Newlands Brewery is the oldest operating brewery in South Africa. Originally called the Mariendahl Brewery, and later the Ohlssons Cape Brewery, it was founded on its current site in 1820 and has established a brewing tradition of quality and excellence that still continues.

Today, Newlands Brewery crafts international award-winning beers, using time-honoured brewing methods, Newlands spring water and only the finest golden grains and local ingredients. South African Breweries has run successful brewing operations on the same grounds and the brewery is now classified as a “medium-sized brewery”, with the capacity to produce 435 million litres of beer per year for distribution in the Western Cape. Newlands Brewery was granted National Heritage Status in 1995 and brews eight award-winning and famous beer brands, producing about 1.5 million beers every day.

A highlight of a trip to Newlands Brewery is a fully guided tour, where beer lovers are invited to experience a taste of brewing history, followed by a look into modern-day brewing methods. The old Malt House and the Mariendahl Tower Brewery offer a historic setting to explore the creation of beers, and these National Heritage Monuments have remained unchanged since their erection as the original brewery foundation buildings in 1820.

The tour 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 tasting and a few pints in the brewery’s historic Letterstedt underground pub.

The brewery is located at the foot of Devil’s Peak and is neighbour to Newlands cricket stadium and Newlands rugby stadium. Tours take place weekdays at 10am, 12pm and 2pm and Saturdays at 10am, and cost R30 per person, which includes two free beers in the underground pub.
