Woodstock Brewery's Californicator is a must-buy. At around R24, this American IPA is one of the best value craft beers around, and it is a must if you love a hoppy beer.
Reader Rating: (3 Rates)8.1

Based in the heart of Woodstock Cape Town, the aptly named Woodstock Brewery has four beers in its line-up. The Californicator is a rather new sight on the shelves of Jozi's craft beer merchants and in the four weeks since I first bought it, it has been a regular item on my shopping list.

As an American IPA, the Californicator lives up to its taste profile and is a must for hop-heads.  Another reason why the Californicator has been a regular on my shopping list is because it is one of the cheapest craft beers on the market. At R24 from my local craft beer merchant this beer is the best value for money at the moment... certainly if you appreciate a hoppy ale. You can also get a case online from Norman Goodfellows. Having said that, the Californicator does not leave a lingering bitterness, so its easy to have a few around the fire.

It would seem Cape Town delivered another winner with this craft beer, I look forward to tasting the others in the Woodstock Brewery line-up.
