Why We Love Beer Festivals

south african craft beer

It’s rugby season and with rugby, there’s beer! You will find most of South Africa’s Beer festivals are happening during September – November. Here is why more South Africans are joining the craft beer revolution…

The generation of the craft beer fest is on the rise, and we’re loving it.

2015 is the year of the craft beer festival as local expos have taken local brew exposure to a whole new level. And we think it’s only a matter of time before we all join the craft beer revolution.
Not convinced? Well, here’s why we think craft South African beer festivals are the best thing since craft beer itself.

The Brews

You’re not going to find a Castle or Amstel here, my friend. Craft beer festivals are all about the real deal. You’ll find only the best local and international beers around made by esteemed local brewing houses that have spent years trying to capture unique blends and flavours.

A top beer festival will have amazing beer tours and endless samples to try until you find your favourite. These guys just make it so easy to love all things craft beer.

The Food

If there’s one thing that’s up there with great beer, it’s great food. Beer fest organisers know the importance of an amazing beer and food pairing, so you’re guaranteed to find only the best nosh available.
Whether the sweet or savoury type, you’ll find the most amazing beer inspired food around.
By far.

An All-Round Good Time

Even those who aren’t big beer fans can head down to their local beer fest simply for the vibe. Awesome live acts are usually the order of the day with local artists keeping things upbeat.
You can even learn how to set up your own brewing kit when you watch the masters doing live home brewing demos.

They happen all year round

Come rain or shine, there’s always a craft beer festival happening somewhere. Here are some awesome local beer festivals seeing us through October:

Cape Town Festival of Beer
World of Beer Fest
South Beer Fest

Be sure not to miss your next local beer festival and look out for special craft beer offers or order a mixed craft beer case this month in time for your next World Cup braai.
You won’t be disappointed.

    Please take note of the Thousand Sensations Crafted Beer and Food Festival that will take place on 16 and 17 September 2016 in Wilderness for the third time. This year 26 breweries participated and 2500 people attend.
