Santos Express Train Lodge hosted
the very first Mossel Bay Beer Fest in collaboration with South
Cape Breweries on
27 & 28 September 2013. They are the first Micro Brewery in Mossel Bay and
showcased their Glenhoff Draught brand. South Cape Breweries brew according to
`Reinheidsgebot` method to ensure purity, clarity and excellence. South Cape
is a true `Green` Brewery and the Glenhoff brand can currently only
be found in a handful of
choice establishments in the region, including The
Fork and Train Restaurant at
Santos Express Train Lodge.
Visitors to the Beer Fest enjoyed cold beer, good food and live entertainment, as well as
The Rosenheim German Deli hosted the food stall, where traditional
German delicacies were available. Guests enjoyed traditional Bavarian pretzels, while
Josie Domingo and the Mossel Bay Community Band played traditional Bavarian Oompah
music with a South African twist. The
Community Band, formed in 2006, is comprised of
around 50 community members.
The Band has received many accolades and achieved
first place at the Western
Cape Band competition for the last three years.
