Real beer.  Have you tried it?  Until February this year, I had no idea that beer could be not only palatable, but downright splendiferous… I tentatively joined a Slow Food beer-tasting event at Brewers & Union, and my adult life was changed forever.  I still can’t stomach mass-produced, commercially sold ‘regular’ beer, but I love REAL beer.  Really.

The same way I never thought I’d like beer, I figured I’d never be going to a beer festival.  But this Thursday, I will be:

23rd SEPTEMBER 2010

Brewers & Union and Jack Black Beer have teamed up with The Neighbourgoods Market in Woodstock to present South Africa’s first Craft Beer Festival !
The event will draw on small, independently-owned breweries to unite under the banner of ‘Real Beer’.

Thursday 23 September (the night before Heritage Day public holiday), will see a collection of the Real Beer producers, foodie enthusiast and those that appreciate the art of craft brewing, joining together for an evening of indulgence.

Come along and show your support for ‘little guys’.

WE LOVE REAL BEER Craft Beer Festival
