Our History

history

Sir Thomas Brewing Co. was founded in 2013 by long-time friends, Braam Rademeyer and Marius Malan.
It began as an epiphany during a surf session in the seawaters of Pringle Bay, and soon after what started out as an avocation developed into a profession and full time craft brewery.

As the twosome’s idea originated in the small holiday town of Pringle Bay, it was only fitting to name their beer venture after the father of Pringle Bay, Royal Navy Commander-in –chief of the British navy, Sir Thomas Pringle.
