Celebrate SA’s most ‘specTAPular’ brews.
SA’s premier craft beer ‘specTAPular’ returns for its sixth anniversary in Jozi and in the true style of craft beer, the festival is undergoing an exciting makeover. The celebration is now set to last three days and will now be set on the exquisite Bell Tower Lawns of Montecasino from 7-8 April 2017.
The 2017 makeover is ringing in several changes and promises to deliver an interactive fun filled experience with the finest brewers from around the country. The brewing ‘specTAPular’ has been broken up into more intimate sessions over three exciting days with only 1,500 tickets available per session. The new format is all about discovery, collaboration and face to face interaction between the breweries and the public. There will be a host of interactive themed bars with fantastic food truck offerings to pair with local taps. To add to the occasion, we have selected a handful of alchemists from distillery’s, cider houses and wine farms to make sure that no one goes thirsty.
Every day has something special to offer visitors, from one off unique masterpieces to the freshest brews direct from the brewery, there is something on offer for everybody. Enthusiasts can enjoy new product launches while meeting directly with the brewer themselves. Novices can be taken on a journey through our finest taps and discover the flavours and tastes offered up by the over 150 brews on show. This will be the way to relish in everything that is wonderful about craft beer all in one beautiful and comfortable setting.
This is SA’s largest craft beer festival and will feature a stellar line-up of top SA bands to keep festival goers entertained throughout each session. The five hours sessions will run from the evening of Thursday, 6 April with the closing session taking place on Saturday, 8 April.
In another addition to the style of the festival, the public will now be able to vote for their favourite breweries to coma and showcase their talent at the annual celebration in Jozi. This will tie in with ‘Peoples Choice Award’ to be handed out in the final session to the festivals most loved brew.
