So after a slightly disappointing postponement last year, we are back on track for #craftgeeksinthecity. It’ll be the first event for the year and I am so excited about it.
This event is aimed at both craft beer novices as well as regulars of the scene. Whether you know how beer is brewed or not, this is for you.
We’ll arrive at Smack Republic! in Maboneng and begin the night with a bit of background about the guys, how they started and what drives them. We’ll do a brewery tour to see where the magic happens and learn a bit about the brewing process. Then we’ll do a tasting of their range. I’ll lead you on the tasting – what you can expect from the style in terms of aroma, flavour etc. We’ll also do a rating exercise.
After that… well it’s up to you! We have the brewpub to ourselves. We can sit and chat, drink more beers and generally enjoy the inner city vibes.
Tickets are R180 from Quicket and includes the tour, tasters and a small gift. There will even be a prize or 2 for interesting ratings, or popular social media posts.
Tickets are limited – so get yours now!
There will also be a limited, pre-arranged number of tickets at the door. I can only offer those to people who contact me directly. We need to have an accurate idea of numbers, so if this option appeals to you please email me at craftgeekSA@gmail.com to make sure you have a spot.
The event is the first, the pilot, of hopefully many exclusive brewery tours to come. Since it’s going to be the first event, I’d really love feedback leading up to and after the event. What could be better? What was great? What more would you want?
