The Fascinating Ambience
As soon as you reach Clarens, the small town, country-living ambience will surely leave you mesmerised with its quaint charm. The small alleys and streets dotted with arty nooks and crannies will make you want to forget about the modern world. Not just the natural setting, the ambience is embellished by the boisterous revellers. Bikers in their manly leathers, hippies in skin-tight jeans and sunglasses, families with children – the diverse crowd truly adds a dash of spice to the Clarens Craft Beer Festival.
A Wide Variety of Brews

This year, in 2015, the fest is coming with an incredible array of crafted brews, ciders and more. We are talking ‘over seventy types’! More than 20 micro breweries will be part of the show. The list includes award-winning names such as Chameleon Brew House, Old Main Brewery, Cockpit Brew House, and That Brewing Company. If this does not get you off your feet to book tickets, wait till we get to the ‘extras’.
A good mug of beer is always great, but what if the delight is paired with a great band performance? Perfect, right?

Besides them, local musicians too, keep the visitors entertained and happily occupied with music all night.

There are also three boutique wineries for those who wish to taste the alternative. From German pub grubberies to waffle-houses, cafés and bakeries to proper meal eateries, you have all the options.
