Do the Festival of Beer in style – book your VIP ticket now

Saturday at the Cape Town Festival of Beer has become the highlight of beer enthusiasts’ calendars across South Africa. The day sees masses flock to Hamilton’s Rugby Club to enjoy live music, world class food stalls and some of the best beers available.

The Festival will offer over 200 beers, from more than 60 breweries. Now in its eighth year, The Festival has decided to create a unique offering and experience for the 10,000 thirsty beer fans that visit the Festival over the three days. On Saturday, in addition to regular tickets, The Festival is offering an exclusive VIP experience.

The VIP package includes a beer glass, meal voucher, five beer vouchers, exclusive table and seating area, and easy access to live entertainment. This area is the hub of The Festival, located centrally, directly in front of the main stage, and ensures that you can always roam The Festival, hopping from brewery to brewery, knowing that you can return to a comfortable seat and table. If sitting on the grass, eating on your lap or jumping up and down to catch a glimpse of the live band isn’t your thing, there’s only one way to do The Festival in style – that’s the VIP way.

So book your tickets on Webtickets or secure your VIP package by contacting bookings@capetownfestivalofbeer.co.za.

A Festival of Beer for the Whole Family

Yep, you read correctly: this one’s for whole family. Now in its eighth year The Cape Town Festival of Beer is a three-day Festival celebrating all things beer and offering the widest range of commercially available beers in the Southern Hemisphere. The Festival offers more than 200 beers, from more than 60 brewers around South Africa and abroad.

Sunday, which is the final day of The Festival, is geared for the whole family. While Friday will play host to year-end office parties and people hitting the taps after work, Saturday is always the busiest day of The Festival. This makes Sunday the ideal day for families. The Festival has a ‘slower’ feel to it, brewers have recovered from the Saturday rush and typically enjoy having more time to chat while they fill your glass with their prized brew.

While couples enjoy an ice cold beer, cider, or even glass of wine, they can kick back and enjoy the live entertainment while their kids play in the kiddies brought in especially for them. In addition to live music, there will be a range of artisan food trucks offering a wide selection of foods. Lunch has never been easier!

And the best part is that kids under the age of 12 are allowed free entrance.

So book your tickets on Webtickets and kick off the festive season with a Festival for the whole family.

The ultimate year-end office party

We’ve all been to a flopped year-end office get-together. After toiling away for 12 months, you and your colleagues assemble for that rare occasion when you all get to let the hair down. Only, it’s an awkward activity, you’re split up into teams and wind up with the same person you’ve shared a desk with for the past three years. Or it’s an all-you-can-eat lobster dinner, and you’re the guy with a shellfish allergy. Not cool.

Well there’s a solution to all that and it should come as no surprise that beer is in the answer. This year, the Cape Town Festival of Beer is hosting the ultimate year-end party on the first night of the Festival, Friday 1 December.

For those rare few that are unfamiliar with the Cape Town Festival of Beer, it’s a three-day Festival celebrating all things beer, now in its eighth year. It is the biggest festival of commercially available beer in the Southern Hemisphere. It’s a celebration of beer like nothing you’ve experienced before, with more than 200 beers on offer, from more than 60 brewers in South Africa and abroad.

We’ve probably said enough already, but before you hit send on that email to your boss, suggesting a year-end gig that will save him a good few bucks and elevate you to legendary office status, there’s more.

This year there will be a bigger focus on ciders than ever before. From the well-known bottles making regular appearances around the braai, to uniquely made ciders emerging from South African cideries (the cider version of a brewery), there really is something for everyone.

Foodies, what better to pair with your pale ale than a mouth-watering meal from one of the various artisan food trucks? Throw live entertainment into the mix and we challenge you to find a colleague who won’t be grinning from ear to ear.

“But where would we all sit?” you ask. “We’re a big group. And what about the cost of meals?”

As seasoned year-end office party attendees, the organisers of The Festival have your back.
Every corporate hospitality package caters for a table of eight and includes: entry to the festival, where you can enjoy free tasters from every brewer, eight beer glasses, eight meal vouchers, an exclusive seating area reserved for your office, dedicated staff and security for the area, easy access to live entertainment, five beer vouchers for each member of the group (to fill that glass with your favourite brew), and finally a branding opportunity for the company.

It’s a no-brainer really.

So book before spots sell out by visiting Webtickets or contacting bookings@capetownfestivalofbeer.co.za
