Two Tanzania Breweries (TBL) brands have scooped top international awards for best beer, with Safari Lager continuing its winning streak, first registered five years ago.
Kilimanjaro and Safari lagers won gold medals at the ‘Monde Selection 2009,’ an annual event in Brussels, Belgium for tasting alcohol, food, tobacco, perfumes and cosmetics. The Monde Selection is held annually since 1961.
“These Tanzanian products, which have become part of the rich national fabric emerged triumphant by winning the gold medals in the prestigious international Monde Selection awards” according to the TDL marketing director. Safari Lager won gold medals in 2004, 2005, and 2007.
The Belgian owners of Onsea House in Arusha, Tanzania, have a wide range of Tanzanian beers and some imported beers from Belgium and the USA on their drinks list.
Onsea House has also an extensive Wine List with a large choice from top wineries in South Africa to rare bottles from the old wine world, probably the best selection in Tanzania.
