South Africa and fine beers go hand in hand, and visitors to this country are sure to want a refreshing pint after a day of exploring the game farms, shops, countryside and city centres. The Beerhouse in Long Street is Cape Town’s answer to thirsty travellers (and a generous lashing of locals too).
This establishment is renowned for its 25 taps and 99 bottles of local and international beers. These beers range from well-known labels to craft beers and unique products that have real character. Although there is such diversity and range, the Beerhouse prefers to focus on exposing the awesome craft beers that are being produced so that these can achieve international acclaim and so that the microbreweries can be recognised. And rightly so. There are some excellent flavours created and techniques that are being implemented under the craft umbrella.
The staff members are knowledgeable, and are able to advise on a liquid refreshment that will suit your taste and preference.
In addition to a varied beer menu, there are also snacks available. These include lunch specials, salads, sandwiches, pizzas, and more. All dishes are made with fresh ingredients, and innovative twists that add to the overall culinary delight of Beerhouse.
One of the awesome features of the Beerhouse is the beer and snack pairings. Try cherries and Windermere Cider, chilli biltong and Devil's Peak Amber, pork crackling and Lakeside American Pale Ale, Chutney corn nuts and Mitchells 90 Schilling, or Goji berries and Liefmans Fruitesse. These combinations bring out the best in the food, and showcase the excellent flavours of the beers.
Some of the beers that you can look forward to savouring are the English bitters, amber ales, Belgian dubbels, Belgian tripels, fruit beers, stouts, strong old ales, Scottish ales, and brown ales.
The Beerhouse is situated at 223 Long Street, which is the heart of the Mother City in the Western Cape, and is permanently abuzz with activity. This means that it is the perfect spot to relax, sip on a cold one and enjoy the Cape Town vibe.
