About Us

The WortHog Brewers (Worties) is a South African based beer brewing club dedicated to the art and science of making good beer.

We hold regular meetings within Gauteng with our 5 chapters.

We have a long history of making tremendous beer, and developing many great new home brewers.

Upcoming Events

Our Chapters

Each chapter hosts 6 meetings per year with various topics and speakers. At each meeting, members can bring their brews and get feedback. The tasting scores count towards the “brewer of the year”.


Meet at Hogshead Douglasdale on the first Wednesday
of every second odd month.


East Rand

Meet at Werner’s Bistro (Bedfordview) on the last Thursday
of every second odd month.



Meet at Copperlake Brewery’s Taproom (Lanseria) for brew days from time to time.



Meet at Capital Craft on the first Thursday
of every second even month.



Currently this chapter isn’t meeting regularly – if you’d like to help expand it, get in touch!
