Attached to the Devil’s Peak Brewery, this vaguely New York-y drinking den allows you to explore the beer brewing experience before tucking into a pint and a pulled pork sandwich. Other food offerings include a super Reuben’s sandwich and a pretty epic burger, but it’s the beer that’s the real draw here. These guys are passionate about what they do and there’s a great range of liquid things on offer. The beers brewed in house include a malty dark IPA and a light golden ale, barrel aged speciality beers and a complex wine-beer hybrid. There are four rotating beers as well as the always present King’s Blockhouse IPA and Silvertree Saison on tap. The room is a handsome mix of bare brickwork, vintage lamps and arms chairs, nautical memorabilia, old cricket bats and clocks. Bringing a taste of the craft beer scene to the Cape, this is a space serious beer aficionados and less picky drinkers can enjoy alike (if you don’t like beer they also stock a range of local, hand-crafted liquors). The emphasis on local sourcing extends to the food menu too. The atmosphere is chilled out and the mountain views are pretty special in and of themselves.
