Two Days of Craft Beer At Capegate

A festival where the craft beer’s the star and a food truck plays supporting act

Craft beer is officially the star of its own show. It explains why the Capegate Wine and Craft Beer Festival has become the The Capegate Craft Beer Festival. Capetonians have grown a passion for the liquid gold.

Over the weekend of  30-31 August they will be able to sample a range of beers (and, okay, there are also a couple of G&T brews thrown in) made by some of the best breweries in the Western Cape. The annual festival, now in its 9th year, is hosted in the Capegate centre’s underground parking. It was moved there for the first time last year to offer more space with the festival adding craft beer and live music to the fray.


WHY NO WINE?
According to Capegate’s Marketing Coordinator, Terri Caswell, the team noticed a culture difference between the wine and the beer exhibitors. So, for 2019 they decided to focus on the craft beer culture because it’s popular in the community and surrounds, “We’ve seen our community dive into the craft beer and gin trend – so why not give them something that they’ll enjoy.”


BESIDES THE BEER...
Drink beer with nothing to soak it up, and things could get ugly. Truck Norris to the rescue. This popular food truck offers everything delicious that goes with beer from Smash Burgers and Buttermilk Fried Chicken to Mexican Quesadillas and Iron Pressed Paninis. The food is themed to famous meme (and movie) star Chuck Norris, so you’ll be ordering dishes dubbed Walker, Delta Force, Fire Walker and Way of The Dragon – you get the drift.


Drinking beer goes with swaying; proudly South African performers Deep Souls, Tasché Burger and Chad Saaiman will be providing live entertainment across the two days. Here’s the live music schedule:

Friday 30 August 2019
Tasché Burger – 7pm
Deep Soul – 8:30pm

Saturday 31 August 2019
Deep Soul – 2pm
Chad Saaiman – 4pm
