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 have had to come to terms with the fact that we have outgrown our current location and, sniff sniff, it’s time to bid Arts on Main goodbye…
