Discover Newtown: it could be a win-win experience

Meet and greet Gambrinus, the "King of Beer" who was a Belgian duke in the 13th century, at the SAB World of Beer entrance. Snap a pic. Taste umqombothi, a traditional African beer. Snap a pic. Be sneaky and pour yourself a beer in our Tap Room. Snap a pic. It's that easy ...

Have your camera or cellphone ready when visiting the SAB World of Beer from now until 15 January 2018 and you could win a #MyNewtown experience for two worth more than R1 600.

The weekend experience, from the Saturday morning to the Sunday afternoon, includes the following:

  • 10am: A World of Beer tour for two, which consists of a 75-minute guided beer tour, a souvenir glass, and two complimentary drinks for each person and light bar snacks
  • 12pm: A Bite Club experience at Work Shop New Town, which includes entrance, entertainment and a red beef burger with potato skins from the Potato Shed restaurant
  • 6pm: A full traditional African dinner with entertainment at Potato Shed
  • 10pm: Accommodation at City Lodge Hotel Newtown, including breakfast
  • 10am (Sunday): Entrance to The Station Regional Market after breakfast

We will also be giving away three prizes consisting of a beer tour and beer tasting for two during the course of the #MyNewtown campaign.

All you have to do to stand a chance of winning is take a picture completing one of the three World of Beer challenges mentioned above and share it on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook, tag us and include the hashtags #MyNewtown and #VisitWorldofBeer.

There are also prizes up for grabs for completing challenges at several other Newtown hangouts, too:

  • Take a selfie in front of Work Shop New Town, post the pic, tag us, say what your favourite shop is, and include the hashtags #NewtownChallenge and #MyNewtown
  • Take a pic of yourself doing something crazy at The Station, post it and include the hashtags #MyNewtown and #TheStationZA
  • Take a creative pic at City Lodge Hotel Newtown while having a drink or meal at the hotel's cafe, post it and include the hashtag #MyNewtown
