A B O U T

The idea for a Brewing Company was inspired by a great thirst that comes from two decades of geological exploration in the African bushveld and beyond, by a group of explorers who are rather fond of the shared ritual of beer and bush tales around the campfire. Mineral Services, the founding company of Hoghouse, already had a much loved mascot, so the little warthog was natural choice to use for the Hoghouse Brewing Company’s identity, being legendary little beasts with remarkable grit and spirit.

 

Our approach to brewing is collaborative. Tom Nowicki is our Brewing Director overseeing recipe development, quality control, brewing strategy and all things scientific. Tom is a geologist and expert in the field of diamond exploration and evaluation. Brewing beer is his yang to a very specialised yin. Bruce Johnson who runs MS Engineering, our Engineering technologies division manages the technical aspects of the plant and brewing process. Gary Templeton, also an engineer and manager of the MS Aviation entity, looks after the business side of the brewery. Lunga Bukulu is our brewing assistant.

Our brewery taproom is still in hibernation, post covid-19 and whilst we have been upgrading our brewhouse. We are pouring beer at our Café Mon – Sat and especially on Friday nights when we host a BBQ pop up at the bakery. Happy Hour 4pm-5pm / half price drafts.

The brewery was built with environmentally considerate practices, utilising a rainwater capture system for cleaning water and a heat exchange unit to reduce energy consumption for brewing and refrigeration. Our spent grain is taken to a nearby farm and used as animal feed. Enjoying a Hoghouse beer directly from the taproom above the brewery or in the restaurant, ensures that your beer has not been transported anywhere, nor required any packaging. Possibly the greenest way to enjoy your pint.
