Shackleton Brewing Company

Our beautiful brewery and Taproom is the ideal venue for your function. Located at the brewery in Cape Town, this is where we get to showcase our range with the local community. We serve everything ice cold and fresh, the Shackleton way.

Shackleton Brewing Company stems from Steve’s (Head Brewer) adventures to Antarctica whilst researching climate change and oceanography. He spent 3 months exploring the open ocean of the South Atlantic as well as traversing the Antarctic continent.

During his time there he read about the great Sir Ernest Shackleton who, during the early 1900s, began a voyage to cross the Antarctic continent. The compelling story of exploration, innovation, leadership, adventure, survival and an implacable drive for success resonated as qualities that Steve deemed valuable for the brewery.

Our craft brewery is nestled in a beautiful location in Salt River, Cape Town where all our products are produced on-site, using a Brewhouse imported from the UK.

Similar to Sir Ernest Shackleton’s trip, our brewery has also had a wild ride with moments of bliss and a fair share of trying times. Through these ups and downs, we’ve come to appreciate the journey and what it has given us – resilience and a drive for success.

We strive to produce industry-leading craft Beers and Vodka Iced Teas and contribute positively to our local community.
