The third annual Darling Winter Beer Festival is taking place on the 30th of June 2018.
Since the first DWBF in 2016 this event has fast become a ‘must do’ on the annual calendar – attracting young and old, with plenty on offer to keep everyone entertained.
This years DWBF offers live music from the Stone Jets, Sunset Sweatshop and The Gambles; great local artisinal food; children can play on the jungle gym, get their faces painted or decorate biscuits – and all within the secure Darling Brew premises.
This all-weather event is unique as it takes place inside the brewery amongst the fermentation tanks, with ample space for all, even if it is pouring with rain.
For this festival Darling Brew serves their beer from tank to tap – meaning it comes directly out of the gleaming beer tanks – bringing you the freshest beer that you have ever tasted. Several guest breweries will also be present at the Darling Winter Beer Festival. These include the Drifter Brewing Company, Black Eagle Brewing Co, Red Sky Brew, RIOT Beer, D’Cider, Yzer Bru Brewery and the Franschoek Beer Co.
