We are very happy to be able to confirm that we will have a Beergarden SA stand at the new and exciting weekly Neighbourgoods Market opening in Braamfontein this weekend. You will meet the wonderful Inge Tinzmann-Jooste who will take you through the beers on offer, and from now on have a place that you can go to every week to savour all that is fresh and real!
The award-winning Neighbourgoods Market at the Old Biscuit Mill in Cape Town has been a tremendous success over the last 5-years (“Hands-down, they’re the best suppliers of local, innovative fare.” Pete Goffe-Wood – 2011 SAB Eat In Produce Awards) and I am sure that we will continue to see this awesome concept market grow every year now that its expanding. (The Old Biscuit Mill is definitely on my top list of “Things To Do in South Africa!” Scotty Mac – founder of Dassant Baking Mixes, USA)
Part of the reason why there has been such a growing interest in craft beer in Cape Town can be attributed to this market and all the real beer stands that have been able to present their product to willing and hungry (or should I say thirsty) buyers. It is relaxed yet energetic with vibe and always very busy! I’m sure Johannesburg will embrace it in the same way.
The Neighbourgoods Market is situated in the heart of the city precinct of Braamfontein (73 Juta Street) will take up 2 floors of this landmark building. The second floor will also feature an extensive rooftop viewing area over the heart of the inner city.
Some of the high quality traders will include ourselves, the Beergarden SA, & Union Breweries, Origin Artisan Coffee Roasters and Nigiro Teas, Cheese Gourmet, Fine & Raw Chocolates, Le Petit Cochon, The Chacuterie & Richard Bosman Quality Cured Meats, Merchants & Makers, Buffalo Ridge Mozzarella and Lazanou Organic Vineyards.
We will be featuring real beer from Camelthorn Brewing Company (Namibia), real cider from Everson’s Cider as well as the garagiste range of William Everson’s Wines (Grabouw) and the award winning Bloemendal wine range (Durbanville hills).
The Market will run every Saturday from 09h00 – 15h00 with special calendar events throughout the year such as the We Love Real Beer Festival and the Barrel & Vine fest.
