Travel from the tombs of Egypt to the dusty mining town of early Joburg, and find out how beer transformed through the ages.

Our award-winning tour
Since the doors of the SAB World of Beer opened over a decade ago, the walking tour has been developed and perfected to give visitors a seamless glimpse into the history and culture of beer. You'll discover how the ancient Mesopotamians brewed their thick, sweet beer, how different recipes spread to countries in Europe, and how brewmasters from around the world defined some of the beers you know and love today.
You'll also learn about beer's fascinating history in South Africa, and get a glimpse of the timeless brewing processes used by SAB in creating some of its world-famous brands. Price: R65 (which includes two complementary beers after the tour).
We're open from Tuesday to Saturday, 10am to 6pm. Last tour starts at 4.30pm.
