Meet the Beer at Villain’s Ale House

Meet the various curators of craft beer at Villain’s Ale every Wednesday!

Nestled in leafy Hout Street in Cape Town lies an experience of lekker local craft beer tastings that will tantalise your taste buds!

“The idea is that it’s an all-man’s bar,” says General Manager Matt Kerr. “Everyone is welcome… Even the villain.”

The ye-olde Ale House offers an insightful Meet the Beer event, where patrons are introduced to local craft beer and educated on the different brewing techniques, flavour combinations and pairings to optimise the featured beers.

Meet the Beer brings the consumer closer to the brewers, helping patrons and beer drinkers understand the makings of their favourite beer, as well as introducing them to the new kids on the brewing block. With beers like Anchorage and Striped Horse represented in the past, patrons can expect quality craft beer on show, as well as free tastings and bar snacks on the night.

The event includes a setup of a variety of different beers from the featured brand, along with a round (or two) of beer pong, and/or battle shots (which is derived from the game of Battleship). If this sounds like gibberish to you, and you’re not in the know about the nitty-gritties to these games, don’t fret. Villain’s Ale and its patrons have a way of including everyone (even the villain!) at the grub hub: “If you don’t know how to play, trust me they [fellow patrons] will teach you,” says Matt.

Kick start your Hump Day at the Tarantino-styled hotspot between 5pm and 6pm, as Villain’s Ale offers Happy Hour specials every Tuesday to Saturday, where patrons can expect to pay half price on all beer (excluding And Union), Pandora’s Box red and white wine (per glass), and  all cosmos and margaritas.

The Wednesday night Meet the Beer event also features a host of musical entertainment to accompany the beer. From live performances by resident singer and guitarist, Josh Grierson, who switches to the Weirdkid persona once he hits the decks. Other DJ’s on the line-up also include DJ No Request, King Louis, Tariq Michael Blaine and DJ Thommo who will keep you up and on your feet until the wee hours of the morning.

BOOKING FOR MEET THE BEER AT VILLAIN’S ALE HOUSE

Bookings for Meet the Beer at Villain’s Ale House are not necessary as the natural charm of the space encourages patrons to hang around the high beer tables and bar areas, envisioning an old-school English-style pub.

Opening hours: Tuesday to Saturday: 12pm – 2am | Sunday & Monday: Closed
