It is clear that there is more to the project than simply providing improved public infrastructure and giving us better access to jobs. The Corridors of Freedom project is about narrowing spacial distances not only physically, through rapid transportation, but transcendentally, in the minds of residents granted new ownership over previously inaccessible areas of the city. Admittedly, beer has historically had a divisive role to play in South African culture. The kind of beer you drank, or were allowed to drink, defined you. Beer was once a powerful and destructive agent of social control, instrumental in the very physical, spatial control systems implemented by the Apartheid government. The Brew Works project seeks to subvert these systems; to present beer as an instrument for the construction of our own future, our own spatial and cultural identities, not ones dictated to us. Ownership of the brewery space is extended, through its scripting as a co-operative facility, to local entrepreneurs from both nearby Soweto and the far reaches of the city. It is conceived of as a space where brewing expertise, cultural diversity, and personal experience can be shared among brewers, developing more robust skills, inventive new recipes and exciting stylistic hybrids.
