The United National Breweries branch in Durban, the Khangela Brewery, is the producer of the biggest Umgombothi in South Africa. If you havenít heard of this type of beer it is a traditional beer made from Sorghum and has an exceptionally unique flavour that is an acquired taste to foreigners, but very popular amongst locals.
Producing between seven and nine million litres of beer annually and distributed throughout the country, the popular iJuba brand is a household name for many, and even though they produce plenty of litres of beer the turn over each year is relatively low because it is essentially a low cost beer.
Guided tours of the brewery are available from Tuesday to Thursday and there is a small onsite pub that is enjoyed by employees, however snacks and a beer tasting can be arranged on request after the tour.
