The Dog and Fig Brewery
The brewery members all have a scientific background, and therefore recognize the art, but also the precision of the brewing method.
The brewery is located just outside Parys in the picturesque Vredefort Dome.
This tranquil setting expresses itself in the beer-brewing process. The name comes from student days where guys were ‘Dogs’ and girls were ‘Vye’. ‘Dog’ also derives from an association with the African wild dog – these are social, tenacious animals, focussed on their target and driven to get their prey.
We are constantly experimenting with new styles of beer, and are always open to the custom-brewing of specific types of beers on request. This led to the creation of our buchu beer, bringing a typically African flair to our beer range.
The brewery members all have a scientific background, and therefore appreciate the art but also the precision of the brewing process. Thus, we focus on beer quality and consistency, while trying to maintain our unique edge.
