Urban Brewing Company, Talisman Weissbier

This Bavarian-style Weiss is brewed right here. It’s a traditional take on a Weiss, but scraps any gimmicks in favour of a crisp, clean hoppy finish.

Stellenbosch Brewing Company, Stellies Bosch Weiss

Inspired by the liquid gold served up at Bavarian breweries but tweaked to suit local palates, this is a properly refreshing wheat beer.

 Urban Brewing Company, Oktoberfest Festbier

This traditional amber lager is swigged at festivals (or poolside). Light, but heavy on flavour.
