Africa’s First Carbon Neutral Brewery
In operation since 2010, Darling Brew is one of South Africa’s first well established and award-winning microbreweries. We brew a wide range of premium specialty beers – including traditional lagers, ales, oat ales, pale ales, IPA’s, wheat beers and exotic darks – that are loved for their flavour, quality ingredients and brewing process. Each beer in our range has unique characteristics and is dedicated in honour of an endangered species. Visit the Darling Brewery & Tasteroom for a great craft beer tasting experience.
Craft Beer by Darling Brew
Our brewery is a state-of-the art 30hl brewhouse situated in the small town of Darling, Western Cape. Come and enjoy a true Darling Brew experience with an extensive brewery tour and tastings, offered from Tuesdays to Sundays. The brewery is also a unique venue for private events such as year-end functions, big-0 birthdays and pre-wedding dinners.
Restaurant at Darling Brew
The Tasteroom at our brewery in Darling on the Cape West Coast offers a locally sourced smoke house menu where the concept of slow beer and slow food truly come together. The menu can be enjoyed indoors overlooking the brewery or outside in the garden where our popular kids play-area makes the Darling Brew experience one the whole family can enjoy. Bookings are essential.
The Darling Brew Journey
In October 2007 Kevin and Philippa Wood set off on a trip through Africa with the idea to see as much wildlife as possible. A few days into their trip they stumbled across an idea that they thought they could bring back to Darling. They met Andre of Sneeuberg Brewery in the Eastern Cape and were inspired by the concept of a microbrewery. Leaving South Africa they found themselves talking about something they knew little about, beer.
The DBX2019 mountain bike challenge returns for the sixth consecutive year on Saturday, 25 May 2019. One of the most anticipated single-day races in the Western Cape, DBX2019 takes place in Darling with all four routes beginning and ending at Darling Brew.
