The Swakopmund Brewing Company is the place where our highly skilled, German trained brewers’ creativity unleashed. But with this creative passion comes a serious focus on making exceptional quality craft beers inspired by the age-old brewing traditions of the Reinheitsgebot.
The Swakopmund Brewing Company’s roots are based at the historic site of the Strand Hotel in the town of Swakopmund. This is where the brewery known as Hansa Brewery was located, which was part of Namibia Breweries Limited. It all started in 1920, when two friends, Hermann Ohlthaver and Carl List, consolidated four Namibian Breweries to brew beer especially for our hot Namibian climate in NBL.
