What and Why of Joburgbrew.
Without boring you to death with buzzwords, we’ll just be honest and say that we are an online store that sells some legendary craft beer to a bunch of thirsty humans, through a screen to their door.
If we can change the world while we do that, then that’s pretty rad too.
We’ve taken the time to find some of the best South African craft breweries. Battling our way through traffic and dust, we have travelled across the country to discover some great people making amazing beer.
All our beer is currently manufactured, boxed and sourced in South Africa. We feel this is important: supporting the local economy and its small business owners is central to our company ethos. So when you buy from our store the money is going back into your community, making it just that little bit better.
Founding With Family.
One evening, over a few craft beers, Brett Magill and Delville Reynolds began talking about how awesome it would be to brew their own beer and sell it. After all, they both loved craft beer – and making some cash would be a welcome by-product.
In early 2015, Brett mentioned the idea to a friend who suggested that, instead of spending money on a bricks-and-mortar store, everything should be sold online.
The idea developed into creating a platform to connect crowds of people that want to drink craft beer with crowds of people that brew it and sell it. The store itself would provide this connection.
And so, eventually, Joburgbrew.com was created.
In June 2015 Brett teamed up with another friend, Richard Chemaly, who became a seed investor. Joburgbrew.com officially began administration on 1 June 2015, and opened for business in September 2015.
It’s about all of us.
Our story is being written every day; not just by us, but by you, our customers. We hope that you’ll enjoy kicking ass with us, helping us to change the online world of craft beer forever!
Until then, give our store a shot. You’ll be happy you did.
