Zebonkey Brewery is one of the breweries who will be at Stellenbosch Craft Beer Festival this coming weekend. I recently had a chat to the guys involved in this brewery, this is what they had to say:
Where does your name come from?
Zebonkey is the combination between a zebra and a donkey. This animal really exists and is called a “Zebresel” in German. We liked it so much that we decided to call our beers Zebonkey (ZEBra dONKEY).
This goes hand-in-hand with the fact that we are an owner run micro-brewery. Mignonne, South African born and bred is the zebra and Jan, our brewer- the donkey, is a genuine German (even Bavarian born).
Therefore you can see Zebonkey as a perfect joint venture between South Africa and Germany.
