The Cheers Beer Festival will be hosted at Emperors Palace, which promises to tantalise taste buds for one day only on 11 June 2016 in the beautifully manicured gardens at the 5-star D’oreale Grande hotel. The craft beer and gourmet food extravaganza will focus on the craft liquor industry throughout South Africa with an emphasis on showcasing the talent of brewers, distillers and producers of quality craft liquor that will bring them together under one umbrella.

The Cheers Beer Festival will be an interactive and experiential platform where visitors can sample and experience a multitude of beers produced by smaller micro-breweries. Along with the craft beer industry, the event will introduce gourmet street food options to pair with the beer, as well as live entertainment. This a great opportunity for beer connoisseurs and for those who would like to experience something unique from the craft breweries across the country.

Some of the brewers displaying their wares are Brothers Brewery, Soweto Gold, Mogallywood Brewery, The Great Railroad Brewery, Food in Mind, Heidelberg Brewery, Dragon Ginger and Swagga Bewery.

In addition to the live entertainment, the South Africa versus Ireland rugby game at 17h00 will be screened live on a big screen in the garden. So stay for the game and support the Bokke while savouring some of the best craft beer and a variety of tasty festival food.
