Anvil Ale stocks a fantastic range of craft beers, brewed on site (you can observe the brew master "doing his thing") from the pub, through large windows into the "engine room". The brewery has a few beers available year round, with a few more available seasonally. My favourite is the "lawnmower" beer, so named because it is the perfect recovery... More

First time I have every visited a craft beer brewery and I must say I am glad we visited Anvil Ale Brewery. I was not sure what to order at first and they suggested the Cherry Cider - delicious, we then opted to do a beer tasting which was free - what awesome beers they brew I certainly fell in... More

Definitely worth a visit. They serve tasters for free and have around 7 different beers to choose from. They also serve a very nice Cherry Cider. The venue is quaint and nice to sit outside. The service is super fast and very friendly. They do have a small pub menu to go with the brew... Lovely place, lovely people.

If you are an old craft beerer or new to the game, you can't leave Dullstroom without stopping here. Start with beer tasting and then indulge in their calabash of German sausages... Try the Cherry cider if you crave something sweeter. The boozey cake will make you came back time and again. Great place.

My first stop on arrival in Dullstroom is always Anvil Brewery 🍻 I have a couple Blond Ales and my wife loves the Cherry Ale. This time round we enjoyed the afternoon with friends.

Bit dissapointing. Only received one taster to share. We placed orders for drinks and food and it was really slow
