Old Balgowan Winery – Brewery

October 15, 2012

Old BalgowanJust south of Nottingham Road along the R103 you will find one of the newest breweries in KwaZulu Natal. The Old Balgowan Winery has a brewery and they even have plans to grow barley on the Old Balgowan Farm.

According to their website the five different beers have been well received. “Our beers are traditionally made and can last for years out of direct sunlight. The risidual sediment at the bottom of the bottle is as a result of the process and is normally left there and thrown away much like the sediment in a red wine. ”

They currently have a Lager, Pilsner, Ale and Bitter and a Cherry Ale made from black cherries.

I also know about plans for a brewery just south of Old Balgowan and another one to the north-west of Nottingham Road (close to the Lesotho boarder).
