A poem inspired by Wolfgang
January 11, 2016

Skryf met lyf is ‘n kombinasie van wie Mia is, wat sy sien, en waaroor sy wonder.
Dinge uit my en ander lewens wat ek oplet, neerpen en uitvou in stories, gedigte & gedagtes.

Idees ry op woorde rond, en met die deel van my skribbels hoop ek om mense te help dink oor nuwe dinge,
uit vars hoeke, en om nuwe buite en binneplekke te ontdek in die proses.

The inspiration for my piece:
Something Wolfgang said in our interview. “I can change my little radius,
and if I do that, I’ve done something.”

Burgundy Collective Beer Coasters
January 11, 2016

We are a small team who enjoy taking the greatest care and consideration throughout each step of the process, constructing our bags to last and grow more beautiful with age and wear. All our products, inspired by simplicity and functionality, are exclusively made in our studio in Stellenbosch, South Africa

Our inspiration for CBC Craft Colab came from the idea of creating functionality through simplistic design. Leather coasters were the perfect answer. It is often in life that small things can make a lasting impression, just due to the fact that they fulfill a needed purpose.

The Burgundy Collective Leather Coasters will add the perfect combination of style and sophistication to your craft beer drinking experience.

Design for #CraftColab2 | Mareth Colleen
January 11, 2016

MARETHCOLLEEN is the brainchild of Mareth van der Walt and Colleen Lesch, a forceful fashion duo that resides in Cape Town. A fully-fledged creative partnership and the production of a range of ready-to-wear women’s apparel.Using locally sourced talent and materials, the passionate pair produces a diverse range of quality garments. The range places a strong emphasis on intricate beadwork.

We always do hand beaded items and love incorporating them into our collections so when we went to visit the CBC brewery we found the interior and all the machinery’s shapes and metallic hues very inspirational. The gunmetal colours of the bottling line, silver stainless steel of the draft taps, tanks, copper lamps, golden amber of the Harvest Lager and the golden orange of the Mandarina Bavaria IPA. We decided to incorporate these colours and shapes into a hand beaded neckpiece. The sheer mesh top finishes off the look and adds a touch of femininity.

Kwartels en Manna | #CraftColab2
January 11, 2016

Charge all things you fashion with a breath of your own spirit – Kahlil Gilbran, The Prophet

“Inspired by nature in its purest form, we are passionate about using seasonal, locally sourced materials to create and curate one-of-a-kind, bold and emotionally provoking installations.

Our CBC installation is inspired by the value of time-honoured processes and the organic combination of movement, balance and contrast; elements that together, personify nature. In our expression, Kwartels en Manna celebrates the consideration of craftsmanship, skill and passion, artistic endeavor and impact of work done by hands, the acumen of precision, and appreciation of every detail of the process. Because, creating a truly exceptional beer is (nothing other than) a refined art.” – Tarien Odendal

CBC Craft Colab 2 | Fanny Chanel
January 11, 2016

Fanny Chanel is an honest flavour driven passion for ice-cream. Making ice-cream the way is was made in 1930’s. Maggie Beer once said “Time can be tasted in Food”, this is how i feel about ice-cream, tasting the flavour in its purest form. To be making ice-cream for a living is such a blessing and a dream come true._MG_5424

Wolfgang’s passion for what he does is infectious, he has integrity in what he does and he does it well. He focus’s on the best quality ingredients for his beers which you can taste. It’s not just about the beer, it’s about the process, the people, the malt, the hops. In saying this; my inspiration comes from not just using the beer, but to use what goes into the beer & fermentation process. People can then taste 3 different aspects (ingredient, process, end product) of the CBC beer making process.

CBC Amber Weiss Ice Cream
September 29, 2015


1 bottle CBC Amber Weiss
150ml full fat milk
4 egg yolks
100g sugar
1 tub of Fairview real Greek yogurt


While reducing the Amber Weiss in a sauce pan over medium heat by approx. 20%, whish the egg yolk and sugar until light and creamy.
After the Amber Weiss has sufficiently reduced, add the milk to the beer mix. Don’t worry if it curdles.
Pour the beer/milk mix through a fine mashed sieve to the egg/sugar mix, whisk continuously. Pour the mix back into the sauce pan and continue whisking over medium/low heat until the beer cream thickens up.
Pour back to the bowl and let it cool down to room temperature.
Pour into an ice cream maker and freeze.

CBC Red Weiss 2

Our Red Weiss has been so popular our last batch sold out within only a couple of days!

To craft the perfect brew takes time, patience and some waiting. For our brewmaster, Wolfgang has to set aside a tank in which this delicious brew can be crafted. But the wait is finally over!

Our Red Weiss is an amber coloured Hefeweissbier, unfiltered with a slight red tone from the most expensive caramel malt in the world.

The latest brew of Red Weiss is now available from the brewery. Don’t tell us we did not warn you!

CBC Imperial IPA_Spritzed

Cape of Good Hops, Cape of Storms, and with new batch Imperial IPA we can guarantee it will be a storm to remember!

By using only two American hops called Galena and Mosaic the intense hop aroma reflect the aroma profile of these hops. Our Imperial IPA has wonderful fruity characters like gooseberries, passion fruit, granadilla and complimented with grassy resinous flavours from the dry hopping.

It is now available from the brewery and your favourite Craft Beer store!
