It’s Africa Day and we’re celebrating, and you know a celebration needs beer to make it complete. And we’ve got a special giveaway for you. Tolokazi Beer is made under Brewsters Craft, a brewery that was founded by Apiwe Nxusani-Mawela a qualified brewmaster who worked for SABMiller before venturing out on her own and becoming the first black woman to own a microbrewery.
Tolokazi Beer is famous for being the first South African craft beer to be owned by a black woman and you can see the inspiration that runs through it. Everything about Tolokazi Beer is designed to be authentically African, from the brightly coloured patterns that make up the design of the bottle labels, to the ingredients, most of them sourced in South Africa.
The homegrown beer brand is giving away two mixed cases of the Tolokazi Beer range to celebrate Africa Day. Here’s what you need to do to win a case:
- Like and Follow Tolokazi Beer on Facebook and Instagram
- Like and follow ZAlebs on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter
- Comment on the giveaway social media posts with #ZAlebsTolokazi
- The winner will be selected and notified at the end of May
The most unique of the Tolokazi Beer range has got to be the Sorghum Pilsner, which is brewed with sorghum (amabele) the main ingredient and your Gogo’s umqombothi. Our second favourite is the Rooibos and Berry Cider – who knew that tea and apples could go so well together. There is also a Pale Ale, Pineapple Cider and a non-alcoholic Hibiscus Hop Brew for those who want to enjoy the beer vibe without the after-effects.
For a long time, South Africans breweries have been
trying to imitate European beer styles – it’s good to see that we’re adding our African flavour to the mix. We’re loving the new trend and hope it grows.
If you want to buy yourself a six-pack or case of Tolokazi Beer, you can get it online at the Brewster's Craft online store, Takealot.com
and wherever beer is sold.
