Wine place buys beer place

Hmm. A commercial amalgamation of two of my favourite Agulhas brands? Sounds perfect.

News finally came out this week that Black Oystercatcher Wines has bought up local craft brewing outfit Fraser’s Folly.

The brewhouse will now move to the Black Oystercatcher Wine Farm, where founder and brewmaster Fraser Crighton will continue to make and represent the beer.

We need to take a Sho’t… er… Right and get down to the new, improved Black Oystercatcher before the summer season starts (and then possibly when the summer season starts as well). The old cow sheds have been replaced by a spectacular new building with more light, more capacity and more space.



Although I’m a little disappointed that we can’t make it for the Elim wine festival this weekend, I’m assured that it’ll still be there next time we go down.

Can’t wait…
