A day trip to Black Horse Brewery
Great news, drinkers: Joburg craft-beer revolution shows no sign of slowing down. Just an hour’s drive from Joburg, Black Horse Brewery is a boundary-pushing brewery that’s brewing up some killer facilities as well. Perfectly positioned on a scenic road leading to the edge of the Magalies River in Magaliesburg, Black Horse Brewery is part of the Black Horse Estate and is co-located with a craft distillery and restaurant and offers accommodation and conference facilities. The brewery boasts a mash/lauter tun, a boil kettle and six 400-litre fermenters. Dig into one of the bucket-list burgers that are towering with toppings and wash it down with suds in the form of five tasters, pints, ‘tiny’ 300ml pints or two-litre ‘growlers’.

A power lunch at Truffles on the Park
Need a discreet destination to eat while you discuss a deal? Looking to butter up your boss or impress a client? When there’s a business meeting on the menu, book a table at Truffles on the Park, a brand-new bistro in the popular Mushroom Farm Park. A mere stroll away from the Johannesburg Stock Exchange and banking district, upon stepping inside you’re greeted by the outside, with glazing apertures opening to reveal vistas across the park. But one can’t help but be drawn back inside by the abundance of botanical elements. The menu features an extensive selection of artisanal small plates, from dukkah-rubbed lamb cutlets and miso-glazed short rib to Atlantic salmon and charred octopus. To drink, you can choose between over 40 clear spirits to accent the floral notes of rose, elderflower, lavender, hibiscus and violet.
