ABRU craft brewery is one of the newest divisions of The Aleit Group, and operates from the company’s headquarters on Lourensford Wine Estate, with a fully equipped taproom. Okay, we know what you might be thinking – starting a beer brewery on one of the most renowned wine estates in the country – crazy right? Crazy-courageous yeah! Listen, we are nothing if not paradoxical…that’s right paradoxical. So think “Central Perk” where friends get together, meets “Cheers” where everybody knows your name. That’s ABRU’s vibe. This microbrewery has a very hands-on approach, and our artisan beers are as craft as it gets. You can literally see our brewers at work in their open-plan brewery & taproom…And if you sit there long enough, you might just walk away having a new brew named after you. The beers are sold at the ABRU taproom and every weekend at the Lourensford Market

Corlie’s Italian is our local market Italian food stall. Corlie & Attie serve fresh pasta, gnocchi and ravioli dishes, piadini with fillings from fillet steak to vegetarian and bottled pasta sauces and pestos. Corlie grew up watching her mother cook and helping her in the kitchen. Later on in life she developed a great love for Italian food and after an initial trial run to sell dried pasta at another market she realised that cooked fresh pasta will be the way forward. And as for Attie, it also started in his mother's kitchen and then Corlie came along and inspired him with her love for Italian food. It all developed from there. They were also featured in the tv series Brood and Botter in the first two episodes.
