Default Does any beer get exported from Africa?

I have never seen an African made beer, wine yes, beer no. Maybe I am just missing it? Any suggestions?

I don't know if they are made in Africa, but there is
Casablanca which comes from Morocco. I've had others but i can't think of any off the top of my head right now.

There was a beer here not too long ago that was a South African Beer. It wasn't very good. The top was all sticky and was oxodized from the trip over here. It had an elephant on it.

I had several good local made beers when traveling on business in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. They were somewhat like a Mexican lager. Have not seen them in the states though.

You can get Tusker at Foodery in Philadelphia, I am pretty sure they have other African beers too.

Tusker is also just a good beer, flat out.
