As of September 2015 the restaurant is under new management called "Birkenhead Galley" separately listed in Trip advisor by the new owners.

Taking clients to the beer tasting, there's no fuss or detailed explanations. It's uncomplicated just sitting down to the brewery's six best beers and stout, with a written explanation on the tray provided explaining what there is. Good fun for the true beer lover who...More

Every time we visit Hermanus we drive to Birkenhead brewery, to while away a couple of hours siting in the beautiful garden, supping a few beers, which with the addition of laughing croc now has a great beer list. Wines are pretty good too!!
