Indulging in luxurious food experiences is an experience like no other.

From savouring delectable dishes crafted by talented chefs to dining in breathtaking locations that offer unparalleled views, food experiences are a feast for the senses that will leave you feeling both amazed and fulfilled.

They are sure to satisfy even the most discerning palates.

Seeking the thrill of dining in unique settings or simply looking for an unforgettable gastronomic adventure? Chef Ollie Swart, in collaboration with Jack Black, has something exciting that brings together the best of dining and brewing excellence this September.

Taking to Instagram, Swart wrote: “Enjoy a day filled with food inspired by my travels, sip on the freshest beer in town (wine and other drinks available too), and boogie to the banging beats of a handful of Cape Town's hottest DJs! To top it all off, @jackblackstaproom will be screening the Springbok vs. Scotland Rugby World Cup game at 5:45 (after the event officially ends). I will definitely be staying to watch after!”

Known for his ‘real food for real people’ approach, his expertise allows him to stand toe-to-toe with the world’s top chefs, but it is his down-to-earth style and passion for food that truly resonated with Jack Black, a brand founded in 2007 with a mission to brew the best beer in Southern Africa.

The Jack Black team noted that the brand has long been synonymous with experiences that go beyond taste, that it’s about a shared culture of authenticity and creativity, and that welcoming chef Ollie to the family is an exciting evolution of this ethos.
