Win Tickets to Capital Craft 2016


Capital Craft 2016 will be held at National Botanical Gardens in Pretoria on the 11th of June. The fourth installment of this annual premium beer festival will once again be bringing together old traditions and new experiences.

Capital Craft 2016 will combine the age-old tradition of drinking beer with new and exciting musical acts and introduce you to a vast variety of local micro-manufactured brews. Microbreweries have fast become the tasty and trendy alternative to commercially brewed beers.

    Sitting across from you at the bar, I can feel you staring at me, I’ve noticed you before but was to shy to say hello.. I decided that tonight would be different, I can feel my heart beating faster and my palms getting sweaty as I approach you, I looked at you and all I wanted was to taste you and the moment I did I knew there was only one true love for me and that was beer

    • Congratulations Demi! You are the lucky winner of the double ticket to Capital Craft 🙂

    You are were my strength when I was weak (hold my beer, watch this)
    You were my voice when I couldn’t speak (to that hot girl at the bar)
    You were my eyes when I couldn’t see (turning that 4 into a 7)
    You saw the best there was in me.
    Cheers to beer! I long for your crisp, refreshing kiss at Capital Craft.
