It’s Time to Reveal What’s in SA Logue’s Fridge

(Note: I will drink a few of SAB’s international beers, such as Pilsner Urquell, and will also sip Amstel that’s brewed in Holland. Glad we sorted that out.)

Tafel is brewed by Namibia’s Nambrew, which adheres to German purity standards (unlike SAB, which adds corn to nearly all its beer, barf). As a lager, it’s an exceedingly enjoyable refreshment. It’s light, it’s tasty, it’s got suitable levels of alcohol (4%), and if you drink it you’re member of an exclusive and very priveleged sect, most particularly because it’s not available in SA bars and restaurants, SAB having a distribution monopoly down here. But you can find it in most bottle stores, and then impress everyone by practicing B.Y.O.T.L.
