We Love Real Beer Fest 2017: A Celebration of Craft

We remember the folks who made South African craft beer what it is today... and having them all back under one roof sounds pretty darn great.

If, like us, you’re partial to the odd brewski, you might want to join us at this fun festival that so accurately captures what South Africans love… beer! But not just any beer; real beer; beer made by the hardworking brewers who have made our craft-beer industry what it is today.

Just Beer With Us

Hosted at party central – aka Jack Black’s Brewing Co in Diep River – the Craft Beer Festival returns to the Mother City on Friday, 15 December 2017, after an extended hiatus. The day-long event promises to be barrels of fun, with live music and an assortment of food trucks heating things up. Mono Pony, The Stir and Cherry Vinyl will keep the beats flowing, while food will be available from NOB (burgers), Eezy Eatery (curries), and Black Beer’d (fish and chips).

The Craft Folks Behind The Beer

The festival celebrates the pioneers of South Africa’s craft-beer industry, and the early supporters who helped grow the industry into what it is today. Many stalwarts will be present at the event, to toast the memories and achievements of South African craft beer. The lineup for this year includes:

  • &Union
  • Devil’s Peak Brewing Company
  • Citizen
  • Cape Brewing Company
  • Darling Brew
  • Boston Brewery
  • Everson’s Cider
  • Michell’s Brewery
  • Birkenhead

So be sure mark this on your calendar, as you don’t want to miss an entire day dedicated to the love of beer.
