This November, Cape Town pays homage to the world capital of beer, Germany, once again with its 4th annual Bierfest.
Date: 14–16 November 2014
Venue: Newlands Brewery Village Green
Cape Town, are you ready to eat, drink and be merry? Your favourite Bavarian-inspired beer festival is right around the corner. From 14 – 16 November, Newlands Brewery’s Village Green will be transformed into a funfair full of bier, bratwurst and brezels – prost to that!
In the spirit of cheers-ing, Bru Gurus can hoist a mug of Munich Dunkel, Krystal Weiss or Royal Bavaria – all of which having been crafted by brew masters from the South African Breweries. And for the less bier-inclined palate, a range of local beer, cider, wine and soft drinks will be available.
Modelled on the German Oktoberfest, Bierfest 2014 promises to transport you to Munich (home of the original event) through more than just food and beer. Your eyes and ears will play host to a wide range of Bavarian-style tents, lederhosen-clad waitrons, and tuba tooting by the Oompah band.
And if you really want to get into the spirit, you can become one with the festivities and look the part, too! Bierfest offers the lads and lassies a host of outfits that are available for hire. Don’t want to go blonde for the event, ladies? Opt for a braided wig to go with your dirnl dress…
