Had a wonderful experience here. Really fun decor and the owner obviously takes craft beer seriously. The staff were really friendly and attentive. The barman knew his tap beers and seemed to have fun meeting my requests. I frequent a lot of craft beer bars and always like to get the bar staff to help me out with some fun choices based on my tastes. Food was really good and reasonably priced. Definitely my first choice for a craft beer bar in Cape Town.

Great selection of beers and the food is good. Staff are friendly and helpful. Tried one of the new beers, Bacon and Chilli Ale, too much like breakfast for me.

Enjoyed a relaxing meal, washed down by a few craft beers, some brewed on site. Bacon jalepeno poppers accompanied the pork main course - both very tasty. Service friendly and efficient in a relaxed, viby ambiance

We went at lunch during the week so it was quiet.The burgers were tasty with fresh fries & thin crispy onion rings.
The service was good too.
There is a big cocktail but the wine list is limited. lots of chilli dishes too if you want a burn!
