And just like that, it’s 2022!
While 2021 wasn’t filled with unique small batch brews, collaborations or big festivals, we reflect on a year of transition and moving out of our home of six years.
Here’s a look back at some highlights:
April 2021 - We threw an epic farewell party at our taproom in Woodstock!
May 2021 - We packed up our brewery, moved out of our Woodstock home and partnered with Vondeling Wines.
June 2021 - We collaborated with Sipho from O'live Handmade Soaps and made beer soap using our Stranded Coconut Ale to scrub away the pandemic blues.
July 2021 - We began contract brewing with our friends at Woodstock Brewery and moved to our new bottles.
September 2021 - Ivan, our wonderful intern, joined the Drifter crew for a few months.
October 2021 - The Drifter boat took to the seas again after some much needed TLC!
We participated in the Twilight racing series every Wednesday at the Royal Cape Yacht Club (where you can find our Legend Lager & Buchu G+T on tap!)
Work began on the 10 x 4 metre platform that became our new events venue, The Stage at Vrymansfontein Dam!
November 2021 - We hosted our first event of many at The Stage with our partners, Vondeling Wines.
December 2021 - Over the course of the year, we successfully exported 64,000 beers to Asia!
We look back at this year with appreciation for those that have continued to support us throughout our waves of transition, and look forward to a colourful & exciting 2022!
Yours in beer and appreciation,
