The Durbanville Beer Festival 2012 is in its third year and with just over 1700 people attending in 2011. This year promises to be an even bigger event showcasing more live bands, beer and food stalls. This is a family event, with loads of entertainment to keep the kids happy.
The National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI) is on board this year and will be raising funds with a, “Anything That Floats Race”. Homemade, muscle powered craft with the maximum of six crew will compete on a demarcated course to become the 2011 Durbanville Beer Festival Champs.
The Durbanville Beer Festival showcases beers from South Africa’s Craft breweries to the larger commercial brew masters bringing all beer lovers together to appreciate the fine craft of beer making.
Where else to hold such an event, but on one of Durbanville’s most prestigious wine estates, Hillcrest.
Hillcrest is home to one of the most beautiful event hosting venues, the Quarry. The Quarry boasts beautiful rolling lawns and a crystal clear lake, the ideal spot to host a “Anything that Floats” race. The safety of this event will be closely monitored by the Melkbos National Sea Rescue Institute who will benefit from all proceeds of this event.
Live Rock and Blues bands will keep all entertained with Rock ‘n Roll DJ’s keeping the crowd rocking throughout the day while rivers of beer will keep your thirsts quenched. Full bar facilities will be available throughout the course of the event. Gates will open at 10am so that you can patch any holes in you homemade craft before you set sail, and will close down at 8pm as the Cape Town sun sets.
Bring the Family along on December 8 for a great day out. This is also a great opportunity for corporates to host your year-end function or team building event.
