The Franschhoek Beer Co

Here at The Franschhoek Beer Co, our award winning beers are handcrafted from the purest Franschhoek spring water and the best quality ingredients in our state-of-the-art brewery. We have six core beers that are unpasteurised and naturally carbonated. In true craft style we do regular session beers, co-labs and barrel-aged, limited editions which are only available from our taproom. Brewery tours are available and we can even brew your own beer for you! Our menu features fresh dishes, home-grown produce and a masterfully delivered menu by beer partner Reuben Riffel. In addition to award winning beers on tap, our “beer gin” – the La Saison Gin was distilled from our Belgian Style Saison beer and won gold at the SA Craft Gin Awards. We also have our famous beer cocktails we name beertails, a fine selection wines and MCC from the valley and many other options are on offer. We have a protected, shaded kiddies jungle gym/slide/play area with an awesome kiddies menu. We are also dog friendly and produce Woofaliscious dog treats which is made from our spent grains. We have lawn games and great music. We also show live sport of interest.
