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.
The painstaking efforts taken to brew and mature these specialist beers can be tasted with each and every sip. At the Capital Craft Beer Festival, you will be able to sample beers by over 30 different microbrewers from all over the country and it promises to be a well-executed and unforgettable experience.
Please note: The organizers are aware of the problems they had at the entrance last year and have spent a lot of time brainstorming to resolve this and they guarantee you a quick and easy entry to the festival area!
