The Green Craft Bar, located at the Benoni Country Club is a relaxed spot for residents to enjoy a craft beer and socialize.
What was initially a vacant roof turned into the area's first contemporary craft bar built out of a 40ft shipping container which all the Greens are based on.
You won’t find any commercial brands at their bars but rather a great range of SA products, only craft beer, ciders, small batch spirits, a huge range of gins and a small, ever changing food menu.
The bar is one of 20 finalists in the Sage Small Business Awards with 702 .
Stephen Grootes, standing in for Xolani Gwala, spoke to Dex Manday, founder of the bar.
