Impression:  Darling Brew was one of the first places I came across online when searching for brewpubs in South Africa. We were going to West Coast National Park and Darling was a logical place to stay, especially once I found the brewpub!  I might not typically order a Witbier but Darling Brew had fair deals on nice size sampling flights. This was my first one and though a bit light on flavor, it looked good and was dead-on style-wise. I guess on a very hot day, it would be refreshing at 5.2% but it wasn’t that kind of day and this would have a tough day competing against Hoegaarden or any number of American beers in this style. That said, pleasant enough, especially seated in their stylish brewpub.

How about another South African craft beer?
