Established on 29 October 1920, Namibia Breweries Limited (NBL) is one of the leading beverage manufacturing companies in Namibia and indeed in Southern Africa. NBL leads the domestic beer market and has significant share of the premium beer category in Southern Africa. In 2003, leading drinks company Diageo and brewer Heineken became NBL’s strategic partners.
At Namibia Breweries, we are proud to uphold the tradition established in 1516 and brew our beer according to the Reinheitsgebot. NBL believes that this is the only way to brew pure beer and does not compromise on the quality of our beer brands. All NBL beer brands are brewed in strict accordance with the Reinheitsgebot “Purity Law” – which only uses three ingredients: malted barley, hops and water. 2013 marks a historical year for NBL to receive four gold medals for Windhoek Lager, Windhoek Draught, Tafel Lager, Windhoek Light, brewed by choice and according to the German Reinheitsgebot “Purity Law” of 1516. Since 2005, the brands Windhoek Lager, Tafel Lager, Windhoek Draught and Windhoek Light enjoys a reputation of quality and purity for which the brands have earned international recognition – including winning the gold medals during the prestigious Deutsche Landwirtschafts-Gesellschaft (DLG) Awards.
