Darling Brew, Africa’s first Carbon Neutral Brewery, brings you their latest beer Satao’s Ivory, a baobab IPA which was brewed in collaboration with American based brewery, Max Lager. This limited-edition IPA hopped with Lemondrop and Azacca, is packed with tart, citrus-like baobab, and rich caramel flavours and a good dose of hops. The pear-like aroma of ripe baobab fruit combines with fresh grass and melon from the dry hop. As has become synonymous with the Darling Brew Slow Brewed range, this beer is yet another quaffable, sessionable, ‘I want more’ beer.
The release of this beer brings together 3 giants;
the African elephant, Africa’s largest land mammal that is now listed as vulnerable as its total population has dwindled to 415 000. Darling Brew has used ‘Satao’ the largest tusker in Kenya whose tusks weighed in at 50 kilograms each and who was poached at the age of 48 in May 2014, to highlight the plight of these majestic giants.
The Baobab Tree, Africa’s largest tree. Referred to as the tree of life for its multiple purposes to nature and ecosystem in its own entirety. The fruit, which was used in this brew is known for its antioxidant qualities, with high levels of calcium, potassium, Vitamin C and fibre. What better fruit to brew a beer with than this super fruit.
This release is brought to you on Freedom Day, our third Giant, Nelson Mandela, who was compared in his remembrance celebrations but Guinea President, Alpha Conde, to a Baobab Tree, an invincible tree under which everyone shelters.
Style: Red IPA
