Introducing Darling Brew

During a 9 month road trip through Africa, Kevin and Philippa Wood stumbled across the idea of micro breweries and instantly knew that Darling would be the perfect home for one. The initial ideas they came home with in May 2008 have grown in leaps and bounds and finally in March 2010 Darling Brew was born. The project has already developed to such a degree that various processes are having to be outsourced in order to meet demands but Darling will always be its home.

The Darling Brew design was inspired by the geometric tortoise, which is found only in the Western Cape and the Kalahari and is extremely rare. This tortoise captures the uniqueness and the unhurried character that is Darling Brew.

The beer is crisp and light (4% alcohol), with roasted aromas, is natural (preservative free) and has a 4 and a half week brewing time. Currently the brewery is focusing on supplying draught and bottled beers to restaurants in Darling and the West Coast Region. The response to their SLOW BEER has been excellent, but get to Darling and try it for yourself!
