Protecting the Namibian Craft Beer Trade

Be a part of the Namibian Craft Beer Trade!

Camelthorn Brewing Company (CBC) highlighted its milestones recently and stated that the company has a promising business perspective albeit challenges it has faced.

Camelthorn Brewing Company has set up a “Protect the Craft Beer Fund”. This is an innovative tool for Camelthorn ambassadors to support the craft beer market and receive more beer for their buck.

The fund will be limited to 1000 participants and was launched with the aim of protecting the craft beer trade in Namibia.  It will encourage beer connoisseurs to become involved in an exciting local business venture that deserves to succeed. Participants will receive a certificate valid for one-year recognising their contributions and in addition will receive Camelthorn  beer at discounted prices .  The beer can be collected from participating distributors within the next 12 months. Packages vary between N$ 1000 – N$ 5000 and the member will receive discounts of between 10%-20% , depending on the package selected. Continue reading

Camelthorn ingredients

Jörg tells us more about Camelthorn's ingredients

Today we’d like to tell you a little more about what makes Camelthorn Brewing Company beers so special. It’s not only that we lovingly brew beers in the only independent brewery in Namibia, but also the special ingredients that we source from around the world to give them their special flavours.

Beer is made using malted barley, hops and water. These ingredients are standard, but a brews aroma, flavour and colour comes from the different varieties that one uses and so the options and possibilities are endless. Continue reading

Beer needs people to enjoy it!

As a brewery it gives us so much joy when people love the brews that we produce. It makes all our hard work feel worth the effort and drives us to continue what we are doing, and to strive to do better. But it is also great when your distributors are as enthusiastic as if they’d been involved in the process from the beginning. In Sweden we have those kinds of people.

Henrik Bergquist, Hannes Berts and Jon Widegren are from First Signs of Water and have been working up a storm up north. Their company searches for unusual and quality beers from around the world and introduces them to Sweden’s beer lovers, and these lovers have found Camelthorn! Continue reading
