As an Australian, we love our beer :) Their craft beer is fantastic, I particularly liked their IPA and the ciders. Food was really good as well, and the position looking into the square is geat. But I'd go there for the drinks any day.

Great weekend shared with friends at this brewery, where the girls consumed plenty of th pink brew and the guys all the other varieties of brew available. The food is good, if a little average, and liked the platters as a taster between the chat and laughter. Stunning situated on the square and walking distance for the girls to shop!

Situated on the square its great to sit here and watch people go by. The food is nice, if a little average and you can only purchase craft beer (no SAB) so if you like Clarens Brewery beer you will enjoy it here.

We visited Clarens Brewery on our way to Golden Gate NP. To begin with the experience was good. The waiting staff were friendly and helpful. The service was a little slow, especially considering that it wasn’t busy, but we were not in a major rush so it was ok. We ordered drinks and food and generally enjoyed our time soaking... More

We had lunch over the June 16 long weekend, when Clarens was packed. The lunch order took a while due to the above, which is to be expected, but other than that, nothing but good quality beer, service and food. A great way to spend a lazy afternoon in the Clarens sunshine.

Must visit this when in Clarens! Can do a tasting (some beers were a bit gross, others especially the ciders were yum) and then order yourself a cider with a nice platter and enjoy!

A group of friends and I stopped at the Clarens Brewery on Friday 6th June for lunch. The taster session was good and the ciders top notch. The warm combo platter was great value for money but the thing that made the whole experience fantastic was the staff. Aden in particular was hilarious as well as being very knowledgeable on... More
