Soweto Gold Craft Beer

Soweto Gold has come home! The Ubuntu Kraal Brewery in Orlando West Ext, Soweto.
...this is how it all started...
MadMead Brewing Co. owns and operates the Ubuntu Kraal Brewery - Home of Soweto Gold and is set to usher in a new era in the South African liquor industry – producing the first regional township-branded clear craft beer targeting the aspiring black middle class.
In the shadow of the brewing giants, we have found an opportunity and a regional premium thirst never before quenched.

Ubuntu Kraal Brewery will brew a number of proprietary regional craft beers under the name “Soweto Gold” - ready for distribution in Soweto, Johannesburg in early 2014.
In 2015 we will add an additional range of unique and distinctively regional, yet universally quaffable and playful craft beers under catchy and appropriate proprietary brands.

MadMead Brewing Co. owns the exclusive rights to manufacture and distribute beer under the proprietary trademarks “Soweto Gold”.
The brewing of beer is an ancient African craft performed by the female members of the family. MadMead Brewery will revive the age-old traditions by training only female master brewers.
The MadMead Brewery will be a active member of ARA (Association for Responsible Alcohol Use) and a contributing member in the community.

Allow us to introduce MadMaster Brewer and Co-Founder of MadMead Brewing Co.... 
CBO - Chief Beer Officer
A native of Natal, Ndumiso’s career really took off at Norit in the Netherlands where he was a junior engineer, testing the filter ability of beer using a revolutionary membrane filter.

His passion and ingenuity and foremost his love for beer is well known in the industry and SABMiller got their claws into Ndumiso again and literally stole him back as Consultant/Process Engineer where he was responsible for conducting process capability studies on filtration and brewinf processes as well as drafting proposals on process engineering improvements to achieve quality standards on all beer brands.
Ndumiso left SABMiller in September 2013 to pursue his passion for brewing and beer as a Founder and majority shareholder of MadMead Brewing Co..
And the rest – as they say - is liquid history…
