Namibia Breweries were originally founded in 1920 by two German’s who bought and merged four local breweries. German influence throughout Namibia in this period is clear to see and particularly played a part in the breweries early heritage. It was decreed that all beers should be brewed according to the Reinheitsgebot, or the German purity law of 1516. This is still the case today. Windhoek is their best known ale - a classic pilsener in style.
