“So, been there, done that, bought the T-shirt, right? Wherever you look nowadays, there is a beard-toting hipster brewing his own batch of craft beer.

Trends 2015: Craft ciders
Finally, there is something to suit the non-beer drinker’s taste. The rise of the craft cider has hit South Africa hard. I’m just loving Sxollie – a taste of golden sunlight, bottled and branded in a simplistic, trendy way.
For the cider-fanatic keen to explore the world of craft cider, check out the following breweries:
- Everson’s Cider
- James Mitchell’s Gone Fishing Cider from The Drift organic farm
- Red Stone Pure Fruit Ciders from Clarens Brewery
- Windemere Premium Apple Cider from Windemere Farm“
