BeerEx Africa 2024 – Bigger and better than ever

Launched in 2016, BeerEx Africa (formerly the Craft Brewers Powwow) was established to help boost South Africa’s burgeoning beer culture. The conference and expo have grown to attract brewers and beer enthusiasts from across the continent and in 2024 we’re expanding further. We’re moving to a new venue closer to Cape Town’s city centre, making it more convenient for beer lovers to access the event. For the first time, attendees can choose to attend just the expo or opt for a package including the one-day conference as well as the two-day expo, which showcases innovative products from local companies alongside major international suppliers. We’re also hosting evening networking events at nearby craft breweries.

BeerEx Africa is held in conjunction with the African Beer Cup, the biggest beer competition in Africa, attracting more than 250 entries from across the continent.

About BeerEx and what to expect
We’re moving to new premises close to the city centre to make the event easily accessible to more professional brewers, more homebrewers and more beer enthusiasts. The 2024 expo will feature more vendors than ever before and we’re also expanding the evening calendar to create more networking opportunities.
This isn’t BeerEx South Africa; it is BeerEx Africa and we welcome and look forward to greater participation from brewers across the continent – not just as delegates, but also as speakers, exhibitors and of course, as entrants in the annual African Beer Cup.
With interactive demos, free talks on the expo floor and a wider range of exhibitors, the expo will also be bigger than ever. Expect homebrewing workshops, social media competitions, packaging and pouring demos, meet the brewer moments, book signings and of course, plenty of beer tastings.
We’re managing ticket prices to keep BeerEx affordable and accessible to everyone with an interest in beer. Day tickets will be available for those wanting to attend just one session, while weekend combo passes will offer discounted deals to those joining for multiple days.

BeerEx Africa is a conference and expo dedicated to the world’s most popular alcoholic beverage: beer!
