Cape Town Festival of Beer

Stay tapped into some of the best golden brews at this legendary summer shindig

The Southern Hemisphere’s largest festival of beer is about to spill into the Mother City, and it promises to overflow with every conceivable variety of the amber nectar. That’s right friends; let the good times flow at the Cape Town Festival of Beer, taking place at Hamilton’s Rugby Club in Green Point from Friday, 25 to Sunday, 27 November 2016.

Founded in 2009, this malt and hops celebration features more than 200 beers from over 60 local and international breweries, who will be showing off their craftsmanship with a staggering range of commercial and craft beers, including limited edition brews that have been created just for this occasion. This bubbling booze fest is the ultimate watering hole for beer connoisseurs, lovers of the golden brew and even occasional sippers who simply enjoy an ice cold draught every now and then.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT THE 2016 CAPE TOWN FESTIVAL OF BEER

A WIDE VARIETY OF BREWS: This comprehensive beer festival gives you the chance to engage in tasters from all the participating breweries, from the big swigs (think Carling Black Label) to the micro brewers (think the boutique Darling Brew). Patrons can look forward to sampling brews from Beerguevara, Belgian Beer Co, Stickman Brewery, Brew Dog, Leopold 7, CBC, Devil’s Peak Brewing Company, Jack Black and many more!

IT’S BEERY EDUCATIONAL: If your other half is still not convinced – it does sound remarkably like  a VERY valid excuse to chill out in the sun, catch some sport on the big screen and put back a couple (we’re being modest here) of cold ones – you can highlight the educational value of the celebration. Experts will provide guided tours, food and beer pairings, and workshops explaining more about this refreshing drink – sharing its history, teaching you how it’s made and what food goes best with what brew. Watch home brewing demonstrations and participate in blind tastings, all for educational purposes of course, as you expand your knowledge about the craft.

BEER’NTERTAINMENT: There will also be a jam-packed line-up of entertainment to savour. From live music and rugby screenings to a kiddies’ play area and a beer judging competition, the Cape Town Festival of Beer will put the fizz back in your weekend. Not to mention the food stalls, lucky draws and beer merchandise that will be on offer throughout the course of the festival. On Saturday, 26 November our beloved Bokke take on the Welsh and you'll be able to catch all the action on the big screen at the festival. Talk about a match made in heaven!

Oh wait, did we forget to mention that The Parlotones are the festival's headline act? Yes, that's right. Push me to the floor, why don't you! These SA legends will be taking the stage on Friday, 25 November 2016, so get amped Cape Town. 

SPOTS TO PARK: For those keen to just kick back and drink in the festive, jovial atmosphere, there is ample space to park on the grass. Plus, if you’re looking to secure some prime seating, simply book a table (tables are limited and sell out quickly, so don’t delay – details below).

DON'T FORGET THE FOOD: This year, everyone's favourite MasterChef SA judge Pete Goffe-Wood will be in attendance to delight your tastebuds, as will Hudsons Burgers, Raith Gourmet and more. Nothing goes better with beer than some delicious nosh, then throw rugby in the mix and you've got yourself a pretty spectacular afternoon.
