SANBT 2018 - Sippin' Silver

August 2018 -

The South African National Beer Trophy 2018 came to a close and we got invited to the award giving ceremony at Beerhouse Long street in Cape Town.

Excitement grew as we got informed that we won four awards… but which awards??

Competition was tight as they raised the bar from last year’s 35 points for a silver to 38 points in 2018, and the Gold from 40 points in 2017 to 43 points in 2018, a clear sign of the ever-improving quality of beer being brewed in South Africa.

The Prize giving was great, with 41 breweries earning some well deserved recognition with a total of 86 award winning beers… of course it’s going to be a great night!

We are over the moon with our achievement, and want to thank every single person that has ever supported Hazeldean Brewing Co. in our quest to brew the best beer, locally.

Keep your eyes out for our award winning beers!
