CAPE TOWN – Drifter Brewing Company located in Cape Town has announced that they will be launching another set of limited edition ocean aged beer.
Currently employing fourteen staff members in Cape Town and Johannesburg, the company first did this last year and it was the first brewery in the world to age beer in the sea.
This means that the beer bottles are aged on the ocean floor around Cape Town for one year. The concept originated in 2016 while the owner, Nicholas Bush, was scuba diving in an old shipwreck off of Cape Point.
Bush said: "Due to the darkness and cold temperatures, the ocean here is ideal for this unique fermentation process. It also goes with our tagline of adventure and creativity. I love thinking outside of the box...or under the sea”
Nicholas is from Cape Town originally and studied Mechanical Engineering at UCT.
