Owner description: A fun filled guided tour through an interactive multi-media museum, exploring the rich history of beer and its South African story. End off with a cold pint in the Tap Room overlooking the city. The immersive tour explores the rich history of Africa's beer culture, transporting you from the tombs of Egypt to the mining townships of Johannesburg's pioneer days. You'll also get to taste traditional African beer, hold hop flowers in your hands, smell the different types of barley and peer into the great big wort kettle! Beer memorabilia and merchandise are also available at the adjoining shop, Tankards and Togs. Since being opened by former President Nelson Mandela nearly 20 years ago, the World of Beer has become one of the country's top attractions for foreigners and locals alike, winning SA Tourism's "Tourist Attraction Category Winner" for three consecutive years. It also houses a five-star conference and event venue. Visit experience it for yourself! Access SAB World of Beer is situated in the heart of the Johannesburg Newtown Cultural Precinct. It is within walking distance of the three major railway stations (Westgate, Braamfontein and Park Station) and conveniently located on one of the city's main taxi routes. Shuttle services from the Gautrain station can be arranged at a minimal cost.
