About the Breweries
Combining European inspiration with South African innovation, we set out with a simple goal: to brew the beers we wanted to drink. We started small, with a homebrew system, a love for craft beer, plenty of passion and determination. The result? Hand crafted natural beer, made with the purest ingredients. Beers that can stand on taste alone.
We believe that making beer is like everything in life: you get out what you put in. And lets face it: beer is mostly water so brewing with the purest water we can find is a no-brainer. We only use spring water, flowing from the surrounding mountains and drawn through many layers of sandstone, naturally filtering impurities and gathering trace minerals en route; the result being crystal clear mountain water, perfect for brewing legendary beer that consistently delivers our signature taste.

As rich in history as it is in flavour, The Saggy Stone Brewery gives real meaning to the term microbrewery. This intimate stone structure used to be a church and locals joke that it’s a building intent on making people sing. It now houses a custom-built, brewing system allowing us to maintain our personal touch.
Overlooked by the majestic Langeberg Mountains, the environment serves as inspiration while the pure mountain spring water gives Saggy Stone beers their edge. Saggy Stone is brewed using the finest barley and hops and the addition of fresh, sweet and soft spring water from the farm’s natural water supply offers a superior taste that only nature can provide.
As demand grows, so must the brewery but the brewmasters agree that as long as there’s a firm supply of “great mountain water”, they ‘ll continue “making great beer”. Watch the magic happen by booking a brewery tour or if the mood strikes and we’re available, we’ll happily show you around without an appointment.
With homebrewing becoming a favourite pastime and an ever-growing number of South African craft beers to contend with, Adrian and Phillip knew that their beers had to be special.
A hobby became a passion and after many years of testing and tasting, they realised that while ingredients and processes may vary considerably, a soft, palatable water is the secret. The result is a range of local craft beers made pure by their very own mountain water.
