Pivnushka Beer Garden at Hazendal Wine Estate

They will need us, so lets continue to share and remind everyone of the amazing places we could visit once we beat Covid19.

This was our third visit to Hazendal Wine Estate and just like the previous experiences this one exceeded our expectations.

We were meant to review the Food and Beer pairing but as per usual couldn’t resist taking in the other spoils this amazing venue has to offer.

From a walk in the Heritage Garden, with its oversized garden tools, to the various culinary experienced they have on offer, there is something for everyone:

AVANT-GARDE RESTAURANT

BEER GARDEN

THE RUSSIAN TEA CEREMONY

BABUSHKA DELI

BABUSHKA PICNICS

And uniquely curated experiences as well:

WONDERDAL

MARVOL GALLERY

FAMILY MTB PARK

FOOD & BEER PAIRING

1st Pairing

Devils Peak Lager

Mini Baguette with bratwurst and pickles

2nd Pairing

Devils Peak First Light

For de latte, anchovy and sun-dried tomato pizza

3rd Pairing

Stellenbosch Brewing Co Born Free Pale Ale

Lamb Rib with Sticky BBQ glaze

4th Pairing

Darling Brew Black Mist

Chocolate Mocha Brownie

Favourite pairing for a non-beer drinker was the 4th pairing, by far my favourite was the Mini Baguette with Bratwurst and pickles!

From a beer drinker point all were his favourite, so there you have it, go, and decide for yourself. 😊
