Franschhoek Wine Valley

The Franschhoek Beer Co Tap & Eat

The Franschhoek Beer Co is known for its uniquely hand crafted, award-winning beers. The experienced team under the guidance of beer partner chef Reuben Riffel brings a new food experience to the Franschhoek Valley with Tap|Eat, the restaurant at The Franschhoek Beer Co. Offering the freshest beers on tap with regular session beers and co-labs as well as their unique food and beer pairing. Beertails (cocktails blended with our beers) expertly put together and a fine selection of local wines and MCC are also on offer.

Inspired by the same passionate pursuit of sustainable, quality ingredients and craftmanship that is the hallmark of the beers, the restaurant features a beautifully curated menu offering generous portions of fresh, tasty dishes that perfectly pairs with beer, many sourced from the farm on which the brewery is situated. A fresh seasonal / changing menu serving local produce with a traditional approach – a little modern bistro meets local terroir. The atmosphere is sophisticated and elegant, but comfortable and casual, making it the perfect place to park off with good friends for a quick bite or a long lunch, whether inside the restaurant, with its very special view of the brewery tanks, or on the expansive deck outside, under the oak trees and next to the sprawling lawns, also making Tap & Eat a very family friendly destination.
