Detailed information on the brewing process is provided with encouragement to sample raw barley and hops. Enjoy complimentary beer at the end of your tour.

The World of Beer was established in 1995, an iconic year in South Africa’s history. It was the country’s first full year as a democracy, the year we came together as a nation to lift the Rugby World Cup trophy, and the year SAB celebrated a century of brewing mastery. To celebrate this milestone, the company opened what was then known as the Centenary Centre, a museum designed to showcase the history of South African beer. It was one of the first major investments made in the Newtown Cultural Precinct, ultimately paving the way for future developments in the area.

Former President Nelson Mandela officially opened the centre.
