    The brewers stepped in and satisfied the thirst with bigger, bolder beers with a considerably higher alcohol content than those found in most other brewing nations. The hot liquor tank from the former Mariendahl Brewery (c. 1880) is now housed in the museum at Newlands Brewery in Cape Town. This beer – a crisper, clearer version of the soupy ales people were used to – quickly caught on in Europe, but while many were making lager-style beers, it is Bavarian brewer Josef Groll who is widely credited with perfecting it.

    It’s no coincidence that South Africa’s first ever brew-route grew up in Cape Town’s Newlands suburb. The purity of the water flowing from the Newlands Spring made for perfect brewing liquor and homebrewers today make the journey to fill up buckets and bottles with the purest water they can find. Water is so important in brewing that people have spent years – and fortunes – trying to replicate the water found in some top brewing regions. Take the UK’s Burton-upon-Trent for example: the one-time brewing capital of the country churned out such clear, flavourful beers that breweries elsewhere wanted to replicate the town’s ultra-hard, calcium sulphate-rich water, developing a process that is still known today as “Burtonisation”.
