Don’t miss the Joburg Festival of Beer


Do you love beer and are you looking for something to do this coming weekend? Well, the Joburg Festival of Beer is coming to Pirates Sports Club in Greenside. It’s happening from the 6th to the 8th of September 2013 and it promises to be one of the highlights on the Jozi social calendar. Beer lovers have the perfect opportunity to compare and taste over 150 beers from brewers across South Africa and the globe.

The Cape Town Festival of Beer (which is currently the biggest festival of beer in Africa) has been such a huge success that the organizers have decided to create a Johannesburg leg for this event. There’s currently a huge interest brewing for craft beer in Johannesburg and Pretoria. The Joburg Festival of Beer is the perfect opportunity for Joburg brewers to exhibit their delicious beers and for Cape Town brewers to introduce their tasty brews to the Jozi market.
