I agree this is a unique concept and the venue is great. However, the service will have to be improved for a long term great experience. We ordered 2 cheese burgers (at 11h15). We were then told that the "buns" were still on route from Ysterfontein (and they were open for breakfast??). So we ordered spring rolls so long. About... More

This is a must visit destination if you happen to find yourself in the Western Cape Town of Darling....you can have a beer taster - 3,4 or 5 different samples - or just dive straight into your favourite....this is an award winning microbrewery since 2010 and the emphasis is on slow brewing techniques....with names like bone crusher, thunder bird, dessert...

Here is a chance for beer lovers to taste some interesting beers and after tasting a few remembering which one was the one you liked most. We took a friend from the UK here and had a great time.

The Tap room at this brewery was well worth a visit, with a very good selection of beers. I had thought it was a micro brewery, but it certainly wasn't that it was quite a large brewery. The selection of beers they brew were all on offer and I really enjoyed the IPA, which we enjoyed with the cheese platter.... More

Thanks so much for the review. Are you based in SA at the moment? I would love to replace your beers, it shouldn't be the case that the bottles don't match the draught quality. Please contact me on dbexperience@darlingbrew.co.za More

We visited the Brewery about 2 weeks ago for the beer tasting. Very good experience and a wide range of locally draft beers available. Eon took us on a tour of the brewery which was very interesting. A must when visiting Darling.
