Great place to spend a long afternoon drinking the finest beer in the Free State complimented by a lovely view as the sun came down over the mountain.

Had a couple of beers overlooking the main square. Perfect place to enjoy Clarens and the beers were good. The wine not so good, but it is a brewery!

Our waiter was extremely pleasant and helpful and really added to the vibe of the place. We did a few tastings and had small meals as a group.

The brewery has such a great atmosphere. Definitely one of the must visit places in town. The beer is great, the craft gun better. The food is average but the service is poor. The service overshadows what could be a great experience.
