With names like The Naked Mexican, Franky Four Fingers, Van Hunks and Jack Black, you may be mistaken in thinking that you're asking for trouble, instead of asking for a cold one, but worry not as those are just names of the delicious craft beers on offer at The Foundry.
The gastropub is located in a great part of Johannesburg called Parktown North and is frequented by all the people in the know, which means that if you're looking for a spot to sit down on a Friday, you'd do best to book it by Wednesday morning!
A warm ambiance and old school decor helps set the mood for a great evening out with friends, and not forgetting the great food which compliments the tasty beverages or vice versa...

The Tasty Three Little Pigs
The Foundry doesn't seem to disappoint on any level.
Their food selection goes great with the vast array of craft beer on hand.
In this case the Three Little Pigs platter (Grilled sausages with mustards, pickles, sauerkraut, and bread pretzel), paired very well with a Pale Ale from the Butcher Block brewery.
The Foundry just gets better once you hit the dessert section of the menu.
I had the Sticky Date Pudding with Whipped Cream, Smashed Berries and a side dose of Butterscotch (served in a vile of course)
My friend had the Coffee & Kahlua Brulee with Pistachio Brittle & Chocolate Biscotti.
Both desserts were simply divine and we both felt we were on some other plane of existence with those desserts under our belts.
I'm looking foward to getting back there to try out the other items on the menu!
The Foundry is a gastro pub and as such the venue prides itself on not only a good choice of drinks, but also great quality food.
While a touch on the pricier side, I'm more than willing to pay a bit more for great food in a fantastic venue!
The pizza I had was deliciously thin crusted, and topped with rocket and steak. YUM!
Be sure to pair your meal with one of the many craft drinks on offer.
I had a Kopperberg Strawberry cider, which reminded me of strawberries and cream.... divine!
Be sure to book well in advance if you're planning on having dinner at the venue on the weekends as it does get quite full, but if you're just going for drinks, squeeze yourself in at the cosy bar and order a draught.
