Beer tasting at the Cape Brewing Company

Beer tasting at the Cape Brewing Company

Learn the fine art (yes!) of beer-making and -tasting at this Paarl brewery.

If you’d like to see the whole process and do a tasting afterwards, CBC is open everyday from 10am until 5pm. Guided tours are not available, but visitors are invited to roam around the facilities and ask a CBC employee a question or two while exploring. After your walk, quench your thirst on some finely crafted beers at the on-tap tasting stations.

Once you’re done tasting, you might want to go for a bite at one of the restaurants (and maybe even order a crate or two to take home).

    I have taken many of our overseas visitors to CBC for a tasting of their superb beers and they and I are always impressed by the warm reception we are given and by the enthusiasm of everyone we meet there. The guys and girls controlling the tastings are extremely knowledgeable about the beers available and the process involved throughout production.
    Access is not ideal for older or infirm customers but its definitely worth the effort to get there.
    Keep up the good work guys.
