Events In SA: Food and Drink June 2019


South Africa’s beer and wine scenes are booming which is why it comes as no surprise that the food and drink events for the month of June are dominated by all kinds of shows and festivals for these enthusiasts.

Here are our pick for the events you don’t want to miss this month.

Capital Craft Beer Festival 

15 June | Pretoria

With three stages, 10 000 visitors, more than 40 brewers and over 200 beers on tap, this 7th annual Capital Craft Beer Festival promises to be as big and enjoyable as ever.

And while it is clearly a beer fest, there will be non-alcoholic drinks and drinks for non-beer drinkers as well. So, there is every reason to join in on the fun at Pretoria’s National Botanical Gardens.

If you are a wine snob (and proud of it), you will love this event. Held for one day only at the CTICC, and chaired by wine expert Michael Fridjhon, it gives wine lovers the chance to taste South Africa’s silver, gold and trophy winners from over 1 000 wines that were submitted to the Old Mutual Trophy Wine Show judging panel.
