On 13 June 2015, Capital Craft will be hosting the third installment of the Capital Craft Beer Festival. Capital Craft Beer Festival is the premium beer festival for the country’s Capital City. Capital Craft brings together old traditions and new experiences. Join them at the National Heritage Site, Voortrekker Monument in Pretoria when they combine the age-old tradition of drinking beer with new and exciting musical acts and introduce you to a vast variety of local micro-manufactured brews. Micro-breweries have fast become the tasty and trendy alternative to commercially brewed beers. The painstaking efforts taken to brew and mature these specialist beers can be tasted with each and every sip. At the Capital Craft Beer fest, you will be able to sample beers by over 25 different micro brewers from all over the country. Capital Craft Beer Fest promises to be a well-executed and unforgettable experience. NB! The Monument charges R15 per car for parking. Please bring picnic blankets or camping chairs to sit on, no cooler boxes are allowed into the festival. At the gate you will get your ticket scanned, they will then give you an arm-tag, after that you will walk through the gate and be handed a mug and site map containing all the info of where to find the brewers and toilets. If you have token tickets your token ticket will be scanned and you will be given your tokens. They will be using a token system. How this works is that you buy tokens and then you can get beer with the tokens. 500ml beer will be +/-R30 and 250ml will be +/-R20. The brewers set their own prices. They will have card machines but please do bring cash (cash = not waiting for a debit transaction to clear so please bring cash). There are ATM machines at the Monument around the corner from the beer festival site. There will be an off sales area near the entrance where you can purchase bottles to take home. Token stand and off sales area will have card machines. BREWERS This year they will be hosting +25 Breweries with over a 100 brews on tap! 1. Aces Brew Worx 2. Agar’s Brewery 3. Belgian Beers SA 4.
