Craft Beer & Coffee

Although we are best known for our wine farms and world-class eateries, we also boast a number of fabulous Craft Beer Breweries for your drinking pleasure.  
And if you need a break from the alcohol, we even have our own coffee roastery which also cooks up the most amazing delectable dishes you'll find anywhere! 

You are welcome to visit these establishments on your own but how about a Crafty Beer Tour, covering all of them in one day without the need for you to drive.

And to add to our tour offering why not stop by the roastery for a bit of "Coffee Cupping" which is the art of coffee tasting.  Now that's something new!

Craft Beer has taken off in a big way in South Africa and Franschhoek does not miss out. We have four fabulous breweries in our valley and they each offer their unique brand of brew.

Three of the breweries offer splendid light meals for you to enjoy while on the tour (for your own account).  You could also choose a food and beer pairing option when booking. 

** Please note that although children are welcome to join their parents on this tour, only two of the venues have children's play grounds suitable for younger children.  Alcohol not available to children under 18

Coffee Tasting Experince
Have you ever been coffee tasting (known as Cupping by the professionals)?  Now you can.  Our local roasters a few minutes outside the village offer a coffee cupping experience every Friday afternoon at 3pm.  Prepare to have your taste buds blown!  They will show you the roasting process, explain how coffee grows and where the green beans are sourced from and then take you upstairs to sit down and taste a whole range.  A unique and interesting experience.

Once you're done tasting, you get a bag of coffee to take home.  On the way, pop in to the cafe and have a delicious light meal. My favourite is the Apple Pie Oatmeal Waffle or the Lamb burger.  Breakfast options include Savoury Polenta Porridge or their famous Mushrooms on Toast with side of cured bacon.  Delicious meals you'll never forget and come back for more.
