ABOUT NAMIBIA BREWERIES LIMITED 

Here at NBL our passion is brewing the finest quality beer using only the purest ingredients. As part of the Ohlthaver & List (O&L) Group, we let our purpose “Creating a future, enhancing life” and our corporate value system inspire our unrelenting pursuit of perfection.


We are proud to uphold the tradition established in 1516 and brew our beer according to the Reinheitsgebot Purity Law. Brewed by choice according to the Reinheitsgebot; our products share our local pride wherever they are enjoyed and through our commitment to excellence our beers have become known for their incomparable quality and purity. 


The exceptional brands in our portfolio continue to garner international recognition, winning a series of gold medals during the prestigious Deutsche Landwirtschafts Gesellschaft (DLG) Awards


NBL is not only committed to providing Namibians with amazing experiences by delivering world-class products, we are also dedicated to operating our business in a socially and environmentally responsible manner and giving back to the community. We have made significant investments to ensure that our operations are efficient, environmentally friendly and reduce our carbon footprint. We also continuously seek to uplift the communities in which we operate.

THE REINHEITSGEBOT

At Namibia Breweries, we are extremely proud that we uphold the tradition established in 1516 and brew according to the Reinheitsgebot. We believe that this is the only way to brew a pure beer. It is not an easy task, but NBL chooses not to compromise on quality. All NBL’s beer brands are brewed in strict accordance with the Reinheitsgebot.


The only ingredients we use in our beers are malted barley, hops and water.

We use only the best quality ingredients and NBL imports all its malted barley and hops from suppliers in Europe. Rigorous quality controls and supplier approval procedures are in place to ensure standards are adhered to at all times. Our raw materials are regularly quality tested at accredited laboratories in Europe before being shipped to Namibia.


Brewing according to the Reinheitsgebot alone however, does not guarantee quality beer. It is the combination of excellent quality raw materials and the craftsmanship of our German-trained master brewers that provides the guarantee that you get the best beer possible.


NBL is thus the only large scale commercial brewery in sub Saharan Africa that brews in accordance with the Reinheitsgebot standards of 1516.

The Reinheitsgebot symbol on our beer guarantees that you get only the very best that beer can offer. Exceptional quality!

OUR HERITAGE

At the end of the 19th century valuable commodities such as beer were imported from Europe. The beer brewed for the colder European climate was found to be unsuitable for the hot climate in Namibia. This led to the establishment of four local breweries in 1904 namely; Kronen Brauerei (Swakopmund), Omaruru Brewery, Klein Windhoek Brewery and Felsenkeller Brewery (Windhoek). 


On 29 October 1920 the four breweries were acquired by Messrs Carl List and Hermann Ohlthaver who consolidated them to form The South West Breweries Limited .


The company acquired the Hansa Brauerei in Swakopmund in 1967.  South West Breweries Limited  was by then already, the only remaining independent commercial brewery in Southern Africa. With Namibia’s independence in 1990, South West Breweries Ltd changed its name to the current name of Namibia Breweries Ltd (NBL).


In May 1996, NBL listed on the Namibian Stock Exchange (NSX) and became a public owned company. The Ohlthaver & List Group, a major Namibian group, is the controlling shareholder in NBL. 


In 2003, leading drinks company Diageo and brewer Heineken became NBL’s strategic partners. Brandhouse Beverages (Pty) Ltd serves as a vehicle for NBL’s joint venture with Heineken and Diageo in South Africa. In 2008, the joint venture was deepened through the formation of DHN Drinks (Pty) Ltd in South Africa. In addition to penetrating the extensive South African market, NBL is also growing beer volumes in other markets such  as Botswana, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
