Namibian beer wins gold medal

afrol News, 13 November - The "Tafel Lager" beer produced by Namibia Breweries Ltd won a gold medal in the category of "mild beers" at an international award ceremony in Nuremberg, Germany.

Today, the European Beer Star Award held in Nuremberg announced the winners of the world's best beers in 42 different categories. One of the gold medals, in the category "mild beers", went to Namibia Breweries Ltd for its Tafel Lager brand. This was the only award to an African brewery at this major event, organised by the Association of small and independent Breweries in Europe.

The Namibian brewery already has earned a big fame in Southern Africa, its brand "Windhoek Lager" being one of the most popular imported beers in South Africa.

The company has already received many international awards for its different brands, being one of Africa's most internationally renowned breweries. Most prestigious, however, was a 2005 award for the company's brand "Windhoek Light", which was officially crowned the world's best light beer during the Brewing Industry International Awards that year.

The Namibian brewery has a proud history, stemming back to the German colonisation of "South-West Africa". With German settlers and legislation - including the beer purity law of 1516 - beer was produced in the colony from 1904. The company was founded as the result of a merger of smaller German settler-controlled breweries in 1920.
