Pale Ale: Judged the Read more [...]
Award-winning real beers, created by okes with a real passion for craft.
On Heritage Day, a few years ago, over a braai and a home brewed beer from the cooler box, the idea was hatched for a Real Beer Brewery: A brewery where we will not compromise on Quality or Taste. A man with a love for brewing, and a man with the love of beer came together and said “yes” to produce Real Beer. And so it was – Two Okes Brewery born.
Fast forward to now, we hope that you when you sip a Two Okes Real Beer, you will taste the difference, see the quality and smell the love that went into every glass.
We have gained excellent market growth and pride ourselves on producing top-quality, Gauteng-local “Real Beer” – this means that we do not use adjuncts such as Glucose, Corn Syrup, Ccolorants, Preservatives or Flavourants in our beer. Our beer is produced purely with Water, Hops, Barley and Yeast according to our in-house recipes – thus ensuring a refined and flavorsome product.
Two Okes has bagged a few awards already –
April 2016: At SA On Tap Festival at Montecasino, a panel of internationally recognized beer judges (BJCP judges) awarded us 1st Place (Best Beer At Show) for our Irish Ale.
Feb 2016: A panel of independent, internationally recognised BJCP judges awarded us 1st Place “Best In Show” award for our Imperial Stout at the Clarens Beer Festival.
June 2015: Two Okes was the winner of Capital Craft’s Best Newcomer Award.
We were also voted onto the top list of League Of Beers People’s Choice awards in 2015 and 2016 alike.
We have 6 standard beers in our range, and then regularly produce limited edition beers for functions and events.
Two Okes Irish Ale is an Irish Red Ale that was designed for One Okes First Lady. She complained that most beers are too bitter and too fizzy. Numerous tests brews later we cracked the nod and knew we have a Real Beer that will not only sit well with the Ladies but also connect with Beer drinkers that wants an easy drinking session beer. Caramel aftertaste, low carbonation and 4.5 % ABV it calls for another.
Two Okes Stout is a Dark Stout aimed at showing of how enjoyable Stout can be! This not a Dry Stout or a Milk Stout but somewhere in between, it comes with a good amount of coffee flavour with a little bit of chocolate at the end. This beer can be enjoyed on a hot or cold day, and is just great with breakfast. Good dark and round body with a good 6 % ABV.
Two Okes South African Pale Ale takes the best of locally produced Hops with locally grown Malted Barley to bring you English Pale Ale (a very hoppy – bitter beer) styled Real Beer that is meant to be enjoyed as much as the first time hoppy beer drinker or the Real Hophead that want to take a break from the mundane. The rolling hop additions should bring lots of Citrus, Fruity notes or some Pine and a 5% ABV.
