Africa’s First Carbon Neutral Brewery

Brewing since 2010, Darling Brew is one of South Africa’s most loved and award-winning microbreweries. We produce a range of premium, specialty beers – celebrated for their flavour, quality ingredients and purity. Each of our unique beers is dedicated to the plight of an endangered African species. With our state-of-the-art 30 hectolitre brewery located in the West Coast village of Darling, we are committed to sustainable brewing and business practices. In 2017 it was declared Africa’s first carbon-neutral brewery, and we continue to innovate around benefiting our community while leaving only our footprints.

Restaurant at Darling Brew

The Tasteroom at our brewery in Darling offers a simple menu of contemporary pub fare. In keeping with our sustainable journey and our commitment to the community, much of the produce used in our kitchen is locally sourced. Our range of beers can be enjoyed indoors, overlooking the brewery, or outside in the garden. The giant jungle gym in the popular kids play-area makes the Darling Brew experience one the whole family can enjoy.

Bookings is essential on weekends.



The DBX2019 mountain bike challenge marked the sixth consecutive year of running this iconic event in Darling. One of the most anticipated single-day races in the Western Cape, Darling Brew Xtreme boasts four exciting routes, all beginning and ending at the brewery. This year we fielded over 2,000 competitors and plans are already under way for an even bigger DBX2020.
