We Love Real Beer!


Dedicated solely to the small, independent brewers of 'real' beer in South Africa, the WeLoveRealBeer Craft Beer Festival is a celebration of the ever-evolving Craft Beer industry in South Africa.

Building on the success of the last three WLRB Festivals, 2012 will see a huge increase in the variety of beers, with over 20 independent breweries exhibiting unique styles from around the country… so if you’re a passionate 'real beer' lover then this is the festival for you! 

More breweries, more beer, more food, DJ's and live music will all add to making this the biggest Craft Beer Festival in South Africa.

Also new this year are the special events on the days leading up to the festival, with the opportunity to get a little more intimate with a variety of brewers; dinners and tastings in Cape Town are planned with a focus on beer and food pairings in some of the city’s best restaurants. 

Breweries in attendance include (amongst others): Brewers & Union, Jack Black Beer, Boston Brewery, Devils Peak Brewery, Birkenhead Brewery, Mitchells Brewery, Darling Brew, Triggerfish, Saggy Stone, Brothers in Arms, Copper Lake.
