We have visited the Birkenhead brewery, in Stanford, on many occasions and have always found it to be a very pleasant outing. The staff are always very obliging and helpful. The food is tasty of a good quality and sufficient proportions. The beer is excelent and well brewed. All this coupled to the magnifient mountain views makes this a really worthwhile trip.

We love the Birkenhead brewery and always make an effort to get to the brewery when we are in the Hermanus area. Well worth the trip. The beer tasting is a must in order to determine your favourite and then sit down with a full glass over your favourite over lunch. All the beers are great but Honey Blonde is a firm favourite amongst our friends and family. Make an effort to be there over lunch time as they make one of the best beer pies I’ve tasted.

We called for a spot of lunch and to visit the Winemaker of the Estate. We had a lovely lunch, we did some wine tasting, which was fantastic and the setting is really something that should not be missed if you happen to be in the area. Highly recommended.

Beautifully indoor and outdoor setting with mountain backdrop. Where better to taste both wines and beers. Enjoyed lunch of homemade soup and beer beef pie was also much loved of a small but varied menu that caters for different tastes. Good service. Would recommend a stop here.

It's a great brewery with a nice selection of beers, wines and ciders. Top pics for the beers are the chocolate stout and the honey blonde. The atmosphere is really relaxed and very inviting with a beautiful view of the mountains in the area. The staff is always friendly and welcoming. I like to come here during one of my days off and have a couple beers and burgers with friends, and have never been disappointed. Definitely worth a visit, even if you are just driving through the area.
