Clarens Brewery

Clarens is definitely one of the most picturesque, arty little towns in South Africa. Surrounded by the Rooiberge and situated at the foot of Mount Horeb, Clarens is famous for its multi-coloured sandstone formations, a unique geological feature of the area. But theres more! Clarens even has its own Brewery! And it's a place where some fine hand crafted beers and cider are brewed. Opened in December 2006 by Stephan Meyer, Clarens Brewery was one of only a few micro breweries in South Africa and it still is the only one in the Free State. Stephan Meyer has a passion for microbrewed beer and has been been brewing full grain, pure malt beers since 2004 with an absolute dedication to quality and craftsmanship. The brewery brews a 5000 litre batch every month of which half is bottled and the other half is served on tap in the brewery. In addition to the beers there are also the ciders which have been produced commercially since 2004 with fruit from the breweries own orchards just outside the village. The Sun-kissed Apple and deliciously pink Cherry ciders are refreshing, dry and light.

Some of the Drinks brewed at the brewery include:
Clarens Blonde. A light golden ale with a sweet malty aroma with the distinct biscuity flavour of malt with a light hop finish.
Clarens English Ale. An amber coloured ale with medium-bodied caramel malt flavour, a hint of nuttiness and medium hop bitterness with a dry refreshing finish.
Clarens Stout A dark, sweet and full-bodied ale with subtle chocolate aromas and a creamy head offering real winter warming comforts
Clarens Brewery Apple Cider A light, dry, refreshing cider bursting with the flavour of fresh apples grown in the gentle foothills of the Maluti Mountains.

Clarens Brewery has seasonal beers available most of the time that they brew when they manage to source special malts or hops. They also stock imported, bottled Belgian beers from time to time.

This lovely little brewery can be found in the Clarens on the square. If you love to try local brews on your travels, then a stop-over at Clarens Brewery is a must! They offer free tasting, and once you settle on your favourite, you can relax with a draught and enjoy one of the best views over the spectacular Maluti Mountains. One visitor commented saying that the whole vibe of the place was amazing and so was the beer. They give you samples of various beers to try and make your decision from there. It was fun and delicious!

Clarens Brewery is in the Clarens Info Centre, just off the south eastern corner of the square and is open daily from 10:00 to 18:00.
