The beer festival in Morocco


The beer festival in Morocco stillborn

The first edition of the beer festival announced in Morocco will not take place. Local authorities in the district of Casablanca just published a press release announcing its cancellation. The project is stillborn.

The exact reasons for this ban are not mentioned. “This event does not respect the rules and laws and the prohibition to hold any activity related to the sale of alcoholic beverages,” wrote the organizers. The statement also specifies the “withdrawal of all advertising related to the event.”

It should be noted that this beer festival, a first in North Africa, was organized from October 8 to November 8 in Casablanca. This is Morocco’s Breweries who were behind this initiative. The event was supposed to be spread over several establishments of the economic capital. But after its announcement, much controversy launched by Islamists who have even uttered death threats if ever the event is held. The Moroccan power quickly gave in announcing its cancellation!
