Because NO great Party ever started with someone eating a Salad!

South Africa’s largest and most popular beer festival, the Cape Town Festival of Beer is back and set to rock the Mother City this November! Hosted at the Hamilton’s Rugby club from 25 to 27 November 2016, this year’s event promises to be bigger, better and even more epic!

Returning for a 7th consecutive year, the 2016 event will feature some of the most sought after local and international beer brands with over 200 beers being showcased from 60 different breweries. The festival will boast a monster entertainment line-up with the Parlotones live on stage on the Friday and will also serve as the ideal spot to watch the Springboks vs Wales game on the Saturday.

Whether you’re a beer enthusiastic, connoisseur, socialite or just keen on sharing a few cold ones with your mates, this is one event you won’t want to miss!


“After six remarkable events, we both excited and proud of what we have achieved thus far, and we are extremely grateful to our loyal CTFOB fans that have supported us over the years. We have been plotting all year to make this event our biggest to date, by adding some really cool new elements to our festival offering and securing one of SA’s most iconic music acts, the Parlotones to headline the festival. I’m pretty certain this will be our most memorable festival to date”, says Martin Tucker co-owner of the Cape Town Festival Beer.

Guests will have loads to look forward to including guided beer tours with experts to ensure you get the most out of your experience as well as amazing food options from: Celeb Chef and MasterChef SA Judge Pete Goffe – Wood, popular burger joint Hudsons, RAITH gourmet and more…

Let your guide take you around while you meet the brewers and sample a variety of beers, watch home brewing demonstrations and participate in blind tastings. If that’s not enough there will also be a beer judging competition, beer merchandise for sale, lucky draws, raffles and all the works to make for one proper weekend of complete FUN!


Rugby fans can catch the South Africa vs Wales game at 19:30 on Saturday, on big screens at the Festival! Tables can be booked at
