“I was there for the Beer!”
Reviewed 2 May 2014

Start of with a sample of what is on offer - gratis. Then give yourself enough time to try at least two or three, and remember to start light and progress to the heavier ones. My favourite? Clarens Red is hard to beat in my view, but the Blonde and the Weiss is also great. AND the Stout.... Oh yes, going back with friends who enjoy great beer at perfect temperature.

“Beer Heaven”
Reviewed 2 May 2014

I'm not a beer drinker, but after trying the free samples I fell in love with their Clarens Red Ale - perfect!! Must have had 4 during our stay and loved it. Great atmosphere, fresh and modern. Come early, it gets very busy!

“Got to try the blonde”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

Good beers as the micro brewery trend moves across South Africa. Good service and the range of beers they brew is good and taste is very good, worth calling if for a lunch outside
