We went there for a beer and hamburger. The atmosphere is laid back with long benches and sport tv We enjoyed the meal and it was of high standard

Awesome experience! Had a nice beer tasting and craft burger after a weekend of competing at a Crossfit event. Band was playing - all created a nice vibe even though it was cold and raining. Will definitely be back for another visit!!

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...
