We only do tours for groups that are PRE-BOOKED. Our Pub only opens at 4pm. The Zululand Brewery is a South African beer company founded in 1997 by the Chennells family. Based out of the old shed behind the George Hotel in Eshowe, Zululand where its beers are available on tap at the hotels bar called The Pablo Esco Bar. Zululand covers an area of about 30 000km2 on the east coast of South Africa stretching from the Tugela River in the south to the Pongola river in the north. After the Anglo-Zulu War of 1879 Eshowe was established as the capital of Zululand and the towns original water supply was on main street where the brewery and hotel are based today. The brewery is the smallest on the Kwa-Zulu Natal Brew Route.

Had a lovely time at Zululand Brewery. Loved the beer and had great conversation with the bartender and local patrons. Views of the forest were fantastic.

Bar only open for. Short time 4pm -10. Beer was on tap pretty synthetic and flat. It can hardly be called a brewery, was a few metal bins in a greenhouse.

Neither the brewery nor operating times were advertised at the hotel. Beer only for sale on tap, was hot and terrible. Very slow service. Not recommended at all.

Drove for an hour to get here. Zulu blonde beer which we'd read about was out of stock. Ordered the only alternative: Ninja Inja: was flat and room temp?
