Route 62 Brewing Company

Artisan Brewing Company

A beautiful artisan Brewing Company in the Old Post Office building on Church Street, Montagu.
The original building dates back to 1888 as the original post office and during the Boer war this same building was commandeerd to be used as the headquarters for the British troops.

In 1918 the building became a private residence and much later was also the home of well-known Esther Hofmeyer. This building remained a private residence until 2016, but now boasts the most gorgeous Artisan Beer Brewery, boldly marked with a big red post box in front.

The “official” opening (even though many happy customers already tried the new beers since mid September) was on 21 October 2017, an “open day” for those who have not tried these delicious brews before and those who did, but wanted a second or third try.
As Jon Hughes, Brewmaster, said: “The day was a big success with more than 60 people through our doors and all great feedback about the food and beer.”

Christine Hughes, outdid herself with delicious platters to accompany the great beers.
The good news is, that some beautiful light lunches are also available every day (except Tuesdays and Wednesdays when the brewery is closed for brewing and filling up the tanks) from 12:00-15:00.

The range of beers is an exciting variety of Blue Point MPA (Montagu Pale Ale); Old Fort ESB (English Special Bitter); Post House Red (Irish Ale); THE R62 (Special Brown Ale).
Chatting to Jon that has now been serving a fair amount of beer to his customers, it seems like the Post House red has become the locals' favourite.
