We Love Real Beer Craft Festival 2012

It’s official –  this year’s We Love Real Beer Craft Beer Festival is set for Friday, September 28, 2012. 


Bigger and better, and always in the spirit of the ‘small guy’, this year’s festival promises to be the best craft beer event on the continent. 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. 

The festival will run from noon to 10pm, with plenty of time to taste and enjoy the wide selection of beers on tap and in bottle. 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. 

For those who have enjoyed the WLRB festivals in the past, this year we’re striving to further improve the event, with enhanced infrastructure and flow for the best possible experience.  This means mark your calendars now, as they’ll be a limited number of tickets available. 

While tickets will be sold at the door, the best bet is to purchase through webtickets.co.za, avoiding any disappointment at the door. Save the date for September 28, 2012, and come and enjoy the best beer South Africa has to offer. This time with more craft, more independence, more taste, more texture, and more naturally brewed goodness than ever before. Now in our fourth year, Cape Town’s only true Craft Beer Festival, is back to show the world our brews.
