A fantastic brewery set at great altitude. The craft beer tastings were awesome and really inexpensive - just R55. The setting is stunning, the brew pub is beautiful and I loved the brewery dogs sitting with us during the tasting. Great service and good knowledge from our barman. Highly recommended.

At the top of the wonderful Long Tom pass (2000m above sea level) you’ll find this little gem of a brewery. The team have crafted a space for beer and food lovers to gather and plan the next part of their journey over some wonderful drinks. We had a wonderful tasting of 9 beers and a huge hamburger and really wished we had spent more time just enjoying the whole vibe. Great place to stop over in the area

My partner Alison, myself, along with my mate and his wife and my brother in law, went back to Hops Hollow again as a ‘base’ for some adventure bike riding. My brother in law and I were last there in December 2019. Nothing has changed. It was great to see Willie (the manager) and the same staff again. They went out of their way to make our short stay amazing. Willie even moved his vehicles out of the way (again) to allow us to park our motorcycles at the back and under cover. Without needing to check the menu, I ordered the Lamb stew - WOW, never fails to impress the taste buds - I have ordered this meal every time I have been there - four times in total.
Such a wonderful place to unwind while siting by the fire.
Thanks again Willie, and your Merry staff - see you soon.

Friendly bartender, slash brewer, will make you feel at home! Grab a drink, kick a chill and forget about the hustle and bustle of your busy life.

Good beer. Not a venue for efficient service. The service is friendly and well intentioned, but the skill is all in the brew, and not in the pace.
Although it took 30 min before we got our first drinks; they were very accommodating in getting a table placed outside for us, and once service began, it maintained a reasonable pace.
The food was very high quality, and everybody found the food very tasty and above average portion.
The highlight (other than the beer) was the bread pudding, which I believe was a special, and not a menu item.

This is my third visit to Hops Hollow, however the first tine to stay over, and won't be the last! My brother in-law and I stayed here two for nights between Christmas and new year and a short biking trip.
From the time we were greeted at the door on Friday afternoon, until we departed on Sunday mid morning, we were made to feel like part of the family. The accomadation is great and clean. The pub downstairs is where you spend your time chatting, drinking and eating to the owners and other guests. Children are able to sit there too as this is not a rowdy place. They brew there own beer which is really good. We even had 'gluhbeer' which is basically gluhwein but made from beer - sounds odd but really really good - especially when we arrived back late Saturday afternoon with chill in the air and the mist rolling in. The manager Willie (the son) is a fantastic host - but so is Willie (the dad), Mum and Sister. All in all, the venue, food and hosts make this a special place.
Thanks again guys - will definitely be back.....

Cosy pub for beer tasting and pub lunch.
Hubby tasted the beer and he ordered steak and I should have stayed with my original choice of chicken snitzel but I changed it to chicken curry. The steak was fine but the chicken curry was not spicy and was dry and was light yellow. Think it was too much tumeric in and too little curry. There was no sauce to drain into the rice. Extremely dry. Service was great and staff very friendly. Next time I would order something different.
