Visited Beerhouse a couple times while in Cape Town on a recent trip. They have a wonderful selection of craft beers, available in samplers, small or large pours. Most of the beers are from South Africa, but it is an amazing selection from all over the country. It will give you a good perspective of how the craft brew industry... More

Took a weekend trip and stop by to try their beers. They do have multiple wheat beers to choose. Amber Weiss is probably the nicest one but it depends on personal taste. Highly recommended.

We came here to start a night out at around 830 pm on a Friday. They were advertising a grapefruit beer that is a limited edition and choice of the week. So we ordered it and when it came every single person at the table (there were 5 of us) took a sip and it was bitter and horrible. Everyone... More

Worst overpriced food I've ever had. Ordered Chicken Wings & the Biltong Fries, and both were below average especially for the price we had to pay. Atmosphere was average. Staff wasn't attentive and kept lying to us when we asked for the manager, who didn't bother to show. Would only recommend the place for an afternoon Beer tasting fest, nothing... More

This is a nice place to drink some beers. But in my opinion it has not a lot of Charme. It misses the flavour and personal recommendations those place could offer if the waiters would live thier job, as in other beer bars. It is too big already and people are probably not interested enough. But still...it has 99 bottled... More

A pleasant musky atmosphere, friendly staff and delicious beer (I mean come on, when is craft beer a disappointment?) but an absolute abysmal attempt at satisfaction from the kitchen! My friend and I ordered flammkuchen and both were disappointing... I would rather eat the sole of my shoe! The rest of the table was less than complacent with their meals...... More

This is an awesome place. The Yellow Facade do have an appealingly way of welcoming you. We sat outside on the balcony with a wonderful view of Longstreet. The beer, plenty to choice of, is paired with food, or on its own or pick your own. Food is well balanced portions, fresh and so good!!! Aisha, our waitress, well deserved... More
