This Weekend: The Stellenbosch Craft Beer Festival 2019
The Stellenbosch Craft Beer Festival (SCBF) is a bi-annual event, based in the picturesque Jan Marais Nature Reserve in Stellenbosch. Combining the best in local food, craft beer, craft gin and local entertainment, the event has gained a family of followers over the past 6 years and aims to present some of the latest and most loved craft brews at this year's event.
The craft beer and craft gin experience has taken micro brewing and micro distilling to a new level in recent years and the SCBF has played a major role in creating a platform for these artisans to exhibit their products. Visitors are encouraged to test their pallets and try new varieties at every event. This year the event will also be including kombucha for the first time, with a selection of flavors and kombucha based cocktails for the more adventurous.
The SCBF is a family-friendly day outing and visitors are encouraged to make a day of it. Bring your friends and family (there is a discount on group ticket purchases). Enjoy the food, beverages and live bands from 11:00 – 20:00. There is ample seating and shade, but bring your comfy camping chairs, picnic blankets, and beach umbrellas if you feel like getting really comfortable. This year’s Octoberfest edition of the SCBF will be taking place on 12 October 2019. Gates open at 10:00 and live music starts at noon. Tickets are available at Quicket.co.za and the link can also be found on the Facebook event page.
