Birkenhead Brewery was established in 1998 and is situated on Walkerbay Estate, a farm just outside Stanford in the Western Cape. The country estate is home to a vineyard, a winery, a microbrewery and a water bottling plant. While the brewery has changed hands since its inception, the quality of its beer has not, and Birkenhead’s head brewer has continued to brew beer with the same heart and passion as that of the brewery’s original brewmaster, Andy Mitchell.
Birkenhead Brewery’s range of beer includes a pilsner, honey blonde ale and a chocolate stout. The premium lager is the brewery’s original beer and head brewer Benson Mocuphe’s favourite Birkenhead beer. The brewery’s fantastic range of beer is available in 340ml bottles. Other beers brewed include the Laughing Croc – a beer with tropical fruit and caramel malt aromas – and the Birkenhead Pride Old English Ale.
