November marked the first ever #AfricaThroughBeer experience in Uganda where in collaboration with SAB world of beer we hosted a group of 5 winners from South Africa who traveled with us to Uganda to explore East Africa’s adventure capital, find amazing brews and learning more about beer.
The winners had to visit SAB World of beer for a beer tour in order to stand a chance to visit Uganda with us.

SAB World of Beer is Africa’s only beer destination. Situated in the heart of Newtown, Johannesburg. The beer museum takes you on a journey of beer brewing from the Nubians in Egypt down to South Africa uncovering the fascinating brewing through a fun, informative and interactive tour.

The museum doesn’t offer beer tours only. They also have world-class events venues for all your eventing requirements. You can visit the World of Beer Tap Room which serves amazing pub-style meals, amazing views of Newtown and of course beers on tap. Here you will also find some of the beers from various African countries.

There are monthly food and beer pairings where you get to learn more about the various AB-inBev brews and how they are best complemented with certain foods. The food and beer pairing is a 5-course meal accompanied with various beers and ciders and it is open to all that love and beer and those who would love to learn more about beer. The beer pairings are guided by an expert brewer.
