Hello, I hope everyone’s week has been fabulous so far ? 🙂
Back to todays post…recently Graham and I were invited to attend the Capegate Craft Beer festival, I posted EVERYTHING on my stories so in case you missed it, its in the highlights section under events.
I have to admit, before this festival I enjoyed craft beer, however it would not be something I would normally drink, as you all know I absolutely love my wine, however after this festival and tasting so many delicious beers, I’m hooked !
It was held at the Capegate shopping centre in the underground parking lot and I really liked the venue , it felt completely separate to the mall itself, so we could enjoy a festival vibe with a huge crowd and good music whilst tasting all the beers and gin on offer.
Ok , so what can I say about the beers and gin…I actually really enjoyed all the different breweries and all the branding was quite unique like for example URBAN BREWING CO with the skulls as well as the gold packaging from VOLFAS ENGELMAN .
The Italian Job Brewery had a great weiss beer which was really delicious, so it does not surprise me that it is one of their biggest sellers as its light and so easy to drink.
5 Angels Gin fascinated me… the liquid is blue, so when you add some tonic or drink of your choice and it turns pink! I have never seen something like that before so of course I had to buy a bottle to take home with me. Let me tell you, that gin is delicious !
The Hamiltons stand was awesome, they had so many colourful cocktails, it definitely gave me some ideas of mixes to add with all my gin collections. How cute is ONE FINE BLONDE packaging from HOPMAN Brew ?
BOSTON Breweries did not disappoint, they were part of the brewery tour last week and we thoroughly enjoyed their beers especially THE NAKED MEXICAN
The Stellenbosch Brewing Co , have just launched CANN-O-BLISS Lager which contains CBD oil, it was unfortunately not available to try but I have heard its quite tasty and packed full of goodness. As for SHACKLETON BREWING CO, they offer a very unique ROOIBOS Vodka Iced Tea, which was absolutely divine.
The new WAGON TRAIL BREWERY @ ANURA was excellent, as can be expected from this award winning Wine farm. We were fortunate to visit the brewery last week for a private tour, so can highly recommend their beers and gin which was absolutely delicious, not to forget the scrumptious Cheese & Charcuterie platters which creates the perfect pairing. Graham and I shall definitively be back in the near future.
We also received a fabulous media gift a few weeks back in celebration of the Capegate craft beer festival which included some super tasty beers from NOON GUN as well as some GINNIC which Graham and I enjoyed recently over lunch with friends. Last but not least we got to try out a beer cocktail thanks to LILYPATRICK Brewery and White Water Gin…just add a shot of gin to a small glass of beer, garnish with lime and voila you have a very tasty cocktail 😉
I chose this outfit because if you saw in my last post I said I was still going to be rocking my cargos haha so here we are 😉 I paired them with a lime green sweater, floral sock boots and my new bucket bag , it was the perfect outfit for walking around and feeling super comfortable and chic at the same time.
A huge thank you to Cape Gate Centre and JackandJillcommunications for such a well run event, it was a full house with the best vibe, craft beer, gin and entertainment- definitely the best way to spend a Saturday 😉
