Until recently Dancing Camel brewery was open to public only on Friday between 12-4pm and it was beers only. Now they decided to make it into a small pub in the middle of the brewery which is open 6 days a week, and from time to time hosts live shows and sport events screenings. You can always get the 4 DC regular beers fresh on tap, as well as two changing seasonals. There is also some pub food and a small (but decent) selection of whiskey and other spirits. Beer prices aren’t cheap, but not more expensive than in most other places in Tel Aviv. Food pricing seems very reasonable. DC makes the best beers around, and if you’re a beer lover and happen to be in Tel Aviv, you owe yourself to visit this place and taste these great local ales as fresh as they can be. This is, no matter what you will think of the ambiance or food, for the beers alone, hands down the best beer place in Israel. Bottles to-go are also available.
One of the first places to brew it’s own craft beer in Israel the Dancing Camel from Tel Aviv beer is still not very common and keeps a low profile in a country which is blessed with lots of craft breweries.
This place, which is not too far from the centre, consists of 2 rooms. The first one, just when you come in has the bar and the kitchen window, there are seats around the bar and a few more raised tables and chairs. The back room is much larger and spacey and here is where the magic of brewing is done.
There are long tables with space to sit or stand at, a big screen for sports and some shelves with Brewmania on them. It rarely gets busy and it’s always dark in there as well.
The beers are not cheap but are certainly tasty, in particular the Midnight Stout and I will recommend the APA and Diablo which is brewed with chilli. There are always 5 or 6 of their beers on tap including seasonals and they sell take away bottles. There are no other beers available except their own but there are plenty of international and local spirits.
The negative points are the prices so it’s recommended to go during happy hour. They also sometimes serve the beer with too big a head, but are happy to top it up if asked. Otherwise it’s definitely well worth a visit and a must for a beer lover.
The Dancing Camel has another pub in the South of the city in a more trendy and party area but for the real brewery tap experience this is the place.
nice place, possibly a bit dimly lit. got the sample flight which was less eye-wateringly expensive than individual glasses (like everything in Israel, beer is hideously expensive!). It wasn’t full moon, but still managed to blag the Golem
When you are a beer lover, you can only love this place. A gathering of fellow beer fans, and very friendly atmosphere. Service is bit slow, but OK. Tasted some of their brews which range in my rating. Did not check out any other beers present. Bar snacks available. Together with great company had a good beer evening.
Pub located at the Dancing Camel brewery. The beers are fresh from the brewery, about 6-7 taps, some of them pretty good. Food (kosher) is limited to sandwiches. Service could be better. Must visit for beer lovers.
Visited in July 2013.
This was a relaxed place not far from Porter & Sons. The young female bartender was very friendly. The beers were not brilliant but ok.
A beer flight with 8 beers cost 92, I also bought one bottle of Dancing Camel Golem whick I took to Sweden.
Well worth a visit.
Nice place with their own beers on tap. Beers are OK and bartender friendly. Laid back place. Food could be better.

good beer but not too many options or veraiaty. the space is a bit too cold in my oppinion. food is simple, maybe too simple. i wish i could get more information from the bartenders about the beers, not only what i already have on the menu.

A nice charming brew pub with a nice selection of regular and seasonal beers (about 7-8 together) all produced in the brewery. an American oriented brew pub (in a good way). The beer produced is great - especially the american pale ale.
