Craft Beer Tasting Notes

This Month's Mixed Case - December - A Toast To The Festive Season

We’d like to take a break from our regular programming to bring you this important message:

The holiday season is upon us and in the spirit of giving, we’d like to give you some great advice. December shopping can be a pain and if you’re guy, you’ve inevitably left it to the last possible second. That usually means a last-minute dash to your nearest mall which is going to packed with frantic shoppers and droves the ever-annoying Slow Mall Walkers of South Africa club members.

And just like that 2019 has come to end! Happy holidays from all of us at League of Beers! It’s been an absolutely cracking year and it’s all thanks to you and your continued support. We can’t wait to see what next year holds, and we can’t wait to show you the epic selection of beers that we have lined up. Until next year, cheers!
