As you get closer, you feel the energy shift from the tranquil pine-lined roads of Magoebaskloof to a buzz, an undercurrent of excitement… the winding track takes you around the bend to the glass-fronted Craft Brewery and a burst of colour and movement… the funky Zwakala logo on gorgeous young people at the beer and gin bar; Luca Tooley, the brewmaster, talking animatedly about his award-winning Lager and new lemongrass beer….
You are at the northern-most Craft Brewery, in the scenic Magoebaskloof Mountains. Here, the clear, pure mountain waters from the Letaba River are turned into the Limpopo Lager, Naked Ale and Mountain Weiss this micro-brewery is famous for. Each batch of beer is handcrafted with expertise and passion by Luca and the brewery is a favourite place to hang out, slow down and enjoy the beautiful scenery, farmy atmosphere and Tooley family hospitality. Kids and dogs play on the lawns while you can enjoy your gourmet burger and home-made ice cream washed down with a cool brew in hand. Slow down, come closer. Enjoy the mountain magic at Zwakala.
The Zwakala Brewery is open on weekends for beer tours and tastings too. If you enjoying the vibe of Limpopo why not stay over at Zwakala River Retreat
