We stopped in due to hearing about the brewery, and we share the same name. We took the tour and the full tasting. Was a good time, the customer service was great. I would recommend stopping in.

Everytime I pass through Knysna this is on my list. Love the beer, the food and vibe! Glad the bar is still kep high. Service was a little slow this day, seemed understaffed... Maybe plan ahead for long weekends?

We sat on the patio and it was nice for people watching. We ordered a flight and a basket of fries to snack on. Nothing special...

We had a beer tasting, our waiter was very friendly and the food was very good. The gift shop can be improved but otherwise definitely worth a visit

Shame, was looking forward to this evening having read a number of positive reviews. Waitress was totally disinterested from the moment we walked in to the moment we walked out. First glass of wine took 15 minutes to deliver to our table. No apologies offered....More

Great spot if you fancy trying some local beers (and gin and cider). Starters were a decent size and the burgers were nice. Ideal place for a different Friday night.

We visited the brewery for the first time in December. We are a family of four, and all over the drinking age. This is not really a venue for underage youngsters. The beer was not all to my liking, too Ale focused, so if you...More

Fun experience trying five tasting beers and then a pint of your preferred one at the end. It was fun to do and most enjoyable. We'd already eaten before visiting, but the restaurant menu looked great too. For non-beer drinkers soft drinks and ciders are...More
