Cape Craft Beer Fest


I’ll be brief. I realise that if you’re reading this right now then you’re one of the sad bastards who (like me) is not yet on holiday. I realise that you’re sitting at your desk trying your best to look busy. I understand. You don’t feel like wading through loads of information. I get it. But surely you don’t mind reading a few details when said information is about beer? And not just beer – but where and how to consume it this weekend. Interested? Thought so.

The Jozi Craft Beer Fest is coming to Cape Town.

A cunning name change (now called the Cape Craft Beer Fest), a rad and unusual venue, some belting music, great chow and suddenly Saturday the 21st of December isn’t looking so bad. Hell, if I was in Plett already I’d drive back here. This one is going to be a really, really good day out.

What can you expect? Farryl Purkiss is not a bad start. Beatenberg too. That’s a decent drinking soundtrack. We (Frankie Fenner Meat Merchants) will be teaming up with the boys from The Southern Smoke to bring you lamb ribs, pulled pork sandwiches and a few other bits and pieces. Cooked in the beast of a smoker (seen above), they’ll be pretty damn good. Trust us. Oh, then there’s the beer. Here’s a list of the types of guys who will be pouring pints.

  • DarlingĀ 
  • Jack Black
  • CBC
  • Citizen
  • Everson’s Cider
  • Lakeside
