Backwards Bean Brewery

September 27, 2013

Backwards Bean Brewery is yet another (new) micro-brewery in South Africa. The brewery was originally called Origin Brewing Company but due to some trademark issues they changed the name to Backwards Bean Brewery. The brewery is based in New Doornfontein, Johannesburg not far (more or less opposite the road) from SMACK! Republic Brewing Co. (The Jozi Beer Co.) .

They recently advertised for people to help out with branding and so on so I guess they will have a website and so on, up and running in a short while.

According to Marcelle Radyn at Backwards Bean Brewery they “anticipate the licence to come through in November”. We are just waiting for the final inspection by the liquor board to take place. The physical premises has undergone quite a change as we have renovated most of it now. Our graphic design team are in the last strides of designing the bottle labels so should have that ready by mid October.”

If everything goes well they will attend the Cape Town Festival of Beer later this year. There is one problem though! They need help getting their beer down to Cape Town. Please send Marcelle an e-mail if you know how to help them out with that.
