Zambian Beer

The Zambian beer comes in two types, opaque beer and clear beer. Most affluent Zambians drink clear beer.

The country's most popular beer is Mosi Lager. The name is derived from Victoria Falls, Mosi-O-Tunya, meaning ‘Smoke that Thunders’. The motto for the beer is “Truly Zambian”, if you don’t believe it - ask anyone who has tested it!

Mosi Lager Castle Lager The other popular brands are Castle Lager and Rhino Lager. These are brewed by Zambian Breweries’, subsidiaries of South African Breweries. The other beer worth mentioning is Eagle Lager.

The Alcohol content of Mosi is 4%, while that of Castle is 5%. Eagle Lager’s alcohol content is 5.5% but Rhino is at 4%. These beers are commonly found in Zambia.

Beers in Zambia are served chilled and cost about $1.00 in most bars in towns, but are high priced in lodges and hotels.

There are also imported brands such as Amstel and Windhoek which cost almost double the local beers.

Less affluent Zambians go for opaque beer called Chibuku – the reason? It is very cheap! It is usually brewed from maize or sorghum. In most cases it is drunk in a group. When you buy a liter or so of Chibuku, you pass it around to your drinking friends.

Are you overly worried about the Chibuku bar’s hygiene? You can sample pre-packaged opaque beer of Chibuku ,Chipolopolo, Chinika or other brands available on the market.
