KA­LA­HA­RI CRAFT BEER –

Beer to quench a de­sert thirst

SA Jagter Hunter - - INHOUD -

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.
