Johannesburg's SAB World of Beer is a museum dedicated to beer, run by South African Breweries. Opened in 1995, the World of Beer is an interactive beer museum tracing the history of the drink in Africa. The exhibits begin with the earliest known references to beer, roughly 5,000 years ago in Egypt and Mesopotamia. In addition to the history of beer, visitors also learn about the beer-making process in different parts of the world.
Tours end in the Tap Room, where visitors can sample South African Breweries' beers and enjoy some snacks while looking out over Newtown.
SAB World of Beer is located in the Newtown neighborhood in central Johannesburg. The museum is open Tuesday-Saturday from 10am-6pm, with the last tour departing at 5pm. Admission is SAR95 for adults, SAR85 for seniors and students, SAR30 for children 17 and younger. Beer samples and a souvenir glass are included with the tour.
