Bloemfontein - A man has been killed over a few sips of beer in Thabong in the Free State, police said on Monday.

Sergeant Tlalanyane Pakela said the 20-year-old man refused when asked to share his beer on Sunday afternoon.

"He told the suspect to buy his own beer as he was not going to share with him."

A 28-year-old man who had made the request pulled a knife and stabbed the beer drinker in the neck. He died on the scene.

The attacker was arrested, and was expected to appear in the Welkom Magistrate's Court on Tuesday.
