At the recent opening of Hemel-en-Aarde Brewery, locals got a taste of what this new microbrewery, beer garden, taproom and brasserie restaurant has to offer.
Located at Hemel-en-Aarde Village, the brewery focuses on two beers that are crafted in-house – Hermanus Lager and Hermanus Pale Ale – and serves the kind of food that pairs well with beer, such as tasty ribs and burgers that are prepared on the kitchen’s wood-‑ red grill.
The premises are spacious and the interior smacks of minimalist sophistication, with an inviting beer garden where friends and families can relax while the children play in the garden. Other thirst quenchers on the menu include the Whale Crier’s, Mr. Brownstone, Pot Belge and Californicator, along with Hermanus Classic Dry Gin and Tonic.
The brewery is the brainchild of businessman Marc de Maudave Bestel, who partnered with Brian Brown to bring his vision of Hermanus as a destination for lovers and purveyors of quality beer to life.
Here at the Hemel-en-Aarde Brewery visitors can experience the craft of beer-brewing and the joys of consumption all in one place. Open 7 days a week from 11:00 – 23:00. Contact 078 8811 020 or info@hermanus. beer. Visit their Facebook page (Hemel-en-Aarde Brewery) or www.hermanus.beer
