Darling Summer Festival


Come on Summer!

Get festive with us at the Darling Summer Festival. Why wait for Christmas to get your holiday vibe on? The beer and fun will be flowing at Darling Brewery in the village of Darling on Saturday, December 14.

Join Darling Brew and 7 guest breweries to party with us. They will be serving the best of their craft beers all day while the entertainment rocks around them. It’ll be cooler than Christmas.

The guys from Beer Country are coming on board to keep the fun Summer-simmering. Their unique blend of Beer, Food and Fire is all the excuse you need to crack a cold one and settle in for a jol.

Speaking of which we have confirmed the smokin’ Red Tape Riot and Congo Cowboys to take the stage. The spankin’ DJ Steak is confirmed to fill the day with music in between, so the Summer festival tunes will never stop.

No need to pack lunch. We’re setting up food stalls with all your favourite street food treats. Something for everyone, especially the kids. Our famous mega-jungle gym is a fixture at the brewery. We will also be bringing in a slippy-slide so the fun never stops for the little ones.

Tickets are R120 online through Webtickets right now. They will cost you R150 at the gate, so commit early. Price includes entrance and a commemorative Darling Summer Festival glass. Under 12s enter free while teens are R80 each and there’s no memorabilia included.

GUEST BREWERIES: Saggy Stone, Riot Beer, Loxtonia, Old Potter Brewpub, Black Eagle, Shields Indie, Beerworks
