This is right next to the entrance of the Bay Harbour Market. This is how we found it, thankfully. Fabulous German style beers are on tap. Guys behind the bar are very friendly, give you an insight into the brewing process and let you taste a little so you can make your mind up which one to go for. German... More

Hout Bay is famous for it's Harbour and market which runs on the weekends. It can get really full. That's why I was pleasantly surprised when I cam across this place, a few meters away from the door. They have amazing beer, I mean exceptional beer. They also had some really good music playing and was great way to end... More

Visited the brewery on Sunday afternoon. Area is very popular on Sundays. No real atmosphere and a bit corporate. Better brewery can be found in Noordhoek with better staff and seating. Beer is also better at other micro breweries. Not a place I would visit again.

I was very impressed by this bar since the excellent beer you drink there has been brewed there...and you can have a look on how they are doing that....I never saw that before and I highly recommend a visit to see and taste their production. It is near by the food market also if you become hungry after some beers....

We went to Hout Bay to find the much touted Snoekie's fish joint which we did but unfortunately do not sell beer (perhaps the only place in South Africa that doesn't). So we took our food and found just across the street the Urban Brewing Co. As it was just 5pm we were the first people through the door and... More

Located right next to the Hout Bay Market, this brewery serves an array of different small-batch brews and also a really great dry cider.

The decor of Uran Brewing co attracted me. What a nice surprise to see that it is not only a pub, but the brewery is at the back of the building. There is beer on tap. I tried the bottled cider.
