Tap Room & Restaurant, 20 Da Gama Road, Jeffreys Bay, Eastern Cape, South Africa
BrewHaha Jbay the first micro brewery in Jeffreys Bay, the surf mecca of South Africa, washed by the Indian Ocean on the coast of the Eastern Cape province.
The brewery came to fruition in 2016 after many a day of careful planning and as many a sleepless night. Brewer Marius Deetlefs, who makes a pilgrimage to the States once a year, spends a lot of time at Reformation Brewery in Woodstock, Georgia, which is where, he says, he gains a lot of inspiration for his brews.
BrewHaha Jbay’s slogan is Living the hoppy life and that, says Marius proudly, is what they do.
While the brewery itself is in Jeffreys Bay’s Lootspark Centre, the taproom and family-friendly restaurant can be found in Da Gama Road. Here you can while away the afternoon on the wood porch outside, have a chat with the brewer in the main dining room area and bar, or snuggle up next to a cozy fire in the lounge area.
In the off-season the brewery is open from Tuesday to Saturday, noon to 9pm, and in the on season it’s every day except Sundays, from noon till 10pm.
