CALLING JOHANESBURG! SA’S TOP CRAFT BEER IS NOW AT HAND

CALLING JOHANESBURG! SA’S TOP CRAFT BEER IS NOW AT HAND

Listen up Jozi, if you’ve ever felt a lack of premium craft beer in your area, here’s good news! There’s a brilliant Cape Town-born beer you may have heard of, goes by the name Bone Crusher. This Wit has been showered with praise, including winning the South African National Beer Trophy Gold 2017, Pow Wow Gold 2017, and African Beer Awards Gold 2018.

Now that this nature-inspired brew has migrated further afield, you don’t have to trek to get some Bone Crusher down your neck!

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT FINDING THIS PREMIUM CRAFT BEER IN JOHANNESBURG

FIRST, A BIT ABOUT BONE CRUSHER CRAFT BEER…

This Crusher of a craft beer was one of our first, back in 2010. Its name was inspired by the Spotted Hyaena. Yes, a hyaena. That misunderstood creature.

And who are we to judge, right. Who among us has never laughed inappropriately and too loudly? Or ignored the 5-second rule? Or forgotten to brush our teeth on occasion? Or had a damn spot?

At Darling Brew we have a thing for wildlife, and each of our beers is associated with an endangered species. Most are prettier than the hyaena, but this little beast was the first. The name Bone Crusher was coined for the extreme strength of the hyaena’s jaw – check out those bone-crushing premolars on the logo!

BONE CRUSHER BEER IS ON EVERYONE’S LIPS!

Bone Crusher is a cloudy pale beer, with a powerful nose. This Witbeer has a candy nose aroma with hints of spicy coriander and orange peel, and a touch of sweet banana. The mouthfeel is lightened by a tart, zesty little zing of orange peel.

Best way to put it: refreshing af.

BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE… MEET THE RECENT EVOLUTION OF THIS CRAFT BEER.

Meet Hoppy, Son of Bone Crusher! Hoppy is a brand-new release, pouring into the wilds of South Africa. The evolution of Bone Crusher, it has the addition of Calypso and Amarillo dry-hops! Our thinking: that the hops would complement it’s spiciness and fruity character. Expect the Bone Crusher flavour you love, now packed with fruity/floral aromas, and a slightly increased bitterness.

Is this or is this not the most adorable thing you’ve ever seen in your rip tootin’, beer swillin’ life? Tell us what you think! Its ok if you have some criticisms; you won’t hurt his feelings; he hasn’t learned to read yet.
