Take A Stroll Down Fransen Street

At Fransen Street, experimentation is our philosophy and brought to life by some unconventional master brewers. We first opened in 1998 as a development brewery to test new raw materials and produce small-scale special interest beers. Our innovation, however, was ahead of the curve.  

With the explosion of the speciality beer revolution, the brewery was redeveloped in 2012 and our brew masters were once again given free reign to experiment. Using traditional brewing methods, their spirited imaginations yielded three exceptional beers, backed by years of experience, quality and consistency, and the 3 Fransen Street variants were born.

Meticulously batch-brewed, our Cream Ale, Irish Red Ale and Krystal Weiss are more than just a taste odyssey, they also encourage a bit of adventure, as they’re only available on tap at select locations, each one as unique as our beers. So get out and experience, taste and enjoy something new, courtesy of 3 Fransen Street.


Cream Ale

Rich, creamy, toffee-malty goodness with a fine flourish of vanilla makes for a taste phenomenon you won’t easily forget. Our Cream Ale is different to anything you’ve ever tried and may, in fact, replace previously sworn allegiances.

Irish Red Ale

Unlike other dark beers, our Red Ale packs a flavour punch without compromising on refreshment. Roasted malts give a creamy, caramel richness, while a moderate addition of hops keeps it crisp and original.

Krystal Weiss

You don’t need to you know your esters from your phenols to enjoy our invigorating Weiss. This traditional wheat beer, with light banana and clove character, makes for slow and surprisingly easy drinking on a hot South African day.
