The 2014 Constantia Craft Beer Project took place at the False Bay Rugby Club last weekend and we thoroughly enjoyed our Sunday afternoon being out in the sunshine, sipping on beer and eating nosh from the various food trucks.
A huge range of craft beers were available as well as a few ciders and wines for the non-beer drinkers. Brewbucks were the official currency for the festival and were on sale at R100 per pack, which gave you 20 brewbucks (1 brewbuck = R5)
A glass of craft beer ranged from about R20-R30 (4-6 brewbucks) and a taster serving set you back 1 brewbuck (R5). Craft beer is generally more expensive than most beers so we weren’t too fazed but R5 per tasting is a little steep I think. I reckon a different charge per option should be introduced next year (like R100 per person for a whole day of tasting / or a flat out R25/R30 per glass of beer for non-tasters).
Food wise, there were awesome food trucks set up with delicious yummies… Burgers, Mediterranean sarmies/wraps, popcorn, gourmet sausage, pretzels, cheese boards, crepes.
It was great to see that there was a little something for everyone. Young and old were catered for and there were loads of families out for the day. They boys could catch up on the cricket inside the tent while groups of friends could find a spot out on the field while listening to live music. Beer experts would have been in a little piece of heaven with the variety on offer. All in all a very good day out and we will be back again next year 🙂
