Brothers Adrian and Phillip Robinson bought a fruit farm in the heart of the Nuy Valley, west of Robertson with the aim of producing wine. While travelling in Australia, Phillip noticed a trend of micro-breweries scattered in the Outback’s vineyards. This inspired Robertson’s first “beer-brewing farm”. While under construction, a troop of baboons danced on the walls of Adrian’s gabion-style lapa, causing the stones to sag. His 10-year-old daughter called it “The Saggy Stone Lapa” and the name stuck.

Once a church, the stone structure now houses a custom-built brewing system that allows the brewers to maintain the personal touch that they’ve been perfecting since 2007. Brewmasters use the finest barley and hops and the farm’s natural supply of fresh water that comes from the spring at the top of the Langeberg Mountains. This pure, moss-filtered spring water flows over smooth granite rocks and is the key to superior-tasting craft beer. You can watch the magic happen during a brewery tour by contacting the farm.

The brothers distributed their beer, but felt unsatisfied at not being able to see how beer drinkers received their beers. Naturally, they launched the Saggy Stone Brewpub in 2010. Set in the plum orchard, it offers a homely, upmarket setting that’s comfortable and relaxing. Surrounded by green grass, a pond and a jungle gym, it’s a family-friendly location where parents can relax and soak up the spectacular mountain views while kids (and dogs) explore the area.

Here, you can sample five distinctively different and satisfying brews so everyone can find their favourite. The menu offers burgers, peri-peri chicken livers, beef and ale pie, eisbein and fish and chips, all cooked using Saggy Stone beer. You can expect generous portions and rustic-style cooking that reminds you of home. To find out about the entertainment and other details, follow them on Facebook or contact them.
