|DISCOVER THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF BEER
How long has beer been around?
100 years. Maybe 200 years? Try 6 000 years.
Visit the fun-filled showcase of brewing at the South African Breweries World of Beer in Newtown, where you will be able to trace the evolution of beer over 6 000 years and discover the magic of making beer and making friends.
For Just R10 per person, the SAB World of Beer offers a very exciting and informative beer tour that allows visitors to trace the journey of the golden brew from ancient Mesopotamia through Africa and Europe to its place in modern society. Daily tours, hosted by professionally trained tour guides take you back in time to a turn of the century pub in Johannesburg's mining camp and a traditional Soweto shebeen. Furthermore, the intricacies of the brewing process are revealed in a climatically controlled greenhouse, where hops and barley are grown side-by-side and the art and science of brewing is demonstrated in a full-scale interactive brewhouse.
At the end of the tour, visitors are invited to sit back and relax in the pub at The Tap Room and enjoy two complimentary beers or soft drinks of their choice. Pub lunches are also available. On their way out, visitors are welcome to visit the Tankards & Togs gift shop, where they will be able to find the perfect gift for colleagues, friends and family.
Open Tuesday to Saturday 10am to 6pm
