It was as simple as waking up one morning with a crazy idea – perhaps not initially realising it would later become an award winning one! Stellenbrau Brewery owner, Deon Engelbrecht struck gold when he made the decision to venture into the world of craft brewing.
During a visit to the KZN, Deon enjoyed a few craft beers with friends. Rising the following morning for a run, he did not expect to be feeling so refreshed, despite having the proverbial ‘few too many’ the night before. It was at that moment that he knew he wanted to brew his own craft beer and that the only place to do that would be Stellenbosch – a town filled with heritage…and thirsty students!
