Castle Lager

From its humble beginnings in 1895 when Charles Glass first started brewing it at the Castle Brewery in Johannesburg, Castle Lager has brought people together.

The new beer soon became popular among the hard-working, prospectors of the gold rush, and in 1889 one of Johannesburg's early newspapers, the Digger's News, declared it "a phenomenal success."

Today, Castle Lager is brewed in nine countries and regularly enjoyed in over 40 countries worldwide
