Yip! You read correctly. FOKOFPOLISIEKAR, in association with Sir Thomas Brewing Co, have made their own beer. I think it’s hilarious as it makes perfect sense: huge audience, rock stars, sunny beer in South Africa, voi la. And craft beer is so trendy right now. They’ll be launching 4 craft beers throughout the year. The first series is a 440ml ‘Blonde Ale’ and goes by the name, DAGDRONK (direct translation: Day Drunk), which was released in December 2014.
The other three craft beers will go on sale throughout the year. From:
02 March – 01 June, Autumn: IPA (Indian Pale Ale).
02 June – 01 September, Winter: Red Irish Ale, infused with Rooibos.
02 September – 01 December, Spring: Weiss beer.
To celebrate, they’ll be launching officially at the Assembly in February. If you’d like to win an exclusive tasting with them before the start of the launch and a set of double tickets to attend then tweet me or tag me on the Facebook post (comment section) with the following:
