Cape Town Bierfest 2016

South Africa's biggest beer festival just got bigger for 2016! Now housed in a 4000 seater Bavarian Brauhaus adorned with authentic décor from the Motherland, Bierfest Cape Town takes place on the weekend of 4 -6 November 2016 at the Newlands Brewery.

The Bierfest, which has grown exponentially since its inception, has jugs-upon-jugs beer up for the drinking. As Always, the event is sponsored by South African Breweries and aims to bring not only Bavarian beer, but the cuisine and way of life to Cape Town. 

Expect the stomp-inducing tubthumping tuba, courtesy of the Oompah band. If you're up for some Oktoberfest-inspired activities, test your strength and skill against an array of traditional challenges, including beer pong, cow milking, an array of audience participation games and 'best dressed' competitions.

Weaving their way between benches and beer-fuelled bodies will be a bevy of waitresses dressed as Bavarian barmaids, outfits made complete with puffy sleeves and bodices. When it comes time to rehydrate and line your stomach, the same barmaids-cum-waitresses will bring you German dishes from a menu featuring Deutsch Fleischsalat (meat salad), Bratwurst and Bockwurst (sausages) and chips, and rotkohl(red cabbage) among other foreign delights.

An exciting way to experience Bierfest is to book a table but if you want a table, it’s advisable to book in groups of 6 or 12.
