“We avoid gimmicks and don’t follow beer fashion for the sake of fashion”

You might assume that all beer is vegan. Despite being brewed from plant-based ingredients, many beers are clarified using ‘finings’ of animal origin (gelatine from cows and pigs and issinglass from fish bladders). In addition, lactose is often used to build body in stouts and beers…but not for the experienced brewers! Instead, they store their beers far longer than the industry standard, giving the yeast and protein sufficient time to naturally settle out and then in some of their beers they use state of the art clarification that means they use zero animal products at any point in our production.

They are stocked all over Kenya and have tap rooms at The Sarit Centre, Village Market and Nairobi Street Kitchen. You can try out a range of new craft beer straight from the brewery.
