The King’s Blockhouse IPA is not only rated as the best beer in South Africa by the taste masters at ratebeer.com, but also by pretty much everyone who samples it’s bold hoppiness. Our flagship IPA has won best beer on show at the 2011, 2012 and 2014 Cape Town Festival of Beer, the 2014 Johannesburg Festival of Beer – and was the winner of the 2014 SAB Craft Brewer Championship.
It’s a decidedly bitter and fruit driven beer with huge flavour and aromatics. It’s not for the faint hearted, but it is a truly delicious beer.
We named it after the King’s Blockhouse – a historic military blockhouse on Devil’s Peak, built during the British occupation of Cape Town in 1796.
These day’s it’s a popular trail running and mountain biking destination, and Devil’s Peak Brewing Company sponsors the King’s Blockhouse Time Trial.
This trail run/ride from Deer Park to the King’s Blockhouse is scheduled every Tuesday from early March to late November come rain or shine.
Brewed in Cape Town, South Africa
