In 2007, founding partners of Jack Black Brewing Company, Ross and Meghan McCulloch set out to change the craft beer landscape in Cape Town. Having experienced the North American craft beer culture firsthand, it was clear South Africa had much to learn. Fueled by passion, perseverance, and little else – at a time when the words “craft beer” were foreign to most – Jack Black’s has grown to become one of South Africa’s most sought after and well-loved craft beers.
Focussed on distinctive quality and innovation, our beer is made from the finest natural ingredients at our state-of-the-art Cape Town craft brewery. At Jack Black’s Brewing Company we’re dedicated to brewing beers that inspire us. Our focus is on flavour and our philosophy is to innovate while staying true to traditional hand-crafted methods.
Jack Black Brewing Company remains independently owned and operated with a goal to brew some of the highest quality and best-tasting beers in Africa.
In 2016 we opened the doors to our brand new home in the heart of Diep River, Cape Town. We’re excited to host our loyal customers and new fans at our tasting room, where old favourites as well as new brews, and limited edition beers, can be sampled in an environment representative of what we stand for as a brewery. A simple but delicious food menu is also on offer, as well as a small retail shop. We run brewery tours by appointment where guests can experience a behind the scenes look at all the various stages, processes and equipment necessary to brew our award-winning beers.
