Castle Free is South Africa’s first home-grown 0.0% alcohol free beer. It is a crisp, refreshing non-alcoholic beer that is perfectly balanced and expertly brewed – with the same quality Castle home-grown ingredients to give you the taste of beer without any next day regrets.
There’s a time and a place for all beer, and Castle Free lives in the occasion where pacing is important. A night out shouldn’t be a sprint to the finish line, but should be enjoyed with the people that are as #FreeToBe as you are.
We take the same local ingredients
as Castle Lager: water, barley
malt and hops.
Our barley malt is finely milled to extract
that distinctive malty character.
We boil and brew our beer
using local hops and maize
for that home-grown taste.
After a cooling process, we ferment
our beer using our own SAB yeast.
We remove the alcohol using a
combination of natural processes
including: centrifugal force and
Our beer is filtered to give you that
brilliant golden colour.
Our beer is blended to achieve that
authentic beer taste: slightly malty
and very slightly fruity with a
genuine hop aroma.
Castle Free, South Africa’s first
home-grown 0.0% alcohol beer is
packaged and ready for you
to practice pacing.
We celebrate the coming together of two of South Africa's most exciting teams. We're proud to announce Castle Free as the proud new sponsor of the Blitzboks – the Springboks Sevens, the Springbok Women’s Sevens and the SA Rugby Sevens Academy teams.
The sponsorship continues a long-standing relationship between the rugby body and SA Breweries and it comes just at the right time for the thriving sevens programmes.
Castle Free is a product that represents a new era in our own brewing standards while at the same time offering the fans the opportunity to make the kind of smart choices off the field as their favourite players do on it.
Watch as coach Paul Delport and his team searches far and wide across the expanse of Mzansi, unearthing new talent, and moulding them into try-scoring machines worthy of the Blitzbok jersey. Young talent & athletes from various sporting codes will be put through a gruelling two week process in the hopes of emerging as contracted, professional 7’s players. The journey will test and take the players close to breaking point and, even if they don’t make it all the way, they will be known as the Becoming Imbokodo class of 2019.
