The Beer Hunt continues....in Cabinda....
Favorite thing: Wherever you go, whatever you do, sampling the local beer is definite must.
What do the locals drink, what beer is most popular, which beer is hardest to find, does it come in a half pint glass just like grandma used to drink…or better still, a full pint glass like I drink??? These are all good questions that need to be answered...
Lucky for me, the boys on the base had stocked up on Windhoek beer, which was most fortunate, as I had never had Windhoek before. Being from Namibia, Windhoek would be another adventure in drinking as all beers from Africa are, most of which are a bad adventure, but an adventure nonetheless. Remembering those tasty ostrich medallions that I had on my Air Namibia flight into Angola, I thought Windhoek can’t be that bad. But I was a bit suspect since the can reminded me of cheap, mass-produced U.S. beers, sort of like PBR or Old Milwaukee Light.
However, with one sip of Windhoek, I quickly deduced that Namibia had a lot of good things to offer and that I was extremely fortunate to have a little taste of Namibia in Cabinda, after all, I could be stuck with Eka!!! Brewed by Namibia Breweries Limited, Windhoek is a fine lager with a nice finish. And I gues it should come as no surprise with Namibia's German influence, Windhoek lager is brewed in accordance with the German Purity Law, the Reinheitsgebot tradition, which does not allow any other ingredients apart from barley malt, hops, maize and water. What a fine idea...Related to:
