Global brewers are pushing beer boom in Africa

International brewers in Africa are expanding their production of beers based on local ingredients, snapping up craft brewers and introducing more brands as low-cost beers gain popularity on the fast-growing but still poor continent. Diageo acquired a South African rival specializing in local beer last year, while SABMiller is opening new production lines in markets such as Zimbabwe where cheap competitors and illicit brews often out-sell more globally recognized competitors. Diageo unit Uganda Breweries Limited (UBL) has pinned hopes on Ngule, or “Crown” in the Luganda language, that started production this year based on cassava, a tuber that is a staple food in the nation at the heart of Africa’s Great Lakes region.
