I love festivals, but I rate beer festivals as being supreme. When we learned that the Cape Town Festival of Beer was happening at the same time we were visiting, there was no way we were going to miss it. The event, held at Cape Town’s Hamilton Rugby Club on Green Point, spanned three days, but we blocked just two days for the event – one for the festival and one for recovery.
Since we’re at an age when hanging with the youngsters at a beer event is likely to cause severe liver injury and/or irritation, we chose to go to the Cape Town Festival of Beer on Sunday in hopes of fewer crowds and chill vibes. Beer was flowing from 10am until 7pm and we heeded the advice of the promoters and arrived early, getting there at 11am.
