Newlands Brewery information
In the early 19th century Jacob Letterstedt built the Mariendahl Brewery in Newlands, a handsome building granted National Monument status that is now part of Newlands Brewery, owned by South African Breweries. Fascinating tours of the complex, including the chance to sample the various beers made here (which include Castle and Black Label), will give you an insight into large-scale beer making. The brewery hosted the inaugural Oktober Bierfest in 2011 and plans to make it an annual event.
