Beer wars: NBL takes on Dessert lager

Namibia is really a beer loving country vakwetu! Namibian Breweries Limited has taken on the new kid on the block Dessert Lager on a technicality that Dessert Lager has the same liquid content as NBLs Tafel lite beer.

After it was reported in a local daily newspaper that NBL was taking Dessert Lager to court due to unauthorised use of a recipe is akin to theft of intellectual property because Dessert Lager beer’s content is similar to Tafel lite’s beer.

Dessert Lager is co-owned by Homateni Kapewangolo, Matti Kaapangelwa and Petrus Indongo and through their company HP97 Investement  which brews the Desert Lager beer that was launched in December 2018. Kapewangolo and Kaapangelwa are former employees of NBL.

Managing Director of NBL, Hendrik van der westhuizen cleared up allegations that NBL wanted to take Dessert lager to court stating that it was a small understanding.

Take a look at some of the tweets below by the van der westhuizen clarifying himself on the Dessert lager issue:

We hope all this gets resolved quickly. For now, drink your beer!
