Craft beers are coming out thick and fast in South Africa, leading many to dispense with having a favoured brew and getting into the habit of trying anything and everything that comes out in the hopes of discovering some truly enjoyable beers.

Devil’s Peak is a famous name in the craft beer industry, and having already delivered a number of tasty choices, they’re collaborating on yet another. Their partner: none other than impeccable Italian outfit Col’Cacchio, with whom they’re co-launching the CC Golden Ale.

Mercifully, the South African winter has calmed a little in the past week, hopefully leading to an early start to the summer where this Golden Ale’s refreshing tones will be best appreciated.

They’ve billed it as a light, crisp, and refreshing beer that malty sweetness includes some tropical fruit flavours and a dry finish. Not exactly the kind of drink that will keep the winter chill away, but definitely one that’s going to be a fantastic way to break our summer heat waves.

The CC Golden Ale is available both in SA and Windhoek, Namibia for a retail price of R32 – so the next time you head to Col’Cacchio for some fine Italian cuisine, give this drink a shot to see if it deserves a spot in your regular rotation!
