Drifter Brewing Company



In 2014, circumstance and luck brought Nick to his girlfriend Anna's home state of Oregon, where he spent five months learning and loving to brew. As he and Anna started thinking about their next journey he knew he was destined to open a brewery, and what better place than in Cape Town, South Africa where the craft beer scene is exploding at the moment.
The name Drifter came from the 40' sailing yacht that Nick's parents designed and built in their backyard in the late '70s. They sailed around the world on Drifter for almost 10 years. Though the boat is no longer in the family's ownership, Drifter is still around and resides in Gordon's Bay, South Africa.
Drifter symbolises adventurecreativity and craftsmanship which is what we strive for in our beers.
