We dropped in to try their craft beers since it was on the way to our next event for the day. Very friendly staff; nice selection of very creative beers. Note: The brewery is in an industrial area, so you have to keep a sharp eye out for it, but GPS will locate it just fine.

Impressed
Jun 2019
It has been a while since I last visited the brewery and I was very impressed to see how they have grown. The tasting room has expanded to now include more seating inside as well as a small garden area, so a nice option to visit during summer or winter. The brewery now has a food truck and a big screen where they show certain sporting events. The garden outside has lawns where the kids can play safely and within view of the main seating area which means parents can also comfortably enjoy everything the Berg River Brewery has to offer. The entire group decided to do the full tasting which consisted of a Lager, Blonde Ale, Kristal Weiss, Pale Ale, Saison and Heller Bok. I really enjoyed the Saison and Pale Ale and ended up buying some Pale Ale to take home. While I was waiting for my friends to arrive I had a chat with one of the staff members. He was really passionate about the brewery and gave me a lot of background which I think makes you appreciate the beers even more. I am definitely making a plan to visit them in the summer again and maybe grab something to eat while enjoying their tasty beers.

Small group beer tasting fest
May 2018 • Friends
5 of us took a tour of the Brewery on a chilly Friday morning 11 May. but were warmed by a cozy fire. Were taken on a comprehensive tour of the brewery and were thoroughly educated on how to make craft beer (easy peasy...). Had the tasting trays and each had different favourites but all were very palatable. We bought a variety to go which only lasted for half of the rest of the weekend. A definite must visit if in the Paarl / Wellington area.

Beer variety
Jan 2018 • Friends
This was a most interesing and enjoyable visit. While visiting another restuarant, where we were drinking Bergrivier beers, enthusiastic brewery staff invited us to visit for a tasting.
Have an interesting variety of beers from Weiss Beer, Larger, Blond Ale, Pale Ale and Stout. I personally enjoyed the Pale Ale.
Not a place to go with wifes/partners who do not drink, but my son-in-law and I thoroughly enjoyed the tasting.
Smalk tuck shop provides take-away type meals. (Cannot comment on these as we had just eaten at another place)

Perfect Beer!!!
Dec 2017 • Solo
Although humble in their exposure and advertising, Berg River Brewery's beers are crafted by one of the most experienced and accomplished brewers in the world.
A wide variety are available on tap as well as per bottle and tastings are available.
Outstanding beers are their award winning Bock beer (9.5% abv) and Helles Lager. And not far behind are their Indian Pale Ale and Weis beers.
Definitely a place to go back to.

Paarl Beer Tasting
Oct 2017 • Friends
I am not a beer drinker but my wife likes her beer. The staff are very friendly and we opted for a tasting of all the beers. My favorite was the Weiss and my wife liked the Helles Lager as well as the Weiss. The other beers were not to our taste. Another problem was that the tasters were not cold.

Super Cool Beer People
Dec 2016 • Friends
It's just an absolute treat having a brewery down the road. It's even better when the Beer is superb, as are the owners / management of this fine establishment.

Berg River Brewery has grown in leaps and bounds over the reasonably short period it has been around and continues to pleasantly surprise.

You must go. Chilled out and enough of a range to suit any one of your beer palates.

Tasting session
Nov 2016 • Couples
After sampling the beer at our B&B accommodation, and loving it, we headed for Berg River Brewery. A very warm greeting and informative tasting session was held just for us in the brilliantly decorated tap room area of the brewery. We got to sample the four main brews plus a couple of the seasonal specials. The staff member conducting the tasting was informative and offered background regarding each brew, the type of hops and the rationale behind each different style of beer. We left with a take-away selection having enjoyed an informal, relaxed tasting of a fantastic product. For the more personal touch forget the bigger brewers at more tourist orientated locations in the area and come here instead.
A great venue with great beer and welcoming staff.

Craft Perfected

We found this place by complete accident one day while driving by and decided to check it out. It looks like a brewery from the outside, but we were pleased to discover that it is also open to the locals. Their tasting room is small and homely and the vibe is incredible. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable and they also offer food. We were treated to an explanation of the beers from the brewer himself, and got to enjoy all of them. My favourite was called the Mermaid, which had a lovely fruity taste and my husbands was the Weiss, which is also light in alcohol. They are hosting an Octoberfest soon, and have brewed a special beer just for the occasion. We'll definitely be there.
