At Soul Barrel, we believe beer is the greatest beverage in the world. Savoring an amazing brew can be a life changing experience. Our brewery exists to contribute to these epic moments by brewing artisanal, innovative beer. We aim to help create a thriving, world class South African beer culture.
Established when founder Nick Smith migrated from the Soul City of New Orleans to the Mother City of Cape Town, Soul Barrel was founded on the belief that real beer is made with soul. We are passionate about hoppy ales, old world fermentations and local ingredients. Our beer is characterized by an uncompromising commitment to quality. It reflects the time, place and personality of the people who brew it. Soul Barrel Brewing is located in the heart of the Cape Winelands outside of Cape Town, built within the old tank walls of the former Drakenstein Winery. Come share in our passion for brewing and celebrate beer made with Soul!
