Metal Lane is a small brewery located in Kloof Street, Cape Town. It is constantly working on traditional and non-traditional styles of beer and brewing techniques, and strives to create the best possible tasting craft beer.
Talisman is a local fable about the infamous, predominant, dry south-easterly wind that howls along the Cape Peninsula coastline from spring to late summer. For a local fisherman "blind Jack", this Cape Doctor or "South Easterly" wind is his talisman. Fable has it, he safely navigated his passage across the bay of Hout Bay in the notorious howling gale-force wind storm of 1941 with the relentless Cape Doctor churning up the seas along his treacherous coastline.
A traditional Weiss
Suave, self-assured Weissbier with a glint of rapscallion
An elegant beer that slows down time for quiet contemplation around the drawing board as you plot your light plan to success. Medium bitterness with biscuit, honey and roasted flavours, followed by citrus and fruity hop aromas. Cascade and Centennial are the main hops used in this brew, with a touch of Citra.
La Chouffe is an unfiltered blonde beer, which is fermented twice, once in the keg and again in the bottle. Pleasantly fruity, and spiced with coriander, it has a light hop taste. Because it is unfiltered, some of the yeast will settle at the bottom during storage. Pour gently to avoid pouring the yeast out - serve separately if desired.
Hazy golden colour
Thick, white, frothy head
Strong yeasty smell, with notes of spice, cloves and citrus
