Homebrewing Clubs in South Africa

May 28, 2012

I you are interested in beers and might want to start brew your self I would suggest you join a homebrewing club. It is a great way to get to know people already into brewing and a good way to get contact with suppliers of homebrewing equipment, malt, yeast etc. In the club you could share equipment, recipes, knowledge and so on. They all have regular meetings, annual festivals, e-mail lists and so on.

You could join their forum at:

The three homebrewing clubs in South Africa that I know of is:

SouthYeasters Homebrewers Club

Worthog Brewers
Main area: Johannesburg, Pretoria

East Coast Brewers

Port Elizabeth Homebrewers Association

Sedibeng Home Brewers
Main area: Southern Johannesburg area

    Hey! Great site!

    About beer clubs; I’ve recently started brewing, and was keen to join the WortHogs meetings, but the R90 price tag per meeting is really vulgar! So I’d like to start a free tasting-session/club for homebrewers (especially new brewers) in Pretoria; and the only requirement would be to bring some of your beer to share. If that sounds good to fellow homebrewers out there, go to

    and let’s get this thing going!

    Hi Mark! I did not know about the R90 / meeting. I only have experience from SouthYeasters in CT and they are “free of charge”. Bring along and share that is! It is a really good thing to share beer with other brewers because they can often help you out with things (not just “good” or “bad”).
    Good luck with your initiative!

    Really late comment, but the R90 (which is now around R120) includes food and drink.
