How It Works

  • Collect a free beer.

By presenting your passport, you’ll be hailed as a Beer Trooper, granting you access to exclusive rewards that offer a tantalising glimpse into South Africa’s vibrant beer culture as never experienced before.

Gauteng Participating Stores

Moreover, the Beer Passport is conveniently divided into five distinct regions for easy navigation: Johannesburg, West Rand, Tswane, Sedibeng, and Ekurhuleni. Participating Gauteng bars include Capital Craft in Pretoria, Labora Yard, Irish Pub, Molly Malones, and Gilroy Brewery, among others.

Some T’s and C’s

Free Beer: The beer Troopy has been able to arrange a free beer at each destination at the generosity of the brewer. The terms of the free beer are at the discretion of the brewer. It might be a small taste or a full beer or only with a meal.

Beer Tour Buses are a No! No! A carload of mates is okay. The Beer Passport is not designed to encourage pub crawling.

Additionally, when you visit their partner destinations please stay a while, enjoy a meal, buy a few rounds. Have some fun!
