On your visit to the home of your favourite beer, you'll journey back to the early-1800s, when Jacob Letterstedt built the original Mariendahl Brewery, the country's oldest commercial brewery.
When The South African Breweries took ownership in 1956, the pick of the original buildings - the old Malthouse, Oasthouse and Mariendahl Tower Brewery - still stood proud and beautifully preserved.
In October 1995, they were granted National Heritage status and stand as monuments to a proud tradition dating back to 1820, like stories told in stone.
You wouldn't want to miss a visit to the Jacob Letterstedt Pub or bump into Charles Glass either. Then there's the memorabilia store, dressed in history and fan gear; you'll meet people who will tell you renowned stories of yesteryear, and you'll tour one of the most impressive breweries on earth.
