With that said, we had a quick chat with the guys behind Drayman’s Brewing:

Drayman’s has been around for more than 20 years, how do you stay relevant in the expanding craft beer scene in South Africa?

We stay true to ourself. Producing quality German beer 24/7 is the main objective. We do what most people forget while they are posting a facebook ad- we let our beer do the talking.

What beers can the fans expect from Drayman’s at Capital Craft Beer Festival?

We will have all our festival favorites on tap – Berghof, Altstadt Weissbier, Dussel Altbier, India Pale Ale, Honey Mead, Jolly Monk and our special festival beer – Payottenland Lambic Beer (Only 200 glasses available on the day).

What makes Capital Craft Beer Festival such a fun event for you?

It is on our home turf – 1km from the brewery. The festival is well organized, the bands are lit and the variety of beers on tap is out of this world.

Which other beers are you keen on trying out at the festival?

We are keen on trying beers from Hazeldean Brewing co. , Leaky Tap Brewery and The Standeaven Brewery.

Why do you think craft beer festivals are a necessity in South Africa?

It creates variety. How boring would this world be if we all liked the same things?
