Agar’s Brewery opened its doors on 1st August 2014.

The Agar family has a long tradition of brewing, dating back to 1852 when Charles Agar brewed pineapple beer in Durban. Mike Agar, the Brewmaster, has been brewing for over 25 years, and developed his passion whilst watching his grandfather brew in the 60’s and 70’s in Zululand. His hands-on approach has ensured that Agar’s produces consistently high quality beer and that the brewery is one of the highest rated in South Africa. Mike is ably supported by his brother Donovan who takes care of our growing sales footprint whilst focusing on building strong customer relationships.

Agar’s Brewery only uses the finest ingredients sourced from around the world to craft a family of distinctive beers, including its Jozi Blonde, Red Ale, White Dog Saison, American Pale Ale and Tomahawk IPA. Other beers include our Black Mamba Stout and English Ale. Newly introduced to our range include the Warrior IIPA and our latest North Side Bohemian Pilsner.
