Soweto’s own lager

CityPress - - Opportunity index -

Mad Mead Brew­ing Co, started by MSc chem­i­cal en­gi­neer­ing grad­u­ate and “chief beer of­fi­cer” Ndumiso Mad­lala, has pro­duced Soweto’s first craft beer – Soweto Gold.

“The first re­gional town­ship-branded clear craft beer” is tak­ing back the an­cient African art of beer-brew­ing. Be­cause the process is tra­di­tion­ally per­formed by women, Mad Mead trains only fe­male mas­ter brew­ers.

Mad Mead pro­duces its lagers and ales in Soweto it­self at the uBuntu Kraal Brew­ery in Or­lando West.

Its flag­ship lager is a dark, golden medium-bod­ied beer with “slightly hoppy fruiti­ness, low bit­ter­ness and a light, rounded, smooth fin­ish”.

With 5.2% al­co­hol, it is an al­lday drink­ing beer.
