Who ever said beer is a 'man's thing', really needs to rise to the occasion. Beer might not beat champagne or a nice Cosmopolitan, but I tell you, there's nothing like an ice cold beer on a hot day or hangover! People interact with beer just as much as they do on wine or whisky, male or female.
Cape Town Festival of Beer is the first festival to bring people together to celebrate beer and the art of brewing. Cape Town will be having its first beer fest from the 25th to the 27th of November 2010 from noon till 10pm, on the fields of Hamilton's Rugby Club in Green Point.
Now, just to prove to you that beer isn't something that belongs to the male domain, I'm giving two lucky gals a chance to come party with me and my sister (and you know, we have fun everywhere we go). Your prize will include a ticket to the Oktober-Fest-style Festival and a little goodie bag. All you have to do is either Twitpic a picture of you with a beer in hand (remember to include me in your Tweet) or e-mail me your picture. Every picture is an entry, so be creative to stand out from the rest. Leading up to the big day, I'll put some of the best pictures on my blog. So frauleins, if you like beer, festivals or a good party, then this giveaway is for you!
What to do at the Festival? If you're into Rugby, the final Springbok international game of the season will be screened live in the Carling Black Label tent. For the food-lovers, there will be a braai and cooking-with-beer competition, judged by Jan Braai. Furthermore there will be tug-of-war competitions (if you're feeling brave), live performances, food stalls and of course, loads of beer tasting. Just think: traditional South African festival.
And if you don't win? You can buy a ticket to the festival here or visit the website for more information. You can also follow Cape Town Festival of Beer on Twitter.
