The Beerhouse serves 99 different beers, from ales to ciders and from weissbeers to Asian imported. Head up for the balcony and enjoy some special, rare beers while overlooking Long Street.
Excellent spot to enjoy a couple of drinks before indulging in Cape Town's nightlife.

I've been coming to ZA for years and generally limited to Castle & Windhoek....but finally craft beer has caught on and this was my first stop.
Great menu that explains the different types of beers.
Then each beer has an individual spot showing: Name/Brewery, Beer Category, Country of Origin, ABV, a description, and pricing.
I really like that there are 4 different sizes that can be ordered: 100ml, 350ml, 500ml, 1000ml
There were 3 different samplers as well which is where I started with the Beer O'clock with 12 beers...I would have enjoyed an option to build your own sampler (like Banana Jam) but that didn't exist.
I liked the atmosphere of Wembly Tap the best, but for sheer beer selection & pleasure, Beerhouse is #1 (Banana Jam was #2)

Well done for using creative words and great signage against the wall as you make your way up the stairs. If you can't find a beer that you enjoy here, it probably doesn't exist. Good central location and easy to get a cab or find a backpackers if necessary

The place for beers in Long Street. Modern and nice place. I tried a lot of beers, best was the Triggerfish. The chips served with the Berlin-style currywurst is probably the best chips I ever have tasted!
