The Bootlegger - Situated in the Garden Route, The Bootlegger is a homebrew supply shop selling DIY beer, cider, wine and ginger beer kits.

Welcome to The Bootlegger. We are a homebrew supplies shop based in Wilderness, in the beautiful Garden Route. If you like craft beer and would like to make your own this is the place for you! It’s easy and everyone can do it. If beer isn’t your drink of choice, we also stock everything you need to make your own wine, cider and ginger beers. Check out our website to see our range of Mangrove Jacks, Black Rock and Coopers kits. We also sell all the ingredients and equipment you need to do your first brew and hopefully many to come after that. We also stock starter kits – 1 box that includes everything you need to do your first one (Except the bottles and we can help with that too). For the more serious and experienced brewers we also stock several yeasts, additives, and more. We also distribute “The Grainfather” all in one grain brewing system, as well as its accessories and ingredient kits.

[04/10/20]   Good Day All

Yes, brewing beer is essential to all of us, but unfortunately, not included on the official list. Thus, we are not allowed to operate during the lockdown.
