The First Constantia Craft Beer Project festival

Looking for something to do this weekend?

There's no better way to spend a Saturday afternoon, than sipping artisanal small-batch, limited-edition beer – that's what we call CRAFT! But don't worry about your non-beer drinking girlfriend (who you should reconsider dating), there will be wine (from boutique and garagiste wineries) on sale too and slow food... Food stalls include the likes of Cape Mountain Charcuterie, Banana Jam cafe, Wicked Waffles and The Oyster Lady, plus others.
Breweries include the likes of Devil's Peak, Mitchell's, Boston Breweries, Brew Dog, Citizen, Stellenbrau, Anvil Ale and Camelthorn, plus others.

The Constantia Craft Beer Project will showcase 15 international and local craft breweries.
A new concept of 'brew bucks' (like coupons) is also being launched this festival which allows festival-goers a chance to buy tasters and food with their very own beer currency.
A picnic-like atmosphere on the lawns with crafts, arts and a fantastic line up of live entertainment will be available and little ones are welcomed. There will be a dedicated supervised area with activities including pony rides for the kids to enjoy.
The live music Line-up for the day includes:

- 12pm to 2pm Natasha Meister
- 3pm to 5.45pm Rivertones
- 7pm to 9pm Crimson
- 12pm to 2pm Natasha Meister
- 3pm to 5pm Rivertones

However, the most exciting news is that this won't be the last Craft beer Project to take place this year. The plan is to spread the love to other far-reaching destinations in the country (and of course to have a few more in Cape Town too. See highlighted below).
