The Southern Hemisphere’s largest beer festival the “Cape Town Festival of Beer” returns to the Mother City for a great weekend of entertainment for the entire family. Come and enjoy a pint along with some tasty food, great music and rugby.

The Cape Town Festival of Beer is the largest annual gathering of beer enthusiasts, connoisseurs and aficionados and will happen on the 23rd, 24th and 25th of November at Hamilton’s Rugby Club in Green Point. It promises to be one of the highlights on the Cape Town social calendar this year.

A celebration of brewing heritage and craft both locally and internationally, the festival will feature over 150 beers and visitors can expect over 40 breweries – both from home and abroad – as well as a limited edition of beers brewed just for the Festival.

Parents are free to bring the kids along for the day as well. There will be dedicated child-minding services and entertainment areas with qualified staff on hand. Your kids will have a great day of fun, while the grown-ups get to learn more about the appreciation of artisanal beer and the perfect food choices to pair along with each brew.

The Festival  also includes guided beer tours, workshops, beer judging, blind tastings, samplings of a variety of beers, home brewing demonstrations and (for the rugby fans) a chance to catch all the action live on big screens on Saturday at the festival.

With a beer judging competition, beer merchandise for sale, lucky draws, raffles, a “fusbal” competition and the highly anticipated Beerlympics. The Cape Town Festival of Beer is very much the epitome of beer events in South Africa and is an event not to be missed.

Tickets for the Cape Town Festival of Beer are available through Webtickets and cost R90 for each day of the festival.

The Taj Cape Town provides luxury accommodation in Cape Town and is home to the Twankey Bar where excellent craft beers can be enjoyed with fresh seafood tapas or a variety of oysters.
