The journey of beer
Tuesday, October 6th, 2015
From its humble beginnings in 1895 – when Charles Glass first started brewing at the Castle Brewery in Johannesburg – SAB’s beer has brought people together.
Even in the brewing process, it all comes together naturally.
Hops grow in summer and barley in the winter. Both are harvested once a year. Take a look at the long (and often complex) journey undertaken by barley – the building block of beer – hops, which gives beer its distinctive bitterness and aroma.
SAB beers are made with different mixes of barley, hops and maize to give each its distinctive balance of bitterness and drinkability.
