ANNOUNCEMENT – We’re Growing!

Written by on November 22nd, 2016 // Filed under Beer, General

That’s right, SMACK! is getting bigger! We’ve taken a few bold steps to be able to brew you more anarchistic ales.

It’s been quite a ride in the (almost) 4 years since we launched in March 2013. From the Bree Street Belle Golden Ale taking home the prize for the best beer from a new microbrewery at the inaugural SA Craft Beer Champs in 2013, to our Newtown Nemesis being named as a top 10 beer in SA in 2015, we’ve been diligently pumping out beer from our relatively small (but awesome!) German brewing system. Brewing on a small scale is hard work, and we decided that it’s time to upscale!

From our launch until now, our hole-in-the-wall brewery has been based in the Arts on Main building in the Maboneng precinct, where a lot of you have no doubt sampled our wares on Sundays at Market on Main. This location has been a truly epic base for us, being slap bang in the city we love, allowing us to serve our hoppy offerings to the thousands of patrons who have walked through our doors. Sadly, we had to come to terms with the fact that we outgrew our inner city location and, sniff sniff, the time arrived to bid Arts on Main goodbye…

What does this mean?

In order to upscale we are relocating to an industrial location as we begin our expansion.  Space is all important which is why we are venturing outside our beloved CBD. We will update you on the details as we manage this transition.

Our current space at Arts on Main officially closed its doors at the end of November.  Sundays at Market on Main will never be the same. It’s sad, yes, but at the same time exciting…

Think of us as your teenage child that’s about to leave home for university. Our bags are packed, we are full of nervous energy, the world awaits…

From all of us at the SMACK! team, cheers!

SMACK!
