About Clarens Brewery

The Clarens Brewery was inspired by and established on a platform of adventure, fun and a passionate approach to brewing craft beers. The team here share an incredible knowledge of different beer- and cider-brewing techniques, as well as an innovative approach to creating new and exciting flavours.

The Clarens Brewery is situated in the heart of this little Free State town, and offers locals and visitors that are passing through the opportunity to sample a selection of the seven standard ales, the ciders, the liqueurs and spirits, and the special seasonal ales that make their way onto the menu from time to time. The standard options comprise a blonde, Indian Pale Ale, Weiss, English ale, stout, red and 1912 American Pale Ale. Seasonal favourites include Smash (a fruity single malt), Pukka Porter (an exquisite dark beer that has been flavoured with vanilla pods soaked in bourbon) and Clarens Goes Nuts (a brown ale infused with hazelnuts). Cherry, pineapple and apple ciders are the perfect way to refresh and tantalise the taste buds. In addition, whiskey, apple brandy and the Red Stone liqueurs are produced at the Clarens Brewery.

Of course, all this beer sampling can be hungry work. The menu at Clarens Brewery is made up of simple, but tasty dishes that are the perfect complement to the beers and ciders. Peckish beer-lovers can choose from various German sausages, meatballs, cold meat platters, platters of sausages with freshly-baked breads, cheese platters, focaccia with relishes, or a hearty goulash soup.

This inviting brewery has a modern, warm ambience and enjoys it gorgeous location at the foot of the magnificent Maluti Mountains. Tastings and brewery tours are conducted free of charge, which is a fabulous prospect for travellers with a passion for the loving, patient process behind producing such top-notch refreshments.
