After a successful trip to Joburg the Festival of Beer returns to the Mother City.
The Festival of Beer is back!
The Cape Town Festival of Beer returns after an immensely successful Joburg Festival of Beer.
The last weekend of September saw the Joburg Festival of Beer, in all its golden glory, take over Pirates Sports Club for the second year! The event saw thousands of beer aficionados and beer-drinking enthusiasts come together to get a taste of the best brews across SA and abroad.
The brewers brought their best brews forward for judging in what has become the most comprehensive beer judging competition in the Southern Hemisphere, with the results speaking for themselves. With over 60 brews entered the respective winners to walk away with the glory were:
Best Macrobrewed Ale – La Chouffe
Best Microbrewed Ale – Devils Peak Kings Blockhouse IPA
Best Microbrewed Lager – Jack Black Lager
Best in Show – Cape Brewing Co Krystal Weiss
And after such a monumental weekend we cannot wait to bring the Festival of beer back to its stomping ground in the Mother City. Taking place at Hamiltons Rugby Club from the 28-30 of November, Cape Town will once again see over 200 beers on show, live bands, beer tours, craft beer brewing demonstrations, and so much more.
Early Bird tickets are available from Webtickets for R150 and includes an official Festival of Beer glass and unlimited free tastings all weekend long. Be sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for updates in the build up to a weekend of all-things-beer.
