African Beer Emporium Sneak Peek

African Beer Emporium December Sneak Peek
African Beer Emporium – December Sneak Peek

If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram you’ll probably know how much I love beer, and sometime in December last year I was lucky enough to be invited to check out the African Beer Emporium (ABE) at a sneak peek event. Well… the guys at ABE are doing another sneak peek event and this time you get to go as well (I’m giving away tickets to Saturday’s party a little later on in this post).

ABE is located at 012 MARKET ON MAIN… that is 385 Helen Joseph (Church) Street in Pretoria, and before you all jump up and down about not wanting to visit the Pretoria CBD… I’ve been there a few times now, and they have secure parking and the venue is #NextLevel… there’s no reason for you to avoid it.

In their owns words:

African Beer Emporium (ABE) is an upmarket restaurant/bar which will focus on delivering local and foreign visitors a taste of Africa in an unprecedented way and with exceptional style. We will stock a large variety of African beers and our menu will feature signature dishes from all over the continent. ABE is the brainchild of the creators of Capital Craft and this latest venture is the spearhead of the 012 Central initiative which aims to bring the inner city back to life.

So come on down to African Beer Emporium on the 30th January and check what the fuss is about. Doors open at 10h00, and if it’s anything like the last party, the live bands and DJs are gonna keep you entertained until late into the night. For more info you can check the facebook event: ABE Sneak Peek Event

I mentioned free tickets?

Simply RT the tweet below and on Thursday morning I’ll pick someone at random who is gonna walk away with a double ticket to the party on Saturday. Easy!

Beer Tasting Challenge

Beer Tasting Challenge
Beer Tasting Challenge

I was hanging out at Capital Craft (aka my office) the other day and the barman was telling me about a buddy (Wim van Vuuren) that claims he is the “beer tasting guru”. OK, fair enough, Wim works for Jack Black and knows a lot about his beer, but I spend enough time drinking the stuff, that I believe I can take him on.

1 beer led to another and before you know it, the guys at Capital Craft agreed to sponsor the beer if I challenged him to a beer tasting. Who says ‘No’ to FREE BEER? #ChallengeAccepted! OK, technically it’s a #ChallengeAcceptedToPoseAChallenge, but that just seems awkward.

So Wim, if you really are the “Beer Guru”, put your beer where your mouth is:


Pick a date, and I challenge you to a beer tasting at Capital Craft… and just to make things a little more interesting: The loser has to wait on tables, in a french maid outfit, for 2 hours. Keen?

"Beer Guru"
“Beer Guru” prefers pink champagne

P.S. This is going to be TOO easy… I searched Wim’s profile for a pic of him drinking beer, and the closest I could find was one where our “Beer Guru” is sipping on some pink champagne.

Follow Wim (@wimpvanvuuren) and I (@BraaiBoy) on twitter to see if he accepts the challenge, and more importantly what the outcome is.

 

 

*Sponsored Post Notice: Besides sponsoring the fuel (beer) for this challenge, this post was not paid for by Capital Craft, Jack Black or any of the other brands I mentioned.

Win a VIP Bierfest experience

Bierfest

It’s not often that you’ll find me around a braai without a beer in my hand, so imagine my joy when folks at the TOPS at SPAR Bierfest noticed that and wanted to reward me with an “Über Table” for myself and 5 mates including Bierfest entry, premium seating, bier tasting, Glam Cam photo, costume apron (his/hers), free beer and a JIGUJA Detox drink to wrap things up.

#WINNING!!! That is… until I heard that I had to be there on 9, 10 or 11 Oct… which unfortunately happens to be when we leave for the US on our annual #BraaiUSA competition tour. The FOMO that set in was so bad, that I even considered checking in at the airport, popping into the bierfest for an hour, and then heading back to board my plane.

Fortunately sanity prevailed, and asked the organisers if I could give the prize away to you guys instead… and they agreed, and then just to make sure you #DrinkSmart , you will also win a 1-year GoodFellas SmartChoice membership!

What’s the Bierfest about?

BierfestYou can visit www.bierfest.co.za for all the info and to buy tickets… but in short:

In its 5th year now, the TOPS at SPAR Bierfest is voted as the “next best thing” to actually being at ze historic Oktoberfest in Munich- Germany, Bierfest is SA’s largest annual national festival of Bavarian bier culture. Since 2011, Bierfest has been carting its kegs to Durban, Johannesburg und Cape Town from September through to November each year.

Bierfestarians can look forward to participating in a range of traditional Oktoberfest-inspired games between biers (when last did you put your cow milking skills to the test?), on-ze-spot competitions (hint: dress-up on theme as best you canthere are trips to the actual Oktoberfest in the offering), and other audience participatory activities (if hoisting 1-litre steins of frothing bier to your lips repeatedly and singing along to German folk-song isn’t enough “participation” for you!).

Don’t want to miss any of the #RWC2015? Fear Not! The games will be shown on the Bierfest big screen!
