LCE4The bird depicted in the Sabie Brewing Company logo is the Long-crested Eagle.

The remarkably long, feathered crest is this unmistakeable bird of prey’s most striking feature. It is a relatively small eagle with dark brown to black plumage and white feathered legs. In flight, patches of white are conspicuous on the broad, rounded wings.

The Long-crested Eagle is common in Sabie and can often be seen flying over the brewery or perched on a pine tree, street light or telephone pole keeping an eagle-eye out for a tasty mouse.

Look out for the Long-crested Eagle on top of the brewery! It replaced the original weather vane (a chicken) on the Glynn house after the renovations were done to the building.
