We popped into the brewery during a short visit to Barrydale from Montague, where we were staying. Weather was cool and the fireplace was inviting. The beer was good, so we ended up staying ror pizza lunch. Really nice, thin crust sourdough pizza! More red wine and some shopping at the pottery studio next door completed a very pleasant trip.

Ryno & his staff worked with our small petrolhead group to give us a second chance to drive the awesome Tradouw pass after a quick coffee break and pre-ordering of our pizzas. On return the wonderful sourdough based pizzas appeared 3 at a time washed down by some of the best home brew that everyone remarked was top class . A hidden gem in Barrydale.

Beer is wonderful, owner and staff were amazing and fun to talk to. As a solo traveler I really appreciated the hospitality of this place. If you pass through Barrydale it’s worth the stop!

Some of the best pizza around. Excellent beers with a selection for novice to serious stout types. Here you’ll find great hospitality, food that’s simplistic but not shy on flavor which mimics the excellent beers. Saison and Amber being a winner for me. Prices much like the rest of Barrydale are conservative rather than cosmopolitan. A must for the love of beer and a local brew (coffee too)

That has to be some of the best ale around! Great hospitality and excellent conversation with Ryno. We didn't get to taste the pizza but if it's anywhere near as good as the beer then you can't go wrong!

What a fantastic oasis along the tourist route back to Cape Town. After a long two days in a 10-person tour bus, we snuck away from the herd and were rewarded with an amazing pizza, handcrafted salad, tasty craft beer and fine selection of wine. We sat on the porch with another couple and listened to one of the locals spin vinyl records from years past.

Definitely worth adding to your trip - did I mention yet that the pizza with pulled pork was absolutely fabulous??

Great beer, a variety of four different ones to choose from plus some very tasty local wines by the glass or bottle. The decor is great, high ceilings and an art gallery-with-people-in-it feeling. Lots of locals in when we visited. An open mic night with some passionate guitar playing and vocals. A pizza van serving up delicious bespoke pizzas. Packs of cards for a few pub games available. Couldn't fault it.

The Makers Brew offers exceptional craft beer. A fairly new spot in Barrydale we wish them success in their venture.

I loved 3 of the beers on offer - very good.

The Mystic Overlander were making delicious pizzas in their mobile pizza van.

Arriving at the Maker's Brewery it looked like they were open, but when we walked in we found that they were actually closed and just doing some maintenance work on the tasting room (they are usually closed on Mondays and Tuesdays). The owner however invited us in for a tasting anyway as we'd come all this way. We ended up doing a tasting of their Blonde, Amber, Saison and Porter, and although all of them were good the Blonde and Saison were the stand-out ones for us and we ended up buying some as well. With the owners' passion for his beer, hospitality, and the good beer rounding it all off, it makes Maker's Brewery complete worth stopping.
