Seek compatibility. Beer and food combinations often work best when they have some flavour or aroma elements in common. The herby bitterness of hops in beer goes well...
Our story began on the banks of the Liesbeek River where Pieter Visagie first brewed beer in 1658. In the mid-1800s, Jacob Letterstedt built the original Mariendahl Brewery in Newlands. Upon his death, Anders Ohlsson was first in a succession of proud brewers to nurture the noble traditions and whose legacy is enjoyed to this day.
On the playing fields of Newlands, history and the record books keep being re-written. And every sip of the way, our legendary beers have stood testimony to the fact that when you spend so much time practicing, you eventually get rather good at it.
Our brewers at Newlands Brewery bring over 150 years of collective brewing experience from around the world, ensuring that only the finest beer is enjoyed from every keg, bottle or can.
