South Africa’s favourite Bierfest is back – this time with even more beer

South Africa’s favourite Bierfest is back – this time with even more beer

The TOPS at SPAR Bierfest has been giving fans a world-class, oompah-rock fuelled festival exBIERience for eight years now, celebrating all things Biervarian. This year sees no less than ten beautiful beers on tap, all provided by smooth hoperator and Chairman of the South African Craft Bier Association, Wolfgang Koedel and his crackling Cape Brewing Company. So, grab your lederhosen and join the smorgasbord of fun.

From September 28 to 29, the TOPS at SPAR Bierfest in association with Weekend Argus, is bringing the Brauhaus to you at Sun Exhibits, GrandWest. Be transported to the town square of Biervaria, where feisty Frauleins float on a river of beer, paddled along by beefy Bierboys. Come and enjoy some eisbein while an authentic oompah band and a five-piece rock n roll outfit duel it out onstage. Mayor Klaus Uberhüber has enlisted The Songscape Oompah Band to provide the polka and traditional German flavour, while the raging riffs of the mighty Rockerfellas will crank the amp up, before DJ Schnitzel brings the party home.

Those who have been to the TOPS at SPAR Bierfest know revellers like to play a game or two while they enjoy their beer and new visitors should be delighted about the expanded activity booths. If you know how to milk a cow, saw a log, play air guitar or curl a bierstein better than anyone else, you could win fantastic prizes. As always, the best dressed Biervarians win the best prize so don’t be afraid to go all out.

There are loads of affordable ticketing options to choose from on, so whether you want to take it easy or party like a Biermeister, there should be an option for you. Grab a Taxify with discount codes available at the event, or book with the complimentary at-event Goodfellas service (first come, first served) to ensure you get home safely.
