Capital Craft Beer Festival 2016

Capital Craft Beer Festival 2016 – Win Tickets!

The Capital Craft Beer Festival is a well-established annual highlight on Pretoria’s craft beer and live music calendar. And after last year’s great festival (but entrance & queueing problems), they’ve decided to break tradition this year, and move the event to the Pretoria National Botanical Garden. The Capital Craft Beer Festival 2016 will take place this year on Saturday 11 June. As always, it’ll be a great event to experience both new and familiar craft beers, and witness an exciting lineup of music.

Please note that the organisers are very aware of last year’s queueing issues, have resolved to fix this, and “guarantee a quick and easy entry to the festival area” this year.

“Join us at the Pretoria National Botanical Garden when we 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.”

  1. Bombshelter Beast will make it feel like a real German beer festival with their unique sound. Along with Clarens Brewery’s delicious Red Ale, this day is going to be fantastic!

  2. Hellcats (F6F) and Cockpit Brewhouse. Once those two boys starts playing its like an aerial battle over Guam all over again, with a Mustang in hand of course.

  3. lets drink some DEVIL’S PEAK BREWING COMPANY while listening to the upbeat tunes of Radio Kalahari Orkes ! if that does not get a party going , im not sure anything will !

  4. Loxton Lager reminds you of the freedom of traveling in a Cadillac through the open roads of the karoo and what better band than Radio Kalahari Orkes to be the soundtrack to such an epic journey!

  5. Altstadt Weissbier from Drayman’s brewery enjoyed to the cool mellow sounds of Aking

  6. Probably a bit late – But defs Majozi and Striped Horse!!!
    Both from the coast, I’m far away from home (CPT), studying here.
    Would be AWESOME to see Majozi live and with that hometown glory – Striped Horse in my hands 😀

  7. I would take a Striped Horse whilst listening to Majozi. They’re what I’m looking forward to the most. When I first heard Majozi, his voice sounded like a white guys so I was surprised when I saw he was actually black. So he’s kinda black and white, like a zebra or Striped Horse.
