I don't know if they are made in Africa, but there isMichael_Currie said:I have never seen an African made beer, wine yes, beer no. Maybe I am just missing it? Any suggestions?
ooo ja windhoek.......must beFancy meeting another Afrikaner here Sad that Black Label is our only export beer, what about Windhoek Larger?
I think it might be this tuskers as mentioned belowhttp://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/822/2563There 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.
You can get Tusker at Foodery in Philadelphia, I am pretty sure they have other African beers too.
When I was in Africa, I drank some Tusker in Kenya and we got some South African beer, Oranjeboom, I believe. That was long enough ago ('64) that I don't even know if those are around any more.I have never seen an African made beer, wine yes, beer no. Maybe I am just missing it? Any suggestions?
I stand corrected. Not South African, but Kenyan. It was Tusker. Was a very grainy hay tasting light lager if I remember. Cold on tap in the middle of the desert though and I'd pay and arm and a leg.When I was in Africa, I drank some Tusker in Kenya and we got some South African beer, Oranjeboom, I believe.

Update: Decided to go check it out, and evidently Tusker is alive & well (East Africa Breweries, Ltd.) and is exported to the UK. But memory failed me with the Oranjeboom....either that or I had some, but have forgotten its origins. It's actually a Dutch brew.
Dont know about that,.........but check this outThere's an Ethiopian joint in Milwaukee that has Bedel, St. Georges and Castel (all Ethiopian) and Tusker (Kenya). All are pale lagers or czech-style lagers. Tusker's largest shareholder is InBev. Castel and St. Georges have a French parent company. Bedel is owned by Heineken.
the funny thing is that SABmiller ( a south african co. ) owns or collaberate with most of the brands that the people over there drink?You can buy Castle Lager in several countries in Europe, as well as Australia. South African liquor outlets don't import much American beer. Almost 90% of all beer imports are European or from the East, to be fair we don't see much African stuff either...it's incredibly difficult to even get Zambezi, which comes from our neighbor!
