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 brewery. They were out of a beer or two and looking forward to seeing more... More

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

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 a good relaxed feel about it.

Visited the Garagista Craft Brewery again and this place is really great. Run by Steve Miller with his crafty hipster brewers and servers, the tipple just gets better. I was already a fan of their Pom Cider (made from local pomegranates) which has tiny bubbles and tastes like a pink pom champagne (if there was such a thing). This time... More

Garagista is a small brewery, one of two, in the middle of town. It has a sign saying Hipsters and hamsters should stay away, but the welcome inside is a lot more friendly. R50 gets you the chance to sample 4 beers and 4 ciders. The ciders were fruit flavoured, and three of the four were not really to my... More

Small local brewery. Friendly staff with a nice selection of beers and ciders brewed there. Recommended stop in to taste their own brew. Hipsters are not allowed.

Very casual, yet informative tasting. I loved all 3 beers + 3 ciders as a non-beer drinker. Left with a 6pack for a present.

Had some good laughs....amazing beer. Great vibe. Such a stunning small gem. The barman/owner was amazing. Had so much knowledge about the beers, it was incredible.
