Who is looking forward to going to the Cape Town Festival of Beer?


It is the largest festival of beer in South Africa, it is back for its fifth consecutive year and is bigger and better than ever. The festival will be taking place at Hamilton’s Rugby Club from 28 – 30 November 2014, and is set to be SA’s largest annual gathering of beer enthusiasts, connoisseurs and those just wanting to learn more about beer.

The popular festival celebrates brewing heritage and craft from around the world. Featuring more than 200 beers, from a selection of local and international mega and micro-brewers, this is the largest selection of brewers and beers on show at any festival of beer in the country.

Festival goers can look forward to delicious food stands, kiddies play areas, live entertainment, food and beer pairings, home-brewing demonstrations, beer tours and most importantly sampling all beers on show for free!



There will also be live entertainment from top local bands as well as sport on big screens for those who enjoy a spot of rugga with their beers! Newton and Red Lettuce will be playing on Friday. Los Taco’s, The Rockerfellas and DJ Marshall take the stage on Saturday followed by The Rivertones and DJ Marshall on Sunday.


The Brewers: 

Look forward to beers from Red Bridge Brewing Co, Belgian Beer Co, Woodstock Brewery, Just Brewing, Leopold 7, Savage Brew, Stellenbrau, London Pride, Brewdog, Standeaven, Lakeside, Red Sky Brew, Jack Black and many more!

Interesting facts:

Garagista: The idea to brew pale ale was born while sipping on a huge over hopped ale in California. They saw the need for easy drinking ale with character and decided to brew their own. Garagista also brew their own cider.

Red Sky Brew: They brew a beer called Pinotale, which is a Pinotage / Red Ale wine beer hybrid. They are not afraid to push the barriers between wine and beer.

Kyle from Just Brewing Co is only 19 and started brewing at home with his dad. When it came to deciding on a career path after matric, it was between psychology and brewing. He figured beer pretty much solves any problems and makes people happy so brewing won!

The Woodcutter Saison from Red Bridge Brewing Co is made from ingredients from around SA and the world – malt from the Overberg and Germany, Hops from the Outeniqua and the Czech Republic, yeast from Belgium, coriander from India and Seville Orange from Stellenbosch.
