Cape Town Festival of Beer to overflow with flavour this December

09 October 2017

The Cape Town Festival of Beer returns for an eighth year, from 1-3 December 2017, with early bird tickets already on sale.

The Cape Town Festival of Beer is the largest beer festival in the Southern Hemisphere in terms of commercially available beers on offer. Now in its eighth year, the three-day festival offers the best in beer, cider, food and entertainment with more than 60 brewers and 200 beers on offer.  From lagers to ales, stouts to ciders and beer inventions such as hop shots, there’s something for everyone.

The festival will return to Hamilton’s Rugby Club, once again showcasing the best in food, beer and live entertainment, as it continues to cement its spot on the South African and even international beer calendar.

While many of the now established brewers will return, there will be several brewers attending the festival for the first time. Everyone from the casual beer drinker to the beer sommelier will have the opportunity to sip on beers they’ve never tasted, styles they’ve never tried and to see how brewers are pushing the boundaries of beer more than ever.

CTFOB also has an established relationship with Uber, allowing attendees to travel to and from the event using a reduced rate. 

This year there will be a unique feel to each of the three days of the festival, from the ideal year-end function or post-work drinks event on Friday, to a day of sports and entertainment on Saturday, and finally a day focused on the whole family, on Sunday.
