There are many different types of beer. Go to any Wegmans and you’ll see a plethora of options. What you won’t see on their shelves however is traditional beer made from maize. I got to try some when i visited Soweto (one of the largest townships, located outside of Johannesburg).
Xhosa beer is typically made by women and consumed by men (say what you will about gender stereotypes, this is how it works in Africa). It’s tastes like any other light draft (minus the bitterness of the hops), but…..well, chunky.
