About Soweto Beer Festival

Our Wonderful Journey.

We are 17 years old! The Soweto Beer Festival South Africa’s longest consistently running beer festival! It started in 1999 and has not skipped a year since. Through the vision and perseverance of Godfrey and Gloria Mautloa the beer festival has gone from strength to strength. The festival initially started as a promotional event to draw clientele to their venue, Masakeng and promote the wide variety of beer offerings they had. They wanted to do something different from the usual wine and whisky promotions that where a rage in the main market. The Soweto beer festival has become an iconic lifestyle event and a much anticipated annual event in Soweto.

The event has developed beyond attracting mainstream beer brands and has been a catalyst in introducing premium brands to the local market. Brands such as Stella Artois, Peroni and Soweto Gold were all launched at Soweto Beer Festival.

The impact of the Soweto Beer Festival has had had a far reaching impact and has inspired many similar events in Soweto and beyond including Soweto Wine Festival, Maftown Beer Festival, Kutitura Beer Festival (Namibia) ,Graceland Casino Beer Festival, Mogale City Beer Festival, Ekurhuleni Beer Festival and many more.
