The much awaited annual Thousand Sensations Craft Beer, Spirits and Food Festival takes place on 15 & 16 September 2017 at the Wilderness Hotel in Wilderness.  With 40 craft brewers showcasing more than 170 handcrafted beers and ciders, and with craft spirits, gin, brandy, vodka, rum and whisky also in the mix this event will be a showstopper! Organiser of the event, Alewijn Dippenaar, again lined up a week’s worth of craft beer, spirits and food experiences at local restaurants leading up to the festival.

The pre-event craft beer and food pairing will be back by popular demand.  On 11 September from 19:00 to 21:00 guests will pair craft beer with the contemporary seasonal dishes of 101 Meade in George.  The four-star Turnberry Boutique Hotel is situated in the centre of the picturesque Klein Karoo town of Oudtshoorn and this establishment will host a food and beer pairing on 12 September from 19:00 to 21:00. The Blind Pig in Wilderness is no stranger to craft beer and guests will enjoy the pre-event food and beer pairing in their jovial atmosphere from 19:00 to 21:00 on 13 September.  The final pre-event pairing will take place at the four-star Oubaai Hotel on 14 September from 19:00 to 21:00.  Limited tickets to the pre-event pairings are available @ R150 each.

Crafty craft beer enthusiasts will be quick to work this one out…the two day Thousand Sensations Craft Beer, Spirits and Food Festival can be extended into a complete craft beer experience by attending the pre-event food and beer pairings! 

Entry to the festival is a mere R90 per person per day, and includes a 340ml branded tasting glass and a 500ml craft beer.  For more information stay tuned to Thousand Sensation’s broadcasting partner Algoa FM, pick up a copy of print partner George Herald, or contact Alewijn Dippenaar on 082 457 5675 or via www.thousandsensations.co.za , or facebook Thousand Sensations.
