Cape Town Bar Cracks The ‘Best Beer Bars In The World’ List

Beer House on Long

Local Cape Town watering-hole gets the nod of approval as one of the best beer bars in the world.

South Africans love their beer, and with the craft beer explosion finding a massive radius of influence in Cape Town, one of the city’s most well-known bars has made the list of the ’21 best beer bars in the world’.

The list, compiled by the lifestyle gurus at Thrillist, includes the famous Beer House on Long Street, placing it alongside other great bars across the United States, Europe, South America and Australasia.

“Even if they often don’t rank in beer aficionados’ typical lists, the Beerhouse on Long is an oasis in Africa for anyone curious about the exploding craft beer movement on the continent,” states the article.

“Their beer list is physically massive, not only because of 20 taps and over 100 bottles available, but also thanks to the pages dedicated to education on styles and local production. Their commitment to highlighting African brews makes them a true standout, especially since opening a second location in Johannesburg in July of 2014.”

The entry also makes mention of the Devil’s Peak King’s Blockhouse IPA as the beer to drink.  Well done to the team at Beer House.
