The Kennel Brewery is a off-consumption nano brewery in Durbanville focusing on simple,  delicious and unpretentious beers.


When the time came to brand the best of the brews, he could think of no better tribute than to name it after man’s most loyal and amenable friend. Paul’s love for dogs, beer and his home town go hand in hand.

Born in 2014 (and FIIIIIIIIIIIIIIINALLY licensed in 2017), The Kennel Brewery brews big beers (660ml ) in small batches.  The ALEsation and St BEERnard are brewed all year round, while the PORTER collie and MALTYEAST poodle are seasonal delicacies.

The brewing bug bit brewer/owner Paul Freysen in 2012. He acquired a basic brewing kit, brewed a batch and continued doing so with the aim of always bettering his previous attempt.

Over  years and countless batches, he honed and tested his recipes and methods to the delight of his family and friends. Some always gave their most honest opinions, while others were overly complimentary of his brews in hopes of securing more of it. After all, a friend sincere is a friend who’s dear, but a friend with beer is better.
