This was my first brewery visit in Africa. The atmosphere was very good and beer tasting offered. I liked the red beer the most.

You can taste here many beers in small glasses and then continue with what you like most. Clarens Blond is a perfect choice!

What can one say about a Brewery? Friendly vibes and great location. Free 'tasters' of all beers produced on the premises. The brewery also makes their own Gin....this is one place you don't want to pass by in Clarens! Cheers!
