The Cape Town Festival of Beer, the largest festival of beer in South Africa, is around the corner. The Festival is set for November 23 to 25 at Hamilton’s Rugby Club and will bring even more beer to the table than ever before.
The Festival is a celebration of brewing heritage and craft from around the world. Featuring almost 150 brands, this is the premier celebration of all things beer and is SA’s largest annual gathering of beer enthusiasts, connoisseurs and those just wanting to learn more about beer. The weekend promises great entertainment for the whole family, a variety of beer and food, music, rugby and is a highlight on the Cape Town calendar.
Attendees can expect over 50 breweries – both international and local – and a limited edition of beers brewed just for the Festival. Visitors will also learn more about the appreciation of artisanal beer and perfect food choices to pair with each brew.
This year the Cape Town Festival of Beer will be bringing locals guided beer tours with experts to ensure lovers of the golden liquid get the most out of the experience. Festivalgoers will get to meet the brewers and sample a variety of beers on the tour, watch home brewing demonstrations and participate in blind tastings. And if that’s not enough there will also be beer judging, beer merchandise for sale, workshops, a beer pong tournament and the highly anticipated Beerlympics.
Rugby fans won’t have to miss out on any of the action as games will be broadcast live on big screens at the Festival.
