Triggerfish Brewing is a Somerset West based craft brewery focusing on brewing a wide range of exceptional beers. Our product range consists of 9 staple beers and a 16 seasonal and one off “wild” beers to date. “Wild” beers refer to beers with flavours that most local beer drinkers have never experienced. We’re passionate about local ingredients and are constantly working on increasing the local content of some of our beers to create some distinct local styles that could be widely recognized if successful. Being in the heart of the wine region we’re barrel ageing and increasingly brew beer/wine hybrids.
Triggerfish grew out of a passion for beer and home brewing as a hobby. We started brewing in 2007 and commercialized our hobby in November 2010. The brewery has had healthy growth since the start and now employs 9 full time staff. We are local by choice and choose to share our beer with enthusiastic beer lovers at the brewery’s taproom. We have a very limited distribution to a couple of Cape Town outlets. Besides beer the taproom serves a seasonal menu and some fine local wines and artisanal schnapps. Triggerfish is open for tastings and beer sales Monday to Saturday and offers brewery tours by appointment. Our Mission is to brew excellent beers catering to a wide variety of tastes. Including, but not limited to, beer geeks, beer snobs and hop heads.
