    Example text

    The arrival of Pieter Visagie, an Antwerp sailor, was a turning point for the Tavern. He arrived with brewing knowledge and soon set up what was South Africa’s first “clear beer” brewery near the Liesbeek River. In 1658, after a false start or two (the 1657 brew never fermented), he brewed South Africa’s first pint, which Van Riebeeck recorded as being “delicious”. The country’s first brewhouse was built in 1659 and South Africa’s long and tumultuous love affair with beer began. It was far from plain sailing though.

    Some state the offence as brewing undrinkable beer, some say it was pouring short measures, others claim that cutting the price of beer in a tavern was the crime, but all agree that the punishment was drowning. Whether beer was the medium in which the wrong-doers were drowned is disputed, though it’s unlikely the despot would waste his precious booze drowning miscreants. The first British settlers to reach American shores weren’t full-on puritans. In fact, when the Mayflower made landfall in 1620, it missed its mark somewhat.

    Smaller breweries were swallowed up and two brewing giants arose – SAB and Ohlsson’s, with a smaller player still hanging on to a few loyal beer drinkers. A north-south lager divide emerged, with those in Cape Town preferring pints of Lion (Ohlsson had bought the Pretoria brewery in 1902) and Jo’burg dwellers lapping up the Castle. As SAB expanded into the Cape, there was talk of the two merging, but as discussions broke down the breweries became rivals, each one employing new marketing techniques to get their beers noticed.
