KALAHARI CRAFT BEER –
Beer to quench a desert thirst
Kalahari Craft Beer, launched in Upington in the Northern Cape in January 2017, is one of the very first craft beers from the Kalahari. The word ‘Kalahari’ is derived from the Tswana word kgala, which means ‘the great thirst’, leading to the creation of a fine beer that would quench even the heaviest of thirsts in the hot desert.
Renier Baard, founder and owner of Kalahari Craft Beer, says: “We saw the opportunity to create a fine beer, exclusive to the Kalahari region, which draws inspiration from the life that has over thousands of years adapted to the harsh climate. We aim to bring something new and fresh to the people in the area, as well as tourists making their way to the Kalahari through Upington.”
The Kalahari Craft Beer portfolio currently includes two fine beers, each paying tribute to animals within the area: Gemsbok Lager and Puff Adder Weiss. The Puff Adder thrives in the extremely hot climate whilst the Gemsbok, the animal that has stood the test of time, adapts to the harsh climate with its extraordinary cooling system. * Enjoy the refreshing taste of Kalahari Craft Beer at the recommended retail price of R23.50 for the Gemsbok Lager and Puff Adder Weiss.
