We believe in the right to great beer!

Beerguevara traffics in the ingredients, equipment, and know-how to make great beer. Whether you’re a raw recruit, a brewing adventurer considering going commercial, or already the dictator at the helm of a cult microbrewery, Comrade – we’re here to help you make better beer.

Our home brewing store is located in Woodstock – a pretty vibey part of Cape Town. Please drop by. Store hours are at the bottom of this page. We also run a small bar at our store focussing on showcasing emerging brewers.

We Also Supply Breweries

BeerGuevara also represents three major European malting companies in South Africa: BestMalz (Germany), Castle Maltings (Belgium) and Thomas Fawcett & Sons (UK). We work on a regular import cycle and supply malt and other brewing supplies to many of South Africa’s great micro breweries. If you’d like to explore our offerings and pricing to breweries, please get in touch here.

Our Story

Started by comrades, brothers-in-arms and (as fate would have it) brothers-in-law, Anthony Cawood and Andrew Cook, BeerGuevara was the brewing supply company we dreamed of, couldn’t find … and then launched in 2012 – from the lounge of our Newlands home. Understanding wives, ecstatic (or at least midly enthusiastic) friends and some solid help from the Southyeasters Brewing Club quickly turned our first brewing workshop into a thriving business … and our lounge into a disaster. So we moved to Woodstock, teamed up with Comrade Antonie Speirs and got stuck into supporting the Craft Brew Revolution sweeping the country. We’re still at it. Come on – join up!
