Established when founder Nick Smith migrated from the Soul City of New Orleans to the Mother City of Cape Town, Soul Barrel was founded on the belief that real beer is made with soul. We are passionate about hoppy ales, old world fermentations and local ingredients. Our beer is characterized by an uncompromising commitment to quality. It is a reflection of the time, place and personality of the people who brew it. Soul Barrel Brewing is a craft brewery located in the heart of the Cape Winelands outside of Cape Town, near Franschhoek, built within the old tank walls of the former Drakenstein Winery.
