Newlands Brewery, dating back to 1820 is the oldest operating brewery in South African and the home of great South African Beer.  Today, Newlands Brewery, brews 9 famous brands, each one specially crafted using time-honoured brewing techniques.

We believe the best way to find out more is to come for a fully guided #BeerExperience tour where you will discover our stories, gain insights into modern-day brewing methods and appreciate the craftsmanship that goes into our beers.  The tour, which takes about an hour and includes our speciality, small batch brewery – Newlands Spring Brewing Co. follows the journey of beer from its beginning as a grain, to its end as a well-crafted, ice-cold treasure, fittingly ending with a beer tasting and a couple of pints in the brewery's historic pub.


Looking for a gift for the beer-lover or a memento from your #BeerExperience tour? Step into our merchandise shop for a wide selection of beer-centric items, home pub "must-haves" and SAB & Newlands Brewery branded goods. The Brewshop is open Tuesday – Friday 09h00 – 16h00, Saturday 09h00 – 14h00 For more info and prices contact: 021 658 7255 or
