First Light Golden Ale | Devil's Peak Brewing Company

First Light Golden Ale

First Light Golden Ale is our take on an approachable, easy drinking session ale – the perfect beer companion for any occasion. Once you’ve had one, you’ll be hooked.

We named it First Light because the slopes of Devil’s Peak – being to the east of the Cape Town city bowl – are the first to receive the sun’s golden light in the morning.

If you’re nervous about drinking craft ales, First Light Golden Ale is a great introduction. It’s what we like call our gateway beer because of its light, easy drinking nature. If you’re into lagers, this is the closest thing we currently offer.
