Newlands Brewery

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.
