Beer is food


Beer is food. Or so says Mark, one of the three founders of Napier Brewery, and beer-lover of note. Mark started making beer when he was just a teenager, inspired by his grandfather who was a hobby-winemaker. He left his UK homeland for South Africa as a young man, on a spontaneous whim with a friend, arriving in Cape Town in 1991. His friend lasted three weeks before returning; Mark made his first visit home seven years later.

As a carpenter, Mark loves making things and reaping the reward of appreciation that comes with that. Beer-making is just an extension of this for him, and nothing makes him happier than seeing people enjoying Napier ales, lagers and winter stouts. He and his two friends and business partners, Craigan and Andrew, conjured up the idea for setting up a micro-brewery in 2007 - appropriately while drinking some beers together on a boy’s night at the local pub in Napier. While Mark has since moved to Greyton, the brewery head quarters are still in Napier, and when we visited, the beer master Richard gave us a tour and a taste.

Mashing and sparging


The full beer-making process takes almost three weeks per batch – from cooking the malt and barley to release the sugars, to fermenting the concoction and then cooling, settling and filtering the beer. Napier Brewery specialises in English style malts, the main ingredient of which is pale malt. Crystal malt, with its sweet toffee-like flavours, is also used, as is chocolate malt - this is brewed to make a winter stout, rich with caramel and vanilla undertones.


The process begins by gently grinding the malts so that the grain breaks open enough to allow the sugars to escape more easily later in the process. This is then placed in a copper tank, known as the mash tun, with hot water and crushed again. The next stage is called sparging and entails the separation of the sugary suspension from the grains through a filtering process which produces a sweet liquid called wort. The hops is then added and the mixture is boiled for just over an hour before being cooled and fermented. A cloudy brew is the result of these processes, and the final step entails filtering this mixture again to produce a fine ale or lager.

From whim to winner


What started on the whim of three friends has developed over the last few years into a nice little business. The micro-brewery trade is slowly picking up and with festivals like We Love Real Beer finding huge popularity, Napier Brewery envisions this will grow from strength to strength. “People love beer”, says Mark. “It’s been around for thousands of years. Beer is food.”

by Alishia Gardner  |   07 June 2017 08:52 AM   |   0 replies

My baby's father left me and our baby four months ago and life was never the same since. I love my boyfriend so very much and I didn't imagine having a life without him and even our son growing up with out seeing his dad every day hurt me so much. I found out that my boyfriend was seeing another woman not far away from my home and that's the reason he left me and the baby but I loved my baby's father so much that I wasn't willing to loose him to another woman and let our son grow up without a father. I had to do anything as a woman and a mother who loves her family to bring my man back. I contacted Dr Mojo because he had helped one of my friends to bring back her husband and they now happy. I told Dr Mojo to cast a love and binding spell for me and bring back my man because I still loved him and missed him so much and Dr Mojo agreed and did the spell for me and in 1day of the spell my boyfriend called me and cried on the phone begging me if he could come and see me and his son and told me how his sorry for everything and missed me and our baby and promised never to cheat on me again and will always love me. Now we are back together as a family with my man and he shows so much love to Me and our son. I can't Thank u enough Dr Mojo your spells really work.

After being in relationship with Wilson for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don't believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called Dr Zuma zuk and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: or call him +2349055637784 you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or anything. CONTACT HIM NOW FOR SOLUTION TO ALL YOUR PROBLEMS'
