It’s that legendary time of year again when South Africa’s largest and most comprehensive festival of beer returns for a seventh successive year. Where beer appreciators can compare and taste over 200 beers and many beer styles from brewers from across the country and globe. This is the premier celebration of all things beer.
The TOPS at SPAR Bierfest, South Africa’s own largest annual national festival of Bavarian beer culture will be carting its kegs to Cape Town again this year. Germania is coming! Now in its eighth year running, the best-loved Bierfest will be bringing its lederhosen, dirndls, pigtails, oompah music, fräuleins, eisbeins and uber jugs of delicious, specially-made cold biers to the Boardwalk for more Fest Klaus Fun!
Building on the national success of The TOPS at SPAR Bierfest’s past, this year sees the well-loved event touting a refreshed look and feel across its 4,000-seater Brauhaus while retaining all the key elements that make the annual event so spectacularly “Bierfest”.
Eat, drink und be merry: As always, Bierfestarians can look forward to participating in a range of traditional Oktoberfest-inspired games between biers (when last did you put your cow milking skills to the test?), on-ze-spot competitions (hint: dress-up on theme as best you can), and other audience participatory activities (as if hoisting 1-litre steins of frothing bier to your lips repeatedly and singing along to German folk-song wouldn't be enough!).
Love at fest sight: From start to finish, the emphasis at Bierfest is on having fun with your buddies and the extended Bierfest family before making use of one of the event’s many get-home-safely options that make up the event’s lauded #DrinkSmart presented by Jiguja programme.
