Windhoek is a 100% pure beer that adheres to the Reinheitsgebot (German Purity) Law. It is a thirst quenching Premium lager from one of the world driest countries.
Windhoek’s adherence to the Reinheitsgebot Law is reinforced by Master Brewer Christian Mueller who studied for 15 years in Germany and is dedication to uphold the values. It takes 5 weeks of brewing and conditioning before the lagers are released for sale.
Unable to grow hops in the country they are imported from Germany’s Hallertau region, malt barley is sourced from a handful of selected suppliers in Germany and a German yeast strain is used. Water, a precious resource in a desert country, is drawn from a private storage dam 47 miles from the brewery.
Windhoek and its owners NBL have a strong commitment towards the environment and wildlife. They are major supporters of rhino conservation, previously funding a Piper Cub plane to help the fight against rhino horn poaching. In 2019 in the UK they have successfully run a campaign, including collaborative events with stockists, to raise £5000 in aid of Save the Rhino International.
