Great brews, and atmosphere. Clarens Red has to be one of the top craft beers I've tasted recently. A must do when in Clarens.

The brewery on the main street is a good choice for a relaxing lunch or afternoon. Set aside an hour or more for craft beer or cider tasting (free) before you decide on what to drink. If you are hungry - the combo platter is delicious! A table on the side walk offers interesting people-watching opportunities. The service was a... More

After our long drive to Clarens we stopped over at the brewery for refreshments and bite to eat. For starters we were offered their various brews for tasting. I liked the cherry and pineapple brew. The pineapple brew packs a mean punch! LOL! I quite enjoyed their cherry fruit juice, absolutely must order. The food is good. I had the... More

Microbrewery in the middle of Clarens with good marketing. Interesting as a tourist attraction. It would be worthwhile to do some more development to improve the product.

it was a surprise to see this brewery in the heart of Clarens. The beer and ciders was very good as well as the food. The service is also excellent.

The beer is outstanding, especially the IPA, a really crisp, flavoursome and together brew. Young man serving was a bit too cool for school, and couldn't sell us any crisps. No great grumble, I just like a few nibbles with ale, however classy the brew.

If there is one reason to go to Clarens it is the brewery. I found the art in the town generally not to my liking and the shops expensive for things that I can find at home at half the price but the brewery was one of the highlights to my trip. Fantastic beers, knowledgeable staff, great pub food an... More
