The popular Capital Craft Beer Festival returns this Saturday, 15 June 2019 for the 7th time.

As the Capital Craft Beer Festival established itself as an indispensable part of the Pretoria social calendar not to be missed, over 40 brewers are ready to set up their stalls once more.

Capital Craft 2019: What to Expect

This year, entertainers such as Mango Groove, Koos Kombuis and Fokofpolisiekar are set to entertain the crowds. There will be over 40 brewers and over 200 beers on tap with more than 20 food stalls for those who’d like something to eat.

Festivalgoers are advised to bring cash. If you’re wondering what you will be paying for a beer, it should be remembered that the Brewers set their own price even though the recommended price is R20 for 250ml and R30 for 500ml. If you are not sure on what beer to order please ask the brewers for a taste first!

Capital Craft would also like to remind you to bring picnic blankets and/or camping chairs to sit on.

“We do have loads of seating but the venue has so many cosy corners.”

And remember, no cooler boxes, gazebos, drinks, food, pets, weapons or drugs are allowed into the festival.
