Rated as the best beer in South Africa by the taste masters at ratebeer.com. A decidedly hoppy and bitter, moderately strong American India Pale Ale. Hop flavour is medium-high and will reflect typical American hop characters with citrusy, floral, resinous, piney and passion fruit aspects. 6%, 440ml bottle.
Dragon Brewing Co’s Fiery Ginger Beer stands out in an ocean of craft beer, because it’s not a craft beer in the sense of barley and hops. It is, however, a traditionally brewed, craft beverage and it packs a serious gingery punch. Sweetness is tempered by the tang of the ginger, creating a very moreish balance. 5%, 440ml bottle.
