Ready to take a break from your usual Castle draft in exchange for a creative craft beer? If so, we’ve got a list of local must-visits for you!

Here is a list of some of the top craft beer hot spots to visit in Braamfontein.

There are a few interesting bottled craft beers to try and enjoy, from Weiss beer to Touro Tripple Blonde and more.

Neighbourgoods Market

This market is now the talk of the town – and for good reason! Not only can you get your hands on some fresh new threads and a couple ‘one of a kind’ trinkets for your dorm room, but you can also explore the exciting world of craft beer.

Pub 34

Everyone who’s anyone knows that Kitchener’s is where it’s at! Best known for serving up some of the best burgers in Braamfontein (you have to try their classic Joburger), they have also recently started collecting a few creative craft beers. Go check it out for yourself…

Quick tip – the next time you’re in Braamfontein and you’re in search of craft beer, make your way to Juta street. You will never, ever go wrong there! Cheers!
