About a year ago, we started noticing a trend in the markets (like Neighbourgoods in Braamfontein and The Old Biscuit Mill in Woodstock) we were visiting – stalls offering craft beers from a range of new microbreweries. They also started popping up in pubs and restaurants like The Foundry in Parktown North. The Swartland town of Darling is home to one of these handcrafted artisan breweries. In a very stylish tasting room, the “Slow Quarter” with its great industrial look (think rough wooden tables, funky artwork and blackboard walls), you can do beer tastings of all six the beers they have on offer. The beer is accompanied by meals with a distinctive local flavour. It is a great place to experience their “slow beer” philosophy – do not be in a hurry (their waiters are not J), but rather take your time to savour the beer, the company and an excellent outing to a great countryside town.
