Clarens BreweryClarens Brewery brews fine hand crafted beers and ciders in the beautiful village of Clarens in the foothills of the Maluti Mountains. Our brewer, Stephan Meyer, has a passion for craft beer and has been brewing full grain and pure malt beers since 2004 with an absolute dedication to quality and craftsmanship.

We brew 5000 litres per month of which half is bottled and half sold on tap in our brewpub (the first in the Free State). We also produce delicious apple, cherry and berry ciders from our own orchards.

Here are some of our brews:

Clarens Blonde

Light golden ale with sweet malty aromas and distinct biscuity flavour of malt with a light hop finish.

Clarens English Ale

Amber coloured ale, medium-bodied caramel malt flavour, hint of nuttiness and medium hop bitterness.

Clarens Red

Ale with delightful fruity hop character, with perfectly balanced toasty rich maltiness and a long, refreshing, smooth finish.

Clarens Stout

Dark, sweet and full-bodied ale with subtle chocolate and coffee aromas and a creamy head.

Clarens Weiss

Light, refreshing, spicy unfiltered wheat beer with banana and clove aromas and a light hop finish.

Red Stone Apple, Berry or Cherry ciders

Our ciders are light, dry and refreshing bursting with the flavour of either fresh apples, berries or cherries grown in the gentle foothills of the Maluti Mountains.
