Barely a year after being launched, Tale Beerhas won three awards at the prestigious African Beer Cup held in Cape Town, South Africa. The awards recognize and celebrate excellence in the African beer industry, and Tale Beer emerged as a top performer.
Being the first Ghanaian beer to have ever won an award at the African Beer Cup , the beer made its mark emerging with three awards in various categories. Tale is brewed with locally sourced raw materials with over 70% un-husked grains. To ensure clarity of the beer without stripping flavour or aroma, the beer is passed through a centrifuge filtration system. The beer range consists of Farmhouse Ale (Tale 5 – Green) Hibiscus IPA (Tale 6 – Red), Ginger Triple (Tale 7 – Yellow), and Cocoa Stout (Tale 8 – Black), which are a tribute to the national colours of Ghana.
The incredible flavours of the Tale Beers have shown distinctiveness at the African Beer Cup with the Farmhouse Ale winning the Gold medal, the Ginger Triple winning Silver and the Cocoa Stout walking away with a Bronze medal.
Speaking about the awards, Kristof Henot the Managing Director of Specialty Beers Ghana Limited (SBGL), brewers of Tale Beer said: “We are honoured to receive these awards, which are a reflection of the hard work and dedication of our team. We are committed to brewing beer that not only satisfies the taste buds of consumers but also reflects the rich cultural heritage of Ghana. We will continue to innovate and push the boundaries of what is possible in the African beer industry”
“Tale Beer is a high-end selection of unique African craft beers, brewed right here in Nsawam, Ghana. These awards are a testament of our commitment to brewing high-quality beers that resonates with consumers across Ghana and beyond”, he added.
SBGL launched Tale in 2022 and the beer has quickly established itself as a contending player in Ghana’s brewing industry. With this recent success, SBGL looks set to continue its growth and cement its position as one of the best craft beer brands in Africa.
The company invested in developing its recipes with the assistance of a Belgian university using mainly adjuncts available in Ghana such as broken rice, hereby replacing imported malted barley.
The African Beer Cup recently held its annual competition in Cape Town, with 242 beers from 20 African countries evaluated by a panel of 52 judges from 16 different countries. The competition is unique in that each beer is judged twice and all judging is blind, with judges focusing on stylistic accuracy rather than personal preference. The awards ceremony took place at the Woodstock Brewery in Cape Town on April 22.
