Kleinsee Brewing Company is a premium craft beer brewing company who will be buying its very first commercial brewhouse. The complete driving force behind KBC is a dedicated, motivated and passionate family of 5. Upon buying the brewhouse KBC will open to the public as soon as possible in Kleinsee in Namaqualand in the Northern Cape. This will boost the local tourism in the area and will be the first ever craft beer brewery in Namaqualand.
As home brewers our passion for beer flourished when we visited Kleinsee for the first time. It is the ideal location for a brewery, as Kleinsee is evolving from a quiet mining town to a booming tourism destination in the next couple of years. KBC will be part of this boom and will definitely play a vital role in increasing the number of tourists visiting the town per annum.
We are so confident in our pursuit of this brewery that it is already a registered business. We are confident that we will be at full capacity within 6 months (1000 litres plus) and will then be upgrading to a larger scale brew house able to produce 12000 litres of beer per month. We already have an order that is pending with one of the large chain restaurants in South Africa. They are eager for their first deliveries and so are we!!
will brew premium craft beer for the South African and Namibian
market. Our flagship brew is a light crisp session lager. The name of
our lager is Long Beach Lager. Long Beach is the only beach in
Kleinsee that is open to the public. Our Long Beach Lager captures
the experience one has when walking on the beach. Cool, crisp,
refreshing and rejuvenating for the soul.
future brews will include a Sunset Red Ale, Strand Wolf Stout and a
West Coast Weiss. All of these will be brewed in rotation to make
sure we have stock on the day of the opening. We will also have a
special edition beer that will be sold in the brewery on launch day.

The logo is the paw print of the Strand Wolf (Beach Wolf).
So why the paw print?
While we were walking on the beach we noticed a paw print. We were convinced of one thing. It was definitely not a dog!! We later found out that it was the paw of a strand wolf.
The Strand Wolf is endemic to the coastline and is a shy animal. The Strand Wolf is a brown hyena. Unlike other hyenas the brown hyena doesn't "laugh", they howl like a true wolf, hence the name.
The paw encapsulates the individuals that own Kleinsee Brewing Comapny. We are a group of tightly knit family members, always staying in a "clan". Just as a "clan" of Strandwolves, we work together as a unity to raise our "cub" - Kleinsee brewery. Everything that is done at KBC is done as a unit and all the individuals have a say in the goings on of the company. Only through love and true passion is Kleinsee Brewing Company a "cub" we are truly proud of.
The colours of our logo was inspired by the many shades of blue one can see when walking along the beach. The mist bank that is always present over the waters, the different shades of blue as the ocean just gets deeper and deeper. Even the sky that goes from light to bright blue. It is truly a wonderful and beautiful place to be!
Kleinsee has a absolutely beautiful beach. This was the inspiration for our flagship. Crisp, clear and cool. Capturing the experience one gets when walking on the beach. The views from the beach also inspired our logo!
