Malcolm du Toit - Frigid Isles Master Brewer

Somebody once said that if you enjoy your job you will never have to work a day in your life as your work is your hobby. Malcolm is one such person. He has been brewing beer for close on 40 years.  A professional brewer he joined SAB after university as a pupil brewer and learned his trade brewing mainstream brands for the South African market. He is also a certified taster and spent many years on the national panel assessing beer quality in trade.

Since retirement he has spent his time consulting to micro and craft brewers and teaching brewing to young brewers who wish to further their careers and learn their trade.

Malcolm holds a post grad degree in brewing from Heriot Watt University as well as a Master Brewer qualification from the Institute of Brewing and Distilling in London. He is passionate about beer and is in the process of building his own brewery at home where he will be able to brew different styles and further enjoy his hobby.

He has had a lifelong passion for wildlife too, so what better way is there than to combine two passions by being the master brewer for FRIGID ISLES BREWING!
