This premier Beer Festival, taking place at the Jan Marais Nature Reserve, returns on April 13 this year. Bring your family and friends for a fun filled day of great craft beer, craft distilleries, fantastic music and some of the best food trucks around.

Beer enthusiasts can expect their tastebuds to be tantalised with the bountiful bubbly options on offer. Some of Cape Town’s best breweries will be on standby, ready to show off their finest creations. Not a fan of beer? No problem – there will also be a handful of distilleries ready to blow you away with their gin and brandy varieties.

Beer and other alcoholic curations aside, this is a day for the entire family. From live music to a kiddies play area, there is a little something for everyone. Pack a picnic basket, some suncream, and a few camping chairs to get comfortable and enjoy the day. There will also be a variety of delicious food stands on site for those wanting to pack a little lighter.
