Mitchell’s Forester’s Lager

Mitchell's Forester's Lager is a very light beer so perhaps nice for someone very new to craft beer. It's relative lac of flavor might be appealing to newbies and I must say, it did have a nicer and drier finish than many beers in its category.

Sedgefield Craft Beer Brewery

Sedgefield Craft Beer Brewery is a worthwhile stop if on the Garden Route. Their Porter & IPA are top notch.

Sedgefield IPA is a classic of the style, beautifully hoppy and soft. The citrusy palate and long dry finish are moreish.
