Craft Beer Festival, National Braai Day and other ideas for the 24th September …
Is everyone aware of the fact that FRIDAY, September 24th is Heritage Day or as it’s more fondly known, National Braai Day? That’s three short weeks away and we’ll all have a lovely long weekend to look forward to.
Now if you’re not planning a mini break away or, if like me you don’t have your first wedding anniversary weekend away (wasn’t I clever planning our wedding around the time of a public holiday?) then why not start the weekend off with a bang and head down to the Neighbourgoods Market on the 23rd September for the We LOVE Real Beer Craft Beer Festival! Sounds good doesn’t it?
Brewers, &Union and Jack Black Beer have teamed up with The Neighbourgoods Market (The Old Biscuit Mill) in Woodstock to present our country’s first ever Craft Beer Festival. The aim is to bring more of awareness for real, naturally brewed beers that are made with passion and care by small, independent brewers. The event hopes that these breweries will unite under the banner of ‘Real Beer’ and that the public will realise that there is more choice than the mass produced, industrialised tipple!
There will be something for everyone; a collection of Real Beer producers, food galore for food enthusiasts and a wealth of information on the art and craft of beer brewing. Sounds right up my alley!
I have another tip for you too. If you are planning on hosting a braai for National Braai Day and want something a bit different for the grill then get to the Willowbridge Slow Market, Stellenbosch Slow Food Market or the Earth Fair Market for a selection of delicious meat from Rudi’s Sausage Deli. We had six of Rudi’s lamb chops for dinner last night and had boerewors on the braai on Sunday afternoon and both were sensational – so sensational in fact that we are now on Rudi’s mailing list so we can choose our purchases ahead of the Saturday market! If you frequent the Earth Fair Market you can also buy lamb and beef straight from the Karoo.
So there you go, you have all the ammunition needed for a very happy Heritage Day weekend.
The doors at the Neighbourgoods Market open at 4pm and the festival ends at midnight.
