With a big board advertising free beer tasting - how could we not stop...

While the beers did not really appeal to my taste - we had a combo platter that was superb. Fresh cheeses / breads and sausages. Due to the fact that they were so busy - food took about half hour, but the service was very efficient at getting drinks to the table.

Well worth a stop if you are in Clarens

Some of the best beer around! Excellent range of homebrewed goodness and with a few tasty ciders as well. We also had the sausage platter and the chips - just divine and a perfect decadent match for the beer! A must go place when in Clarens.

I am not a beer drinker however I did nothing but drink beer whilst I was in Clarens, thanks to this brewery. The platters of German sausages and cheeses were extremely delicious. A glass of their cider after a long hike was fantastic refreshment. The seating outside allows you to enjoy the beauty of Clarens and its surroundings.

The brewery has moved to a bigger location on the square, and it has made the world of difference. The beer, ciders and snacks are as good as ever, but now the view is spectacular too! The service can be a little slow, as I don't think they have more waiters, but there are almost double the tables they used to have.

We stop in Clarens for a drink at the brewery whenever we have the opportunity! 3 times and counting this year already!

The blonde ale, stout and red ale were all good. Bar service was a bit uneven; it tok a while to get noticed and served. I think they are missing a bet by not distributing their beers at retail because South Africa is seriously lacking in ales.
