The Firkin Brewery
Firkin Brewery - (031) 265 0154
The Firkin Brewery is situated on the roof level of the Pavilion centre in Westville, Durban and has been in existence since the opening of the Pavilion in 1994. Now under new ownership this niche Brewery can produce up to 8500 litres of draught beer a month, which is sold on the premises and in select outlets. The Firkin Brewery is home to Foxx Lager and Foxx Red Ale, and is the venue that has given birth to this independently brewed beer. Boasting a huge range of beers on tap, Firkin Brewery gives you the opportunity to partake in nature’s finest beverage, at a venue which caters for shopping and relaxation.
Firkin provides the feel of being in the brewing environment with its beautifully crafted copper vats and authentic brew house. One has the choice of sitting at the bar, in the restaurant or on the open patio.
The Firkin Pub and Brewery is a comfortable spot to watch cricket or rugby on the big-screen TVs, or just enjoy their large selection of beers. The menu consists of standard pub fare like bangers & mash, fish & chips, and thick-crusted pies.
They’ve also made forays into live entertainment, hosting a range of local bands from roots drummers Napalma, to Indie rockers - Fire Through the Window, to Metalheads - Contrast the Water. It’s a great idea, because their location ensures they won’t have the municipality shutting them down for noise complaints. Best of all, they give the people the music they want for a price they like… free! That’s right, all the concerts have no cover charge.
Even better, the toilets are always clean and there’s safe parking available in the Pavilion centre, even when it’s competitive.
The Firkin can be found at numerous place throughout South Africa but unfortunely there is only 1 in the city of Durban.
