The largest festival of beer in the southern hemisphere is back, promising more ales, pilsners and lagers than ever. Now in its ninth year, the Cape Town Festival of Beer (CTFOB) celebrates brewing heritage and craft, and features over 200 beers from 60 breweries, with limited-edition brews that have been specially brewed just for the festival. Whether you’re a beer newbie, connoisseur or just keen on sharing a few cold ones with your mates, this festival is for you.
Cape Town’s Biggest Beer Festival
Martin Tucker, founder of The Cape Town Festival of Beer explains: “We have the largest range of brewers in the history of the festival – all ready to show you the best of their brews.” For the first time, international beers Hoegaarden and Leffe will be on tap. Locally, expect some favourites such as CBC, Stellies, Urban Brewing Co. and Drifter. New and exciting sour beers such as Frasers Folly’s Wild Raspberry will also be appearing this year.
Food and Music at Cape Town Festival of Beer
Visitors can look forward to an assortment of pop-up restaurants and gourmet food trucks – such as Kitchen Cowboys, Southern Smoke, Love Pizza, and Dos Chidos. There will be ample seating and casual picnic-style areas where you can relax in front of the large stage and listen to the live music.
And, for those who have staying power, dance the night away when a host of Good Hope FM DJs take to the decks such as Ready D and Dr Jules.
