We visited BRT Brewery and the Meerkat Deli. The owner family were so welcoming and we spent ages just chatting about Graaff-Reinet and country life in general. Willie, Diana, Henning and Anel Boshoff were absolute stars! Henning served our craft beers after a small taste...More

Had a quick little stop at this brewery, the bar itself is beautiful. The service was good, the only downside would be the limited selection of crafts on tap. The pricing was very reasonable!

The bar is great, really looks the part! The beer available is really good, and I did notice that they do have a good selection of gin, wines and other spirits available as well. The only part that does need a bit of work is...More

As a regular visitor to G-R I was pleasantly surprised to find this hidden gem. We enjoyed a few fabulous Red Ale Draughts in the lovely courtyard. There were unfortunately none of the other beers available for us to try. We also enjoyed a great...More

We found this lovely courtyard pub surrounded by boutique shops and a deli to die for, on Kerk [Church] St. Set under a jacaranda tree, they serve Cederberg beers and their own GRT brew. I tried all the beers, and all are excellent. But the...More

Stopped by for breakfast and a pint (I'm on holiday, don't judge ;) ). The GRT ale is refreshing with a hint of bitterness and great on a late sunny morning. Also had the breakfast omelette from the associated deli and it was large enough...More

Stopped for a quick sample. The bijou bar is beautifully decorated and very cosy. The inside is supplemented by seating in a sunny calm outdoor courtyard. Sunny friendly greeting, but not too much explanation on the types of beers available. Decent choices of gin on...More
