A very good experience. Good food, nice atmosphere and the real highlight (apart from the beer pairing), was the tour! Taking a walk through history was a pleasure.

Nearly 200 years of history, some modern, some old in one of the best locations on earth. How brewing was done 200 years ago, how it is done today, the history in the middle and some awesome craft beers to taste too. Dont miss this.

Went there with friends. Went through the entire plant, the packaging lines were the most interesting, the guide was well informed. The highlight was the beer tasting at the end

Went to Newlands Brewery ,really worth it,2 hours minimum as beer tasting and two free beers afterwards needs to be savored.Shop is reasonably priced and guide is knowledgeable and helpful ,I really recommend this to people who like beer.

The tour is very informative and probably great if you're in a smaller group - our total tour size was at least 30 people (which seemed excessive) so you missed out a bit of information if you ended up at the back of the group....More

A very interesting and informative experience. Our guide was knowledgeable and enthusiastic. I am a home-brewer and it was fascinating to see the similarities between my small operation and the huge scale of a large commercial operation. We loved the tour and beer tasting, and...More
