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.

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.
