  • Wonderful place to see the background to brewing from the early days. The guide is very knowledgeable and courteous. You get a bottle of beer during your tour. At the end you have 2 free drinks from the SAB range with a snack. Make sure you try the Castle Milk Stout Chocolate. It's an amazing drink from the Castle range. Have a great time, cheers! You also get to keep the glasses for free.
  • The tour was amazing and actually not at all what I expected. There were very interesting facts and it was an experience that taught me a lot about not only beer, but culture and history as well. Loved the free glasses and drinks vouchers too!
  • Nice tour and wonderful beers. The tour takes around an hour and you also get 2 free drinks with it! They take you through the history of beer, the manufacturing processes, various different types of beer and you also get to taste the African local beer made from Sorghum! Highly recommended.
  • Great tour for all. Would have like a more verbal tour as a small bit is on video with little explanation of what I wanted to find out. Beer tasting and explanation was very good. And afterwards a few beers at the bar
  • Great place to visit... The staff is so helpful.. the tour guide was very patient and courteous to answer all questions. They provide a complementary glass as a memoir.. the tour plus beer tasting package is totally worth it.. perfect way to spend a good time..
