The Cape Town Beer Festival was launched in 2010 and is due for its seventh successful celebration of all things beer in November 2016. This is the largest beer festival in the Southern Hemisphere, and is inviting locals and tourists to see why it is so popular. It will be held at the Hamiltonís Rugby Club in Green Point, right next to the V & A Waterfront on the Foreshore of Cape Town.

This festival explores the history of beer making, the heritage that it has established (both in South African and globally), and the wonderfully dynamic craft as it grows and evolves all over the world.

More than 200 beers will be showcased at this yearís Festival of Beer, where those who know and love beer in its many forms will gather together to compare notes, sample golden brews and purchase their favourites. More than 60 breweries will attend the festival. Some of these are locally based, while others hail from other countries. A few breweries will even have limited edition brews that will only be available for the Cape Town Festival of Beer.

In addition to the fantastic golden brews, there will also be plenty in the way of entertainment, like music and screening of the live rugby matches that are scheduled for this weekend. There will be food stalls aplenty, so visitors to the festival can be assured that they will have moreish snacks and hearty meals to complement their beers of choice.

Guided beer tours will be conducted by experts. On these, you will have the opportunity to sample a number of beers, meet the enthusiasts that created them, watch home brewing demonstrations, and enjoy blind tastings to test your skills and get the most out of these refreshing flavours.

To add to the excitement, there will be lucky draws, raffles and competitions throughout the weekend, and beer-centric merchandise will be on sale.

Venue: Hamiltonís Rugby Club
