When Pieter Visagie chose a river-side brewery for the clean, clear waters that flowed from the mountain side, he couldn't have known that time would serve to build a suburb and two stadiums on its slopes. Yet, the legendary spring water still bubbles up to this day, as crystal clear and pure as ever.

It's always gone against our grain to use anything but the finest 100% pure natural Newlands spring water in every one of our legendary beers. And it always will.

Of course history is written on the pages of legend, like the traditions of our legendary beers. The taste of tradition, our beer is the toast of legends and, at the end of the day, more refreshing than pure mountain water.
