The new Darling Brewery is really great and a definite must for anyone in the area. The beers are great, I have a particular love for the Bone Crusher. I would recommend starting with a taster tray and then going for a few pints of your favourites! The food is also great, simple and delicious.

Fresh place with a nice setup. Beer tasting at a huge bar or as sitdown with a lunch snack (everchanging, but their burgers and platters are great. Location is alright, tucked away in an industrial area, but their view is alright. Sat upstairs once looking over the brewery floor and in the garden another visit. Exceptionally suited for large groups.... More

Absolutely love Darling Brew beers, and visiting here was special. The facility is phenomenal, and just love the seasonal beers on tap. Long Claw is probably my favourite. The food was also good - simple easy and works well with beer! This is a must stop on the West Coast.

Been here since 13:12, and by 14:55 still have not received ANYTHING to eat. The beer tasting is great, but not having something to eat for about 2 hours is just bad. Really bad.. Not coming back until they sort that out.

Darling Brewery is an amazing experience we sampled 13 of the beers. Through braai platter was just right for 2 of us and the setting was complimented by fresh barley being cooked, as part of the fermentation process. Well worth a visit...

Awesome beer tasting with mates. Tried four or five different beers, all great - going to have to go back to find my favorite. Also had the house burger which was really good. Some of the table had a cheese platter and a meat platter to share which also looked excellent. A great experience in a great environment, awesome to... More
