Brewmaster Apiwe Nxusani-Mawela takes us through her beer-making journey
Brewmaster Apiwe Nxusani is one of the few woman brewmasters in South Africa.
Nxusani shares how she got into the world of beer after studying industrial microbiology.
I am a microbiologist. I got a bursary with SAB to actually do my honours and that's how I got into the beer world. It was never about the product per se, it was more the sciences around the production of the product.Apiwe Nxusani, Brewamster - Brewhogs
Brewing Bold is one of the beers she has produced for SAB under her brewery called Brewsters Craft.
The Bold, I made for SAB as part of the women's month campaign that was running. It was conceptualised by four women. I was in charge of the actual product. The campaign was shot by a full women team.Apiwe Nxusani, Brewamster - Brewhogs
She says the industry is slowly transforming.
One of the tasks I have given to myself is to be part of that change. At the brewery I employ mainly women. I want to make sure that after me there are many more women brewers.Apiwe Nxusani, Brewamster - Brewhogs
