One year ago, Fokofpolisiekar initiated the launch of their 4 part Craft beer series produced by Sir Thomas Brewery. The beers in this range were all named after some the band’s most popular songs and became instant hits.
Sad news is that Dagdronk, Antibiotika, Hemel op die Platteland and Skyn Heilig have now been sold out and will no longer be produced.
Good news is that this is not the end of Fokofpolisiekar and good beer. The band has taken everything that it has learnt in the past year to produce an exceptional Lager brewed by the renowned Devil’s Peak Breweries in Cape Town.
The appropriately titled ‘Fokof Lager’ is mass produced and will be sold on tap at various bars and restaurants throughout South Africa. The very first drop will be poured at Capital Craft in Pretoria as of today, the 13th November 2015. Fokof Lager is definitely the perfect antidote to the heatwave, so if you’re in the area, ask for a pint.
Fokof Lager’s taste can be described as follows:
- Aroma: Clean crisp malt character supported by a mild, spicy and slightly floral aroma of the famous noble Hallertauer Mittelfrüh hops.
- Appearance: Pale yellow in colour and brilliantly clear. Medium white head with good retention.
Flavour: Very delicate malt profile with an unobtrusive hop character and low level of bitterness.
- Mouthfeel: Light in body. Medium to high carbonation level with a full flavoured mouthfeel as a result of the 100% malt used.
- Overall Impression: Easy drinking, fresh and vibrant.
Fans and friends can join Die Bende at Capital Craft on Saturday the 21st of November from 3 PM onwards to celebrate and taste Fokofpolisiekar’s new beer. There will be various give aways with your purchase of a Fokof Lager, so make sure that you join the fun!
Later that evening the party will move to Arcade Empire where the band will be bringing the house down with an explosive live performance in true Fokof-style (something you should not miss if you’re a fan of SA Music or rock music in general).
