WIJNHUIS STOCKS THE DARLING RANGE OF ARTISANAL BEERS. OUR STELLENBOSCH BRANCH CURRENTLY OFFERS PERONI ON TAP, AS WELL AS LOCAL CRAFT BEERS ON TAP. THE SELECTION OF TWO CRAFT BEERS WILL BE CHANGED QUARTERLY. OUR NEWLANDS BRANCH CURRENTLY OFFERS THREE BEERS ON TAP: PERONI, CASTLE LITE AND JACK BLACK.

DARLING BREW SLOW BEER

An extreme lager with a rich golden colour. Refreshing with a real hops flavour and rounding off with a mild bitterness. The beer is crisp and light (4% alcohol).

DARLING BREW BONE CRUSHER

Called a wit beer because this beer follows more of the Belgium style beer rather than German (Weiss beer). It is made with wheat from the Darling area as opposed to the main ingredient of our other beer being barley.

DARLING BREW NATIVE ALE

This beer is a darker and slightly bitter ale (4% alcohol), the taste is medium sweet and light bitter.
