EXTRA COLD

DRAUGHT

The next time you’re out on the town, be on the lookout for our frozen-over Castle Lite draught taps. Clad in Extra Cold ice and poured at sub-zero degrees into 300ml and 500ml drought glasses, we assure you there’s no colder beer in the house. Our draught is drawn from the keg straight to our signature branded glass, allowing you to Unlock Extra Cold Refreshment with a smooth, crisp and great tasting beer.

THE EXTRA COLD

BREWING PROCESS

LAGERED AT -2.5°

STAGE 1

MALTING

First, our barley seeds are soaked in water for two days to sprout. Cool moist air is then fanned through the soaked barley for a few more days allowing the seeds to grow and for the starches to turn into sugar. On day five, more air is fanned through the soaked grains leaving them dry, coloured and flavoured. This part of the process also turns these grains into malt. The malt is then left to cool down before making its way to the brewery.

STAGE 2

MASHING

The rested malt grains are milled and added to a heated brewing liquor to make mash. This mash then goes into a lauter tun, which basically works like a sieve: it separates the rich fermentable liquid (known as wort) from the spent grains. The wort is heated in a kettle and hops are added. Hops are a key ingredient because they give our beers their bitterness, flavour and aroma. Thereafter, the wort is ready to be transferred from the ferment cellars into a fermentation vessel.

STAGE 3

FERMENTATION

Yeast is added to the cooled wort, allowing it to perform its magic and transform the mixture into the flavours that you find in our beer. Then, the yeast is removed, and our beer is moved to an Extra Cold -2.5 °C cellar where it’s left to lock in that Extra Cold refreshing taste. Our unique temperature ensures that our beer always retains its full, refreshing taste and clear colour. The beer is then passed through a special filter, almost ready to be served.

STAGE 4

READY
TO BE ENJOYED

With the brewing process complete, our Extra Cold beer is bottled/canned and distributed to various outlets. It’s now finally ready to make its way into the Sub-Zero Fridge at your local bottle store
or favourite hangout spot.

THE ORIGINAL CASTLE LITE
WITH A DASH OF LIME

Let us introduce you to a new member to the Castle Lite Extra Cold family – Castle Lite Lime. So, why lime? We’re all about innovation, always looking to take the extra cold experience to the next level so we added a dash of lime to South Africa’s coldest beer. It’s still your favourite beer – smooth, crisp and extra cold, just with a dash of lime, adding an all-new icy-fresh extra cold refreshment experience.

It’s the same green bottle with our signature 2-stage cold indicator, grip and ice-proof label. The only difference is that zesty lime “flava” and the slick label design.

Look out for Castle Lite Lime in a liquor store near you, or ask the barman at your favourite hangout for an Extra Cold Castle Lite Lime.
