeer #afternoonbeer #ale #hophead #capetown #lovecapetown #vsco #lgbt #tattoo #ink #beerporn

"Enjoy my friend and when you are finished have another!" - wise words from @oldpottersinn about the City Slicker.  Local Overberg barley and American hops it's a crisp treat. A decent IBU for a pale ale but a gentle ABV so you can have another as they suggest.  Nothing super distinct about the flavour but it is really enjoyable. Two out of their range and I have high hopes for the rest.  #breakfastbeer #paleale #ale #beer #hophead #hops #malt #craftbeer #symmetry #urban #instagood…

This Redrock Rusty Trigger lager fulfills its promise more than any of its co-brews under the same name (imo). Quite a hardcore bottle with a sweet malty inside. Kind of like me  just kidding.  I love the brand idea around Redrock. I think that the beers need to deliver more on their promises. Where there should be hops make damn sure I know there are hops. Where there should be malt blow my malty socks off. This might just be me but for any craft beer I'd rather it over deliver on flavor…

The 1st beer I ever had in Cape Town: @woodstockbrewery Californator - American IPA  The guys at Woodstock are always really welcoming and good for a chat. It's always a pleasure being there and quite honestly I should go there more often. I'm an IPA lover - a definite hop head - and this is one of my top three. Glorious.  Take a moment to appreciate the good things in life this weekend.  #goodfriday #beer #ipa #hophead #hops #craftbeer #capetown #instagood #vscogood #woodstock #brewery…

Possibly one of the most crisp saisons I've had in ages by @themakersbrew - craft in word & deed. A subtle intro of flavor onto your tongue with a malted middle and a creep-up-on-you-slowly-and-then-boom spicy end.  I've never had this before and it was a spontaneous pick off the shelves. A winner indeed. #beertime #beer #craftbeer #beergeek #saison #foodie #light #instagood #humpday #drinkcraft #craftnotcrap

Fresh Hop IPA by @jackblackbeer is definitely the freshest beer in town. I'm a sucker for an IPA and this one doesn't disappoint. Well. The only disappointing thing is that the brew is very limited BUT I was gifted with two of the beauties and will hopefully pick up some more soon. From the bottle's label design and write-up (minus the one grammar error cough) it is gorgeous. What an iconic African beauty. I think in South Africa's current turbulence the true string to African roots is…
