BREWER’S NOTES: In the history of the Nguni people of Southern Africa, it was custom for tribesmen to gather in a circle sharing umquombothi (traditional beer) from a clay pot called ukhamba. So every time you enjoy an Ukhamba with friends and strangers you are celebrating the traditional legacy of the Nguni people. Utywala Bethu!
