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.

After the Harvest Lunch at Cloof, we went on to Darling Brewery for Craft Beer tasting. There was one beer that impressed and stood out; a craft beer based on peach purée. Very nice on its own, but as a marinade and cooking stock for a pork dish?! So I will be playing with recipes and will post pictures! Sounds... More

A first for me and my husband. We could select which beer we wanted to taste. We even had a fruit flavored beer. We agreed between ourselves that the local lager taste was better than the export lager.

Being a Local in Darling, the Brew is one of my favorite places to have a beer on the weekends. I love the Gypsy Mask and Slow Beer! Love the food - especially the burgers!

If you think that beer tasting can't consist of more than three beers...... Darling Brew offers wide selection of localy brewed beer for tasting. By the end of the tasting, there should at least be one that tickles your fancy....

A great experience, enjoying the samples of various types of beers. Able to have snacks or something bit more substantial to make it a more pleasant day out! Would recommend it.

Great little brewery that is one of the few that gets brewing craft beers right, not as easy as people think it is, friendly staff and a great burger and chips as well as some chicken kebabs and a salad meant we were well set to continue our journey…
