Craft stores in South Africa are booming, but not everyone is in on the fun.
Craft stores are a must-have for anyone who loves craft beer.
The number of craft beer lovers has grown by about 30 percent in the past five years, and that’s a trend we’re seeing all over the country.
So, where are you going to find some of the best craft beer in South African towns and cities?
We’ve collected a few of our favorites for your reading pleasure.
South AfricaCraft beer is a relatively new trend in the South African beer scene.
Since the early 2000s, craft breweries have sprouted up in many cities, and some have even become national chains.
For instance, South Africa’s only craft brewery, M.A.S. Brewing, opened in Cape Town in 2012, and now has about 20 employees and plans to double that to 100 in the coming year.
The craft beer craze in South Africans is a mix of local, regional, and international, said Kip Mofo, co-founder of the South Africa Beer and Pub Association.
Many of these breweries are located in the townships of the region, while others are located just outside of cities, such as Johannesburg, Pretoria, Durban, and Durban.
South Africa has a population of just over 7 million, but it is a growing craft beer market.
South African beer drinkers are in for a treat.
Craft beer, in addition to being a staple of the craft beer scene, is one of the top tourist attractions in the country, with visitors spending over $6 billion per year.
That’s up from $2.3 billion in 2013, according to the Beer Institute.
In 2017, South Africans spent over $1.6 billion on craft beer, with nearly $2 billion spent on beer and wine, according the South Africans Beer Association.
Craft beer has been a popular trend among tourists since the early days of the beer boom, when tourists spent tens of millions of dollars on beer.
Nowadays, more than 1 million tourists visit South Africa each year, and the beer industry is also thriving, said Mofa.
The South African craft beer industry isn’t as big as it once was, but there are still a few big players.
Mofe says South Africa is the third-largest craft beer producer in the world, after Germany and China.
That industry is currently worth $1 billion and growing at a rate of about 6 percent a year.
In the past, South African breweries could only sell one or two styles of beer each year.
Now, that number has increased by more than 60 percent.
The breweries are also looking to expand in other areas, such the brewing process and distribution.
South African brewers are also focusing on specialty beer and microbrewery.
A microbrewer is a small, independent brewery that makes beer for small, home brewers.
Some of these small breweries are popping up in townships like Gauteng, Gautimahoe, and Limpopo.
MOFe says there are more microbreweries in South Australia and New Zealand, but they’re not as big.
The country has about 50 microbrewers, but the industry is only about 30.
The big craft brewers are still in the process of expanding into new markets.
Craft brewers have a long way to go before they can compete with big international brands like Guinness and Guinness International.
In order to be a good contender in the market, they need to develop their own distinctive flavors, Mofy says.
The best way to find craft beer is to visit breweries.
The more you see, the better, Mafo says.
But that doesn’t mean you have to get lost in a world of beer.
South Africans are also very crafty about where they buy their beer.
Craft breweries will usually have a store in the city center.
If you are in a tourist destination, look for craft breweries on the main drag, Mfomoo said.
