South Africa

South African brewing has been heavily influenced by the European settlers from Holland, Britain and Germany; though there is a history of indigenous production using maize and sorghum before the arrival of malted barley and hops.

RSA accounts for about a third of Africa’s total beer consumption and the vast majority of this is controlled by what was South African Breweries -SAB – and their dominant brands Castle and Carling. SAB was acquired  by Anheuser-Busch InBev in 2016 and now trades as as ANH on the Johannesburg market.

Over the past couple of decades a good number of craft and micro breweries have emerged, mostly serving drinkers on a regional basis.
