We stopped by on the spur of the moment and were not disappointed. Brewery has a variety of lagers and ales, with interesting names and flavours to match. The ciders are awesome. Perhaps the sign outside sums it up best...

Riebeek Kasteel is probably best known for wines and olives. While I enjoy my olives, i am a beer drinker. It was very nice to discover a craft brewer with a large range of lagers, ales, stouts and ciders. At anyone time they have taps...More

We stumbled across this brewery while wandering through beautiful Riebeek Kasteel. Emilio was a treat, giving us a pleasant tasting of beer, lager, ale and cider. You see the brewery from the tasting area. Seating outside as well.

A small purposeful furnished beer tasting bar. Our host knew his beers very well and was great to chat to. These locally brewed beers all great. The ciders are unusual and refreshing. Must visit.

Great to find a real "craft cider" offering in SA! Delicious flavours. I don't drink beer (run and hide) but my husband enjoyed the Tears and American Pale Ale beers but found the darker brew to be a bit "oily". Perhaps intentional in this motor-themed...More

I did not have time to hang around for long but man that pale ale is good. Definitely worth the trip.

Well crafted brews and ciders and super friendly owners - highly recommended! Creative and fun ad campaign that captures the spirit of the company.

While all of the beers were available on tap for tasting, the cider range is being reduced. The apple and marula was lovely however. Emilio has a sharp sense of humour that may take getting used to, but is definitely passionate about his product.

We found Garagista by accident and decided to try some of their beer. It was provided in a friendly atmosphere and although small and quant, it was really great for a draught interlude. Worth a visit if you like beer and Ciders. Nothing fancy, just...More
