Hot Getaway Show quenched

Getaway Beers

The Beer Garden

It’s taken us a while to recover from last weekend’s Getaway Show held at Lourensford Wine Estate in Somerset West, but business waits for no man (or woman) and so, we’ve been running Into The Trade again for the last few days!

There’s been mixed reaction online as to how the show was received with some saying that there wasn’t enough food variety and the queue’s into the venue being too long, but we have only heard great things about our stand which we shared with Napier Brewery. As Craig Bradnick mentioned on Twitter, “@TheBeerGardenSA Best part of @GetawayShow was your stand. Rest of show was a disappointment.” That makes us happy! Continue reading

Weekend of events not to miss!

The beer garden

We smile so good cos our beer's so good!

We didn’t think it could get much busier than last weekend’s We Love Real Beer Summer Craft Beer Festival, but that was before this weekend came along! If it is not the perfect weekend to enjoy a couple of excellent real beers across the peninsula, then there never was one!

This weekend we have several teams that will be serving our wonderful beers at a whole lot of exciting events!

Liefmans ‘Cherry Beer’ was a hit!

We love real beer

Sunday 20 March saw the second We Love Real Beer Summer Craft Beer Fest 2011 at the Old Biscuit Mill in Woodstock and the first that we have been involved with. We had heard so much about it and were very keen to get some of our range of beers into the festival for Cape Town to enjoy – and we were not disappointed!

The Beverage Emporium stand

Serving happy people

The moment the gates opened at 12h00 there was a rush into the venue and it was game on! Beer lovers streamed in and within 10 minutes, we were serving beers like there had been a warning that Sunday was the last day of the world and everyone had better enjoy it! But it was Belgium’s Liefmans Fruitesse, or ‘Cherry Beer‘ as it was being called, that caused the ladies to stampede our stand! Continue reading

Drunk as a Monk? Abbey Beer’s best!

WLRB

And you?

Yesterday our membership to the group We Love Real Beer was confirmed and one of the beers that we will be presenting is the Mardesous Abbey Beer collection, produced by the Belgian Duvel Moorgat Brewery since 1963. What an awesome collection! Never mind that the three beers have a little more alcohol than the average, they each have amazing personalities and flavours!

Blonde & Brown

Blonde or Brunette?

It’s not the kind of beer that you take a 6-pack of to watch the rugby, because you probably won’t make the second half! The beautiful Blonde teases you at 6%; the sexy Brown is passionate at 8%; while the Triple is the one your mother warned you about at 10%! Continue reading
