ST Forts - 6km from Clarens



The annual Clarens Craft Beer Festival is situated in the centre of Clarens Village Square and takes place on the weekend of the 23rd February and 24th February 2018.

Clarens is one of those special small towns in the Free State located on the outskirts of the Golden Gate National Park. Clarens is “that” town where many folks fall in love with it's tranquil funky vibe straight away and the Clarens Craft Beer Festival creates a festive atmosphere bringing all the art and craft stores alive with beautiful people from all over the country.

Many local breweries bring out their best brews giving you a chance to taste award winning beers in the charming surroundings of colourful beer gardens whilst sampling traditional great German foods and tasty snacks. If you are interested in beer brewing methods, then this is a great opportunity to meet some extra ordinary brewers and discover the different brewing techniques each brand uses. Clarens Craft Beer Festival attracts thousands of people and popular brewers ensuring some exciting flavours to meet everyone's unique palette.
