After almost three weeks of traveling through South Africa we found the most delicious coffee and awesome cheese cake at Anvil Ale Brewery (also "beans about coffee"). I highly recommend this place :)

Anvil Ale stocks a fantastic range of craft beers, brewed on site (you can observe the brew master "doing his thing") from the pub, through large windows into the "engine room". The brewery has a few beers available year round, with a few more available seasonally. My favourite is the "lawnmower" beer, so named because it is the perfect recovery... More

First time I have every visited a craft beer brewery and I must say I am glad we visited Anvil Ale Brewery. I was not sure what to order at first and they suggested the Cherry Cider - delicious, we then opted to do a beer tasting which was free - what awesome beers they brew I certainly fell in... More

Definitely worth a visit. They serve tasters for free and have around 7 different beers to choose from. They also serve a very nice Cherry Cider. The venue is quaint and nice to sit outside. The service is super fast and very friendly. They do have a small pub menu to go with the brew... Lovely place, lovely people.
