Our beers are reliable, consistent and the brewery is based in the legendary Muizenberg area. We’re also proudly South African – so of course choosing a name had to reflect all of this.
What else in Cape Town is 100% reliable? The Noon Guns on Signal Hill. One of only two working Noon Guns in the world.
The Noon Guns on Signal Hill are symbols of strength, reliability, and endurance. An inspiring legacy to behold and a truly outstanding way to hear that it is finally lunchtime (a.k.a Beer Time).
Since 1806, these two trusty keepers of time (18-pounder smooth bore muzzle loaders), have survived various foreign occupations, stood strong through wars, and have been hauled from the Castle of Good Hope to Signal Hill.
However, the Noon Guns refuse to be left in the past with other outdated antiques, currently being fired electronically from the South African Astronomical Observatory. As accurate as the atomic clock that keeps them updated, these Noon Guns fire reliable at exactly 12pm every day. Which is also a respectable time to open your first Noon Gun beer and salute these two legends that overlook Cape Town. Every time you hear the Noon Guns’ BOOM! you’re allowed to think about a crisp, delicious Lager, Weiss, Pilsner, Light Lager and Session IPA. And all of these are available – right here – at the Noon Gun Brewery.
