If you’re a fan of limited edition beer and also partial to sipping for a good cause, this blog post is for you. African Queen Blonde Ale is now available on tap at Banana Jam Cafe. Brewed by a great big pile of lovely ladies for International Women’s Collaboration Brew Day, the hop-forward blonde ale features Weyermann malt and all South African hops. There is, of course, a limited amount of this one-off brew so get there fast!
But it’s more than just a refreshing pint – 50% of the proceeds from all African Queen sold will go to the Nonceba Family Counselling Centre in Khayelitsha. The centre provides support for victims of physical and sexual abuse as well as offering a community education programme, after-school programmes and a safe house for abused or at-risk children. In short, it’s an incredibly important cause and one that needs your support. And all you have to do to help is drink a pint or two of hoppy blonde ale.
All of the ladies involved in the brew would like to give a huge thank you to the sponsors:
