About Newlands Brewery Tour

The Newlands Brewery in Cape Town was established in 1820, making it the oldest working brewery in South Africa. More than this, it produces some excellent beers and invites anyone over the age of 18 years to visit the premises, learn more about the process and ingredients, and sample a few excellent brews.

This National Heritage Site is full of interesting finds and delicious flavours. It produces nine different beers, which have become very popular amongst the local beer-lovers and international visitors alike. A tour of the brewery means learning the story behind the label, getting a sneak-peek into modern brewing techniques, and appreciating the time-honoured craft of beer making. The tour ends with a full beer tasting in the historic pub of the brewery, where a good few pints can be enjoyed amongst friends. The tour takes about an hour and includes the beer tasting and two free drinks per person.

The brewery shop stocks plenty of beery merchandise. These are fantastic keepsakes in memory of your tour, and they make great gifts for friends and family. This shop includes goodies with SAB and Newlands Brewery branding. It is open on Tuesday to Friday from 09h00 to 16h00, and on Saturday from 09h00 to 14h00.

Newlands Brewery is committed to minimising their footprint, and makes every effort to be as environmentally-friendly as possible. They actively recycle and reuse as much as possible, and always respect their resources enough to be wise with them.

Only people over the age of 18 are permitted to do the tour. Comfortable flat shoes are a must and the brewery is, unfortunately, not accessible to those in wheelchairs or making use of any kind of walking aid (including a walking stick).

Tours of Newlands Brewery are a fabulous way to combine culture, history and some of South Africa’s finest craft beers in one fun adventure.
