South Africa has been home to the South African Breweries (SAB) since the company’s humble beginnings over a century ago in the midst of Johannesburg’s pioneering days of the gold rush. SAB history can be traced back to Charles Glass and the Castle Brewery that he started in 1888. Glass insisted that his brewery sell only the finest beers, which were highly sought-after by the 200 pubs that had sprung up in the city at the time. That level of quality has stayed with them since the beginning. SAB has grown into a landmark South African company since then, and are today the second-largest brewer in the world, an accomplishment that they are exceptionally proud of. During their earlier years, its team of visionary leaders had the dream of taking SAB from being a small player on the tip of the African continent and expanding its footprint across several continents.
The SAB Dream is to bring people together for a better world. Beer, the original social network, has been bringing people together for thousands of years. They are committed to building great brands that stand the test of time and to brewing the best beers using the finest natural ingredients.
