Gold for Roof Draught

02 June 2019 | Business

Following the gathering of more than 150 brewers, beer enthusiasts and industry experts in Cape Town for the African Beer Cup, where 143 beers from 11 African countries showed what they are made of, Windhoek-based Roof of Africa's Roof Draught won gold in the category for Pale Bitter European Beer.

What makes this feat more impressive, is that Roof of Africa managed to secure one of only 16 gold medals awarded in the 28 categories.

All beers in the competition were judged by two different panels based in Cape Town and Johannesburg, based on the highest BJCP (Beer Judge Certification Program) guidelines, which places a strong emphasis on stylistic accuracy.

“In order to get the best results possible, all beers in the competition were judged twice by two different panels,” said competition co-founder and director Shawn Duthie.

This award is a huge honour for Namibia and the public is more than welcome to try a Golden Draught as it is now lovingly called by Roof of Africa enthusiasts.

Roof Draught is brewed according to the “Reinheitsgebot” of 1516 with only the finest hops, malted barley and Nau-kluft pure spring water. It is brewed at the Roof of Africa Hotel & Restaurant and guests can experience live brewing while enjoying their meal or a drink.
