Discover the passion that is Craft Beer
Jacques van Zyl travels – not to places so much as into things. Once he’s enchanted, he cannot stop. He makes his inquiries with a childlike insistence on detail and a relentless demand to experience everything. What he encounters, he collects.
He twice had to move house to accommodate a collection – once of rare orchids, once of towering speakers he had designed. He’s a gourmet, a connoisseur of wine and beer, a maker of words and an audiophile. He doesn’t understand money. Instead, he drinks for a living. He maintains a blog, No Small Beer, and is the winner of the 2014FWV SA Wine Writers’ Long Form Award.
