Loved the atmosphere and we were served by an awesome waiter, he chatted about all craft beers as we ordered them. The tasters are an excellent idea.

Loved the craft beer brewed on premises. Good platter of cheese and German sausages. A few fans might make it even cooler.

Situated in the centre of Clarens we were surprised to find this lovely brewery - if you enjoy beer you should make a point of stopping by! We did a tasting which was free, and included 6 different beers/ales as well as 3 ciders. They have more beers available as well as a craft gin which wasn't available for tasting,... More

Ideal place in front of the square for quick lunch pause or to have a drink at the end of the afternoon we had the meatball with a roll, taste is very good, with an extra cheese sausage very tasty as well, the quantity are largely enough if you are average hungry, definitely recommends the place

For a tourist attraction the service was very poor with the tasting drinks being served hot and the waiter failing to sell the sizzle. Would not recommend this place.

Friendly staff, awesome Gin (not a beer drinker), but family and friends loved the beer. Visited a few times in one weekend and loved it. Was our go to place after running a tough marathon. Didn't get a chance to really eat here, but all the food that came out looked delicious.

Not just they offer free tastings of their beers and ciders, they also serve lovely platters (and real value for money) Ambience also very nice, not to loud, with just enough vibe to enjoy your company.

It is the first time I rate a restaurant without having eaten there. So it is no rating on the quality of the food or the beer. We wanted to enter the restaurant at 06:30 p.m. on a saturday evening. But a waiter directed us not to sit down, since it would be already too late for an order. The... More

On-site micro brewery and distillery offering great craft beers, ciders and gin in fun,industrial setting. Food menu is mainly finger food - think platters of sausages, delicious hams and salami, cheese, local bakery bread.
