Established in 2012, this bold and uniquely hand-made craft-brewed beer is brimming with three grains, three hops and a dash of sensation. The illusive 7th ingredient is a secret spice they call the “L7 Touch”; together, these seven natural ingredients enjoy a long maturation process, resulting in a full-bodied, light-amber beer.
Inspired by South Africa and made by the hands of innovative traditional Belgian brewers who are familiar with a rich history of beer making, this premium, complex yet easy drinking beer stands apart from established premium brands and anti-establishment craft beer by projecting its own clear “lighthouse” identity as a Premium Belgian Beer.
The experience of L7 begins with a slightly bitter, floral and fruity taste from the hops, followed by a smooth, round transition to a sweeter taste from the malts. Both sensations are enriched and enhanced by the secret spice.
Some call it beer, they call it art.
Beer and Art?
Crafting a fine beer is an art form; and creativity is worth celebrating. Since 2016 L7 has proudly associated themselves with South African artists, designers, cinema producers, and the local creative culture. This is why they work with galleries, independent movie theatres, live music venues and conference centres to bring art to the public eye. Collaborations like the International Public Art Festival (IPAF), World Art, Baz-Art and Cape Town Fringe Festival are just some of the many art collaborations that L7 is involved in.
Nothing but the good stuff
No chemicals, colourants, flavouring or preservatives are added to the beer – L7 is 100% natural. This includes the CO2 in their beer; which they allow to build up naturally during their fermentation process, using similar techniques as the making of Champagne.
They go one step further, introducing high standards of environmental responsibility and sustainability to their production process. This includes reducing water waste in the brewery, reusing yeast, and only using eco-friendly techniques for their bottle labels.
The beer itself is also produced using organically farmed ingredients, and is completely free of additives and chemicals; tasty and good for you – some say it is the best craft experience they have had. Once bottled, L7 has an enviable two-year shelf life.
