A romantic historical tale from the early 1800’s tells of a wooden cargo sail ship under the command of a Captain Jeffreys. During one of his trading expeditions down the East Coast of Africa an epidemic of scurvy broke out aboard his ship. He was forced to land his ship on the local beach. Captain Jeffreys and a handful of survivors made it safely to land. The ship was battered to pieces on the rocks during storms and the last remains of that wooden ship was a wooden banister that still exists today. It is claimed that Jeffreys Bay was named after Captain Jeffreys.
This beer is brewed to honour the ships Captains, Sailors and Settlers that braved the stormy Atlantic and Indian oceans and sailed from Europe to settle in South Africa.
