The Hop and Vine Festival at Simons in Constantia is another great initiative from the crew at The Craft Beer Project. Simons is an amazing venue, and there will be 15 breweries to get stuck into, so come thirsty. And hungry. It’s taking place in a months time over two days, and you need to be there. If any of your friends are having birthdays or weddings over this weekend, break it to them gently that they will now have to postpone things for a week. They’ll understand.
