You must be aged 18 or over to purchase alcohol. It is an offence to sell alcohol to anyone under the age of 18 in South Africa.

If your order is a gift and contains alcohol, the recipient must also be aged 18 years or older. An adult over the age of 18 will be required to sign for delivery. Also 17.9 years old is not the new 18…

COVID 19 and OTHERS world changing events

That’s some crazy stuff right their folks. All rules and your rights are subject to be turned upside down should government choose to do so. In these events we try our best to stay calm, drink beer and follow the new rules, but don’t Zol.


These T&C’s shall be subject to and interpreted in accordance with the laws of South Africa. Our failure to enforce a right does not amount to waiver of it.

However, these T&C’s will not apply in the event of the occurrence (certified by the Republic of South Africa or if minister Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma says so) of a widespread viral infection transmitted via bites or contact with bodily fluids that causes human corpses to reanimate and seek to consume living human flesh, blood, brain or nerve tissue and is likely to result in the fall of organised civilisation.
