A very nice little brewery on steroids – especially when it comes to technological advances and energy savings!

– Dewald Goosen, brewmaster at Tuk Tuk

Beer

The choice of ingredients is the first step to creating exceptional craft beer. Our bespoke brews are made from carefully selected local and imported hops and malts, specially cultured yeasts and crystal clear spring water, regularly sourced from Leeu Estates’ mountain spring.

We are excited to offer our range of four Tuk Tuk craft beers, two of which will change with the seasons, each handcrafted in our 250-litre capacity copper microbrewery by our brewmaster Dewald Goosen, as well as a selection of four of our partner CBC’s top brews, made at their state-of-the-art plant at Spice Route.
