The Clarens Brewery

Clarens even has its own Brewery! Where some fine hand crafted beers and cider are brewed. In December of 2006 Stephan Meyer opened one of only a few micro breweries in South Africa right here in Clarens. And it still is the only one in the Free State.

Stephan Meyer, the brewer, is passionate about micro brewed beer and has been brewing full grain, pure malt beers since 2004 with an absolute dedication to quality and craftsmanship. All beers and ciders are unpasteurized, preservative and additive free.

Clarens Brewery brews a 300 l batch every week, of which half is bottled and half served on tap in the brewery. The standard beers and cider available are:

Clarens Blonde

A light golden ale with a sweet malty aroma with the distinct biscuity flavour of malt with a light hop finish.

Clarens English Ale

An amber coloured ale with medium-bodied caramel malt flavour, a hint of nuttiness and medium hop bitterness with a dry refreshing finish.

Clarens Stout

A dark, sweet and full-bodied ale with subtle chocolate aromas and a creamy head offering real winter warming comforts

Clarens Brewery Apple Cider

A light, dry, refreshing cider bursting with the flavour of fresh apples grown in the gentle foothills of the Maluti Mountains.



Clarens Brewery has seasonal beers available most of the time that they brew when they manage to source special malts or hops. They also stock imported, bottled Belgian beers from time to time.

This lovely little brewery can be found in the Clarens on the square.

If you love to try local brews on your travels, then a stop-over at Clarens Brewery is a must! They offer free tasting, and once you settle on your favourite, you can relax with a draught and enjoy one of the best views over the spectacular Maluti Mountains.
