What’s new in 2017?
There will be a greater focus on ciders and the offering will be extensive, as the local cider industry has taken off over the past few years.
A corporate hospitality offering will be available for the Friday night, including a dedicated seating area, food and beer vouchers, dedicated host, as well as branding opportunity. Cape Town’s business set is invited to take advantage of the unique opportunity to host their year-end parties at CTFOB 2017. Corporate hospitality packages can be booked via Webtickets.co.za. Special discount is available for groups of more than 20 people.
While many of the now established brewers will return, there will be a number of brewers attending the festival for the first time. Everyone from the casual beer drinker to the beer sommelier will have the opportunity to sip on beers they’ve never tasted, styles they’ve never tried and to see how brewers are pushing the boundaries of beer more than ever.
CTFOB also has an established relationship with Uber, allowing attendees to travel to and from the event using a reduced rate.
Something for everyone
This year there will be a unique feel to each of the three days of the festival, from the ideal year-end function or post-work drinks event on Friday, to a day of sports and entertainment on Saturday, and finally a day focussed on the whole family, on Sunday.
Thursday 31 November
Thursday night will kick off the event, with the traditional Brewers’ Braai, which serves as a premier networking event for SA’s leading brewers. This event is closed to the public.
Friday 1 December
This year companies are encouraged to book their year-end functions at CTFOB. Enjoy the best in beer and food on Friday night after a final week of work. Companies have the opportunity to secure their own space on the night, including a dedicated space, a host, food and beer vouchers, as well as an opportunity to brand their area. Head to Webtickets to book a corporate hospitality package. Limited spots are available.
