It is possible to hike to the brewery from Mountain Drive.

Park your car at Grey Dam or on Mountain Drive. Make your way down to the saddle of Featherstone Kloof by any of the many paths.

For a pretty route that is not too long or steep, start by going down Dassie's Krans to the Featherstone Kloof saddle.

Shortest route: From Mountain View Manor, take the track down to the saddle (see yellow route).
From the saddle there are two routes to the brewery. You can either walk due south up the hill and, when you get to the rocky ledge, curve round the west side of the hill along the high contour above the N2 (orange route), or for a less strenuous walk you can take the track west towards the N2 for roughly 50m, and then head south-west under the power lines and take a short scramble onto the lower contour above the N2. The two routes meet 200m before the edge of Brackenhill's property, on which Featherstone Brewery is located. Cross the fence line onto Brackenhill property at the gazebo. Go left at the gazebo and follow the path down the hill and through the back gate into Featherstone Brewery's beer garden.

Enjoy a nice cold draught - you deserve it!

You can now either hike back to town, or ask the bartender for a number to call a cab.
