Brew Menu


This is the most expansive and diverse list of breweries we have ever had the pleasure of bringing you at the Clarens Craft Beer Festival. There will be beers you know, there will be more you don't. Most of these you will never find on a shelve anywhere near you and over 30 of them were brewed exclusively for this festival. Enjoy them folks!

How does it work?

All brews marked with an asterisk symbol are speciality brews unique to the festival, each brewer is permitted 8 taps. Expect to find one or two hidden gems not on the list at the stands as these may have been December specials which were saved for the show. Feel free to have a chat with the brewer at the stand, samples are given at the brewers discretion.
